Small rant

Webmail is annoying me – as I am living in France, the only access I have to my warwick emails is via Webmail, and recently I've noticed that more often than not I get either a 'The server is busy and cannot process your request' message, or a 'Your post office is unavailable, please contact your service administrator' message. Both of which are very irritating and don't let me see my emails, which might be very important as I am not on campus. Grrrrrrrrr.
Humph. Works today though! (Thank goodness, had to do my campus accommodation application.)
Colds are rubbish.

    Unless you used a program such as Outlook Express or Mozilla Thunderbird

  2. Groupwise is much worse with IMAP or POP than it is with webmail…

  3. I could indeed use a program such as outlook express if I was running windows, but as I have a mac (the equivalent of outlook express being entourage, which does not recognise webmail…) I haven't managed to sort this out!

    Groupwise is far, far, far more reliable with IMAP than with webmail.

    You can set up a new IMAP account with the settings:

    Server: gwmail.warwick.ac.uk

    Or a POP3 account with:

    Server: mail.warwick.ac.uk

    and your email username and password as the username and password

    Interesting, I have completely the opposite experience. I've used it with thunderbird and Outlook, and it's been rubbish with both – extremely slow, dropping the connection frequently, taking forever to refresh a folder etc.

    Webmail is occasionally down, and mostly rubbish, but most of the time it's working sufficiently well to be able to send and read email.

    Me, I still use mail.csv :-)

    Hardly ever have a problem with IMAP in Thunderbird. Guess it depends which mailbox you're on with webmail, the student one seems permenantly down whenever I try :(

  7. Lia,

    Drop me an email and I'll send you a set of instructions to make Entourage work with the universities archaic Groupwise Servers…
