This is off topic no?
Yes, it is ;^) and school mail systems are horrible. It's built from squirrel mail and is about as user friendly as an of an angry squirrel. I would rather be excluded from the list than forced to use such a goofy tool.

Sigh, much as I basically agree with you, a number of our
also use gmail, etc, these days.
Not to mention the PhD students who wouldn't like to be excluded ;-)
Do these PhD students' schools not have their own domain name? :-)
Note that it's possible to let gmail manage email to/from addresses that use other domain names. See:http://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/gmail/tEaJstfhzeI
The problem is not the 'gmail' service per se (provided that you don't mind your email being scanned :-). The problem is the "@gmail.com" email address suffix, which advertises to the world that you're not particularly relevant. (Ditto for "@yahoo.com", "@hotmail.com", "@aol.com" addresses, etc.)
