GEFD Email Setup

OPERATIONAL MEMBERS: Once you set up your new account and checked to make sure you are able to send and receive email there, you must submit this form to notify the Training Team that they can now contact you at your new email address.

First, follow these instructions to set a recovery phone number and/or email address, which will allow you to reset your password if you lose it without contacting the administrator.

Next, set up your email access. You have three options to access your GEFD email:

  • Set up your account with an email client (Apple Mail, Outlook, etc.) - Preferred method

    1. Find the new account setup page on your email client

    2. If your client has an automatic setup option, choose “Google”, enter your gefd.org credentials in the Google window that pops up; everything else should happen automatically

    3. When prompted to enter a "Name" for the account, use your name, not a description of the account.


  • Set up forwarding to another email account (note: you will not be able to send email from your gefd.org address)

    1. Log in to your webmail at mail.gefd.org

    2. Near the top-right of the screen, find the gear icon and choose "Settings” from the dropdown menu

    3. Pick the “Forwarding and POP/IMAP” tab

    4. Click “Add a forwarding address”

    5. Enter the address you want to forward to and follow the instructions to verify that you own the address


  • Access via webmail at mail.gefd.org (not recommended because you’ll need to regularly log in to make sure you don’t miss anything important)
