GroupWise Webaccess Enhancements

Nov 12/12

In response to concerns raised around the behavior of the new GroupWise web interface when used with some devices, ITS is making the older "classic" interface available. There are two ways to access the classic interface:

  1. Use your browser to connect to as usual. The web server will direct you to either the new or classic interface, based on the type of the device you are using. If you are using an iPad, iPhone, PlayBook or Android device you will be directed to the classic interface. Otherwise, you will be directed to the new interface.

  2. Or, use your browser to connect to for a direct connection to the classic interface.

This change will be done on the morning of Wednesday, November 14 2012. It may take a few hours before off-campus users will see the new behaviour.

If you have bookmarked the URL, you should delete the bookmark, and add it again once you have successfully connected.

If you are using Internet Explorer 9, you will most likely need to turn on "compatibility mode". This is done by clicking the small "broken page" icon that will appear near the URL in the address bar.

This step is only needed if you experience problems displaying the message list or messages. For more details, please visit

Please direct comments or questions to the Employee Service Desk at extension 4357.
