How To: Fix Apps in My Dock That Don't Work (Messaging, Facetime, Etc.)

THE MAILBOX AND MESSAGING ICON DON'T APPEAR TO BE WORKING IN MY DOCK.
 
That is correct.  

Students have been provided with a Gmail account for educational purposes and must be accessed via an internet browser.  

The Apple mailbox icon if set up will only receive incoming mail.  It is the expectation that students will utilize Google Gmail and other free Google features (ie. Calendar, Translate, Photos, Drive, Sites, etc.) within the classroom.  ISS has provided students and teachers with access to Google Apps for Education.  

Messaging, Facetime and other Apps may be disabled for classroom management purposes.
