Problem: When a Google Docs user sends a link to any user with an @sandiego.edu address, clicking the link takes the user to the login page for Torero Mail.
The link you receive from Google Docs will look similar to the following:
This issue first occurred when the University started using Torero Mail, which is powered by Google. Apparently, google.com interprets the /a/sandiego.edu portion of the URL and assumes the recipient is a Torero Mail user, so it will redirect the user to our Torero Mail login page. The sandiego.edu portion seems to be added when a Google Docs user selects a recipient in the sandiego.edu domain. This is something that Google's engineering team is working to resolve.
The workaround for the issue is:
- Copy the link from your e-mail application and paste it into the address bar of your web browser.
- Delete the portion of the URL that reads /a/sandiego.edu.
- Press enter. When this section is removed, Google Docs will show the appropriate document as intended.
