ScarletApps FAQ

    What type of encryption is used? Is it SSL?

    Yes. Encrypted (TLS/SSL) connections are enforced for all web browser sessions.
    All Google Apps services have the ability to be configured to require access using encryption. Encryption is also required for access to mail data by third party clients. The mobile email client also uses encrypted access to ensure the privacy of communications. Encryption is not offered on the Start Page service at this time. Since SSL is enabled on the ScarletMail domain, you will not be able to see your mail in the Gmail gadget on the Google Apps Start Page since it is not served over SSL.

    Why Google?

    This project was initiated as a result of university wide student input. Other free, hosted email solutions that were able to support the Rutgers student constituency were considered such as Microsoft Live@edu, Yahoo, etc. Google Apps for Education was selected because of its extensive suite of applications and its success at many other universities.
