Unsure which mail environment to use? Go to mail.UGent.be

Caution! webmail.UGent.be can only be used by users of the 'Cyrus' mail environment (See: E-mail address and e-mail environment) and users of a shared mailbox

Webmail 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. Webmail is especially handy for reading e-mail on the move.

If you do not belong to the 'Cyrus' mail environment and do not use a shared mailbox, the following message appears when you log on to webmail.ugent.be:
"Login failed. Unfortunately you cannot use this service, you have an exchange mailbox. Use https://owa.ugent.be."
Users of the 'Exchange' environment use Outlook Web Access ("owa.ugent.be"), the webmail service of Microsoft Exchange.
