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.
