Bah! Very annoying.
All is not lost! Help is still available.
You have TWO options:
1. Disable Inbox “smart” sorting.
Click on the “Gear” at the top-right of your gmail window, select “Configure inbox”. Uncheck all checkmarks and click “OK”. All mail will be listed together.
2. Teach “smart” sorting which messages should go into “Primary”. (follow these steps…)
Move message context
1. Click on the pesky (but useful!) “Promotions” tab.
2. Find the message you were missing from Help Desk.
3. Click and drag the message over to the “Primary” tab.
(one more step!)
Verify change for future messages
When you see this little pop up, click “Yes” to have future messages from Help Desk go automatically to “Primary”.
Both the message you just received (1) AND future replies (2) from Help Desk (or any member of our team replying though Help Desk) will show up properly in the “Primary” inbox.
Dana Hall Community,
From Google reports, approximately 1 million Google accounts were affected by yesterday’s phishing attack (~ .1% of their 1 billion users!!!)
Below you’ll find information on what you can do to secure any of your Google accounts including your Dana Hall Google Apps account.
Each user has the ability to run a security health check. This security check is only available to each user/owner of that account. Because of this exclusivity, the Technology Department is unable to run a security check on a user’s account for them.
This check must be done by each user themselves.
- Perform a search in Google with the following keywords, “google account security check”
- Choose the Security Checkup – My Account – Google link as shown above
- Proceed through the various sections of the checkup. Click Done or Looks Good at the end of each sub-section.
- The last section is important to review…

MacKeeper is a program which often appears as part of “scareware” ads. These ads are designed to trick individuals into downloading potentially malicious software. Scareware ads typically generate pop-up windows that resemble computer system-generated messages indicating the computer is infected with counterfeit antivirus and antispyware software or a first aid utility software. We would highly recommend you remove MacKeeper from your machine.
One of the best anti-malware software tools available that Dana Hall recommends is Malware Bytes. Download a free Mac OSX version from here.

When you wish to migrate your data away from Dana Hall’s Google services you can utilize a service called “Google Takeout”. Takeout delivers your data in a format that you will be able to use either in a personal Google account, or many other services that provide import options for these common formats.
This guide will describe the process used to enroll your account in the Dana Hall Password Center. After enrolling, you can change your DanaConnect password at any time, or have the account password reset.
