Planned GoVirtual Lab Maintenance September 11-17

The UC San Diego GoVirtual virtual computer lab will undergo a series of patches and upgrades between Thursday, September 11 and Wednesday, September 17. The lab will be intermittently unavailable during this time causing users to lose connection.

ACMS encourages GoVirtual users to visit a campus computer lab to access campus software while the upgrades are being completed to ensure no work is lost due to GoVirtual down time.

We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your patience as we make improvements to the GoVirtual service.

For questions about outages or the GoVirtual computer lab, contact the ACMS Help Desk.

ACMS Students Using Gmail’s POP3 Download Service

UPDATE:  ‘acsmail’ has been reconfigured so that Gmail won’t cause trouble for our email customers, and Gmail forwarding has been resumed. Gmail forwarders should be receiving email now, but may experience delays until Google is able to resolve the issue.

Contact the ACMS Help Desk with questions. (858) 534-2267 or


Gmail offers a service which downloads email from a student’s ACMS mailbox via the ‘POP3’ protocol and incorporates those messages into the student’s Gmail mailbox.  Google calls this feature “Check mail from other accounts (using POP3).”

We’ve been experiencing a large increase in connections to ACMS mail servers, which is overloading our servers and adversely affecting all ACMS email customers. We’re working with Google to correct the issue, but cannot predict when the problem will be corrected.

To maintain service to our user base, we’ve temporarily blocked Gmail POP3 servers from accessing ‘’.

If you have been using Gmail downloading via POP3, please access email via ACMS Webmail until the issue has been resolved and the service is restored.

Contact the ACMS Help Desk at (858) 534-2267 or for more information or for help with alternate email access.

Continue to check the ACMS web page or the ACMS blog for updates.
