Useless Email

Are you looking for an email service with the minimum of ease and use?
Welcome to Groupwise!

We promise you can access your emails up to 20% of the time! Just think – that's access to your job application news, important sequencing results and all comminications regarding where you supposed to be and when, at least once with every 5 attempts you make through the day!

For your conveniece, we have taken the executive decision NOT to transfer final year students to the squirrel system because – even though they have as much right to a decent university email account as anyone else – they'll be leaving soon and don't really matter. Please be patient with any minor faults, like being entirely unable to access your electronic communications from one day to the next. Our dedicated Customer "Service" team will periodically promise to be reviewing the system to iron out any problems. But don't hold your breath.

Here at Groupwise we are striving for continuous improvement. Our latest and most reliable communication package to date – the "Quill & Parchment" operating system – will be ready for release sometime in the near future. Watch this space!

  1. 20% ? You're one of the lucky ones.

    Btw – I believe we can swap over when ever we like. Although it isn't that clear and I'm wondering if it takes all our old emails with it.

    Yes, final years can swap over themselves, and it's very easy.
    Go to link
    You still have access to your gwise inbox for old emails etc, but as of 3am on the night after you make the switch any new emails to your warwick account go to the squirrel inbox.

    Do it, it takes a minute, and I really wish I'd done it earlier!

  3. If you are having problems with GroupWise and there is no newsflash on the ITS homepage when please don't forget to contact the ITS helpdesk on x73737 because obviously we can only fix what we know is broken.

    If your currently having problems logging in to GroupWise webmail, try logging in through https://webmail.warwick.ac.uk (note the s is https), and if your browser tries to fill in the rest of this address for you ignore it and keep typing it in, ensuring there is nothing after .ac.uk – this should allow you to successfully login.

    As for smail as Cat says any user can move their account to smail, its just that the move isn't mandatory for finalists.
