Caution! owa.UGent.be can ONLY be used by users of the 'Exchange' environment. (See: E-mail address and e-mail environment.)

Caution! Users of the 'Exchange' environment who use a shared mailbox can consult it via "webmail.UGent.be".

"owa" stands for Outlook Web Access, the webmail service of Microsoft Exchange. Outlook Web Access allows you to access, send, receive and manage your e-mail through a web browser. You log in with your UGent login name and password and you can immediately consult and manage your e-mail. Outlook Web Access is especially handy for reading e-mail on the move.

If you do not belong to the 'Exchange' environment, the following message appears when you log on to owa.UGent.be:
"U kunt niet worden aangemeld bij UGent Microsoft Exchange. Controleer uw domeinnaam, gebruikersnaam en wachtwoord en probeer het opnieuw."
Users of the 'Cyrus' mail environment use ("webmail.ugent.be").

Using owa.ugent.be

Surf to owa.UGent.be sleutel-icoon and sign in using your UGent login name and central password.

Do you read your "owa" mail on a "foreign" pc? After you are done, clear all browser data, close all browser windows and delete saved attachments.
