Area Email Addresses

Area 48 provides email addresses for all trusted servants at the area and district level. AA’s Internet Guidelines suggest the use of emails that can be passed along when a trusted servant rotates out.  If you need access to an existing Area or District email address OR your district has created a new position, please email the area webmaster.

How to access your area email

Area 48 can be accessed using Gmail on your computer browser or on your mobile device (Smartphones and Tablets). If you are familiar with Gmail, it’s as simple as choosing Add Account and signing in. If you are not familiar with Gmail, please see below for some guidance.

On your computer
  1. Navigate to: https://mail.google.com/
  2. Enter your Email address
  3. Enter your password
  4. Click Sign in

If you are already signed into gmail

  1. Click on the circle in the upper right (it should have your profile photo or be a solid color with a letter)
  2. Click “Add Account” in lower left of the box
  3. If a list pops up, scroll to the bottom and choose “Use Another Account”
  4. Enter your Email
  5. Enter your password
  6. Click Sign in

Notes: Google likes to use Recovery Email and Recovery Phone numbers. These can get confusing if you are not familiar with gmail. Below are some general guidelines to help.

Google may ask you to setup a new recovery phone number or recovery email address, please skip this. You should see a small “Skip” or “Not Now” link towards the bottom of the box. It makes it more difficult to transfer the email address to the next trusted servant. If you ever lose or forget your password, the area webmaster can reset your password for you.

If the last person to have your email account did set a recovery email address or password and it is saying that you must enter the recovery email or phone number that is already on file, please email the area webmaster.

On your Mobile Device
  1. Visit the app store or google playstore on your device
  2. Download the Gmail app
  3. Open the Gmail app
  4. Enter your email
  5. Enter your password
  6. Sign in

If you already have the app downloaded onto your phone

  1. Click the menu icon in the upper left corner  ≡
  2. Scroll to “Settings” at the bottom
  3. Scroll to “Add Account”
  4. Select “Google”
  5. Enter your email
  6. Enter your phone number
  7. Sign in
