What is ECCS Cloud Email?

ECCS Cloud Email is a Cloud Email service that is available to all users with a UTokyo Account. It gives users access to Google Workspace for Education.

The Google tools and services that are available through ECCS Cloud Email include:

Please refer to the User’s Guide (currently available only in Japanese) in the ECCS website for a full list of available tools and services.

Once you create a ECCS Cloud Email account, you can change your sharing settings to limit file access to users of ECCS Cloud Email (limited access). This is a feature that is not available to regular Google accounts. To access files limited to users of ECCS Cloud Email, users will need to set up their ECCS Cloud Email account, even if they already have a Google account.

Initial Setup Procedures

Task: Set your email address

* Even if you are already using ECCS Cloud Email, you can change your email address by following this procedure as in the initial setup.

  1. Access the UTokyo Account User Menu and enter the username and password for your UTokyo Account to log in (Please note that the username is only a 10-digit number here).
  2. Click “ECCS Cloud Email (mail address)” on the left to open the email address setting page. Enter your preferred username in the “Email Address” field and click “SAVE”.

After setting your email address, it will take up to about 40 minutes to take effect, so please wait a while until you are able to log in.

Check: Log in

  1. Please wait for about 40 minutes for your newly set email address to be reflected in the system.
  2. Go to the Google login page.

Check: Make sure you can access UTokyo member-only pages

  1. Access the ECCS Cloud Email member-only test page (Google Spreadsheet).
  2. You will be asked to sign in to your ECCS Cloud Email if not already signed in. Follow the same login procedure as before.

Troubleshooting guide
  • (On PC/smartphone) You are taken to the “You need permission” page and you see who you are signed in as (e.g., “You are signed in as example@gmail.com ”) at the bottom: This happens when you are signed in with a Google account other than your ECCS Cloud Email. (e.g., @gmail.com, @edu.k.u-tokyo.ac.jp). Click the email address under “You are signed in as”. You will be taken to the “Choose an account”, where you can switch your account. Select your ECCS Cloud Email account (xxxx@g.ecc.u-tokyo.ac.jp). If your ECCS Cloud Email account does not show up, click “Use another account” and sign in with your ECCS Cloud Email.
  • (On a smartphone) You are taken to the “You need permission” or “Request access” page: This happens when you are signed in with a Google account other than your ECCS Cloud Email. Follow the steps in “Log in on your phone” below, and then try to access the test document again.

Optional task: Log in on your smartphone

This is for users of Gmail or other Google apps.

  1. Open a Google app, such as Gmail, and click your profile picture in the upper-right corner (either a picture you set or the default avatar with your initials).
  2. Tap “Add another account” to add your Google account.
  3. Enter your email address from the above procedure.
  4. Unless you have already signed in to UTokyo Account, the UTokyo Account sign-in page will be displayed. Please sign in. For username, please enter “10-digit common ID + @utac.u-tokyo.ac.jp“.

Exercise: Use your email

You can use your email address xxxx@g.ecc.u-tokyo.ac.jp in Gmail.

  1. Access Gmail.
  2. You will be prompted to log in if you have not already done so. Follow the same login procedure as before.
  3. You can use Gmail’s email service with your ECCS Cloud Email, just like a regular Gmail account. Try sending an email to another email address you have or check whether you can receive an email sent from your other email address.
