Email Help Files

If you have recently been elected to an office previously held by another member, your email and Google+ profile will need to be updated to reflect the changes. For illustration purposes, we are providing instructions to change Deborah Cayer from the office of President to the office of Vice President:

FOR EMAIL:  
1. Open a web browser and type mail.ellisriverriders.com If prompted to do so, enter your username (vicepresident@ellisriverriders.com) and your password. 
2. Next click on the sprocket icon in the upper right hand corner (for settings) and click on SETTINGS. 
3. Next, click on the fourth tab over (across the top) called ACCOUNTS. Take a look a the second item down called SEND MAIL AS. Make sure it says DEBORAH CAYER <viceprisident@ellisriverriders.com> . If it show's Anita's name, click on EDIT INFO on the right and switch the display name to YOUR name. Also make sure it says the correct email address in bold letters under your name and then click on SAVE CHANGES. If there were two email addresses under your name, delete the extras. 
4. You can then EXIT out of that browser. 
5. Lastly, if you use an email client to manage your email (anything other than GMAIL web interface), then let tech support know what that is so they can provide you the proper steps to configure it properly. Most of us use something like Thunderbird, Outlook Express, Live Mail, iPhone, etc. or a combination.

FOR GOOGLE+ PROFILE:

View & edit your Google+ profile

When you update your profile, you’re helping others get to know who you are, and what you like.

And don’t worry, you can choose what you share by using your profile settings. The only information you can’t hide is your name, profile photo, and cover photo. Your tagline will also be public if you add one, as well as your YouTube channel if it’s linked to your account.

Privacy settings

You can choose what you share on your profile using your profile settings. That includes things like the "Basic Information" section of your profile, your profile tabs, and your community memberships. Learn how to choose how you share information on your Google+ profile.

You can see how your profile looks to other people, which may be helpful if you choose to hide parts of your profile. Using the “View profile as” drop-down, you can make sure other people only see the information you want to share with them.

Computer

  1. Open Google+.
  2. In the top left corner, click the drop-down menu  > Profile.
  3. In the upper left corner, use the “View profile as” drop-down. You can select “Yourself” or “Public.” You can also type the name of someone in your circles.

Android app / iPhone/iPad app /Mobile browser

You can’t view your profile as someone else on mobile just yet. Please use a computer to view your profile as someone else.

If you don’t want to use Google+ anymore, you can delete your profile at any time. And you’ll still be able to use other Google products like Gmail and Google Search.
