FAQ – Creating a Google Account

One of the Benefits of joining Morrison-Q is being added to the Morrison-Q Google Discussion Group. This is an Email Discussion Group – where an email message sent to the group will go to all members of the group. When a member┬áresponds to a message sent to the group – the reply also goes to everyone in the group. The Discussion group is not part of our Morrison-Q WEB page (so your Morrison-Q password will not work). If you wanted to have WEB Page access to the history of the discussions you would need to have a Google Account (using the same email address as you do for Morrison-Q). You do not need a Google account if you only want to receive and send emails to the group.

To create a Google Account, visit the account-creation page, enter your current email address, and choose a password. Once you’ve finished registering, you’ll receive a verification email. Click the link in that email to complete the verification process.

Your Google Account will give you access to a variety of Google products, including iGoogle, Web History, Picasa, and many more. When creating an account, please keep these guidelines in mind:

  • Your Google Account username should be an email address from which you currently send and receive mail, unless you’d prefer to sign up for Gmail.
  • Your password should be at least eight characters long and can’t be a commonly used word. Select a unique combination of letters and numbers.
  • In the Word Verification section, you’ll need to type the wavy characters exactly as they appear in the picture.
  • Creating a Google Account doesn’t give you Gmail. However, you can sign up for Gmail by visiting the Gmail homepage and clicking the Sign up for Gmail link under the sign-in box. If you’re interested in learning more about Gmail, please visit the About Gmail page.

Note: you’ll be able to access all the same Google products mentioned above with your Gmail username and password.

Note: you must also be a member of this group to join in the Morrison-Q Google Discussion Group.
