2.  ACCESSING GATORLINK E-MAIL VIA WEBMAIL:
Checking your Gatorlink email is as simple as opening your browser (i.e.
Internet Explorer, Mozilla, Firefox, etc) and visiting
http://webmail.ufl.edu. Entering your Gatorlink name and password will
gain you access to the webmail service, which is an online application
that allows you to view, compose and send e-mail from any computer that
has an internet connection.

The AT Help Desk, http://helpdesk.circa.ufl.edu, has provided detailed
information on UF Webmail, including webmail basics, creating an address
book, and webmail personalization.

3.  ACCESSING GATORLINK E-MAIL ON YOUR COMPUTER:
Gatorlink accounts also can be accessed by many different e-mail programs
such as Outlook Express, Thunderbird, and Eudora, among others. These
programs can be downloaded off the internet, but if you would prefer a
cd-rom, they can be picked up from the UF Bookstore Technology Hub or on
the web at http://www.circa.ufl.edu/cd-rom for a nominal fee. Please note
that these e-mail programs can be used to consolidate and receive e-mail
from multiple sources, including external Internet Service Providers and
free e-mail services. Program-specific information is available on
configuring the various e-mail programs to work with Gatorlink e-mail from
the Help Desk, http://helpdesk.circa.ufl.edu/. Most free e-mail providers
allow users to collect their mail with the user's e-mail programs. This
can be done by adding more accounts but substituting the pop or imap
addresses for your provider. For details on availability, check with the
providers directly.

There are a number of reasons why a Minor or Certificate in Latin American
Studies might be useful to your future career. Hispanics are the largest

United States remains high, even after 9/11 shifted attention to other
world regions. Professionals with language and area knowledge of Latin
America are more competitive in the job market. For a listing of courses
