At work, they blocked personal email. Our IT staff couldn't find a good way to block only gmail so they blocked ALL Google accounts. I asked my supervisor if all Google sign-ins should be blocked and he confirmed gmail only, they just didn't do it correctly. I use Google calendar for work and being unable to sign into it is really hurting me. I've sent a request to our IT dept but they are currently dealing with server upgrades and whatnot.. basically I'm low on the priority list.
So my question is... Is there any way to sign into Google chrome browser or individual Google sites without going through "accounts.google.com"? I don't care about gmail, I'm not trying to go around what they want blocked, I just need to be able to log into Google accounts so I can let outlook sync with Google calendar.
