This tutorial is for those that have been onboarded to RBAC as a new employee and need a little help setting up their new employee email accounts so that they can receive notifications on their phone, send email messages to supervisors and coworkers as well as organize their email folders when the time comes. 

When you first gain access to your email account you’ll have the option of accessing your email through the browser and through the phone application ‘Gmail’ (Recommended choice).

An expectation for RBAC workers is that they check their work email at least once every work-day.
