ACCESSING YOUR MAILBOX THROUGH A WEB BROWSER

1) Visit the following website with your preferred web browser:
gw.ceu.hu
Due to a system upgrade the above website will automatically switch to Secure HTTP protocol, which means that your login information and personal messaging goes through an authenticated secure connection on the Internet.

2) Select your preferred language and log in using your groupwise username and password.

3) Note that only active mailboxes can be accessed through this webaccess procedure. Archives can only be accessed with a GroupWise client running on a CEU computer.

4) Please log out from the webaccess application every time before closing the browser window. The log out button can be found in the top right corner of the website.

 

Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 issue: Due to circumstances beyond our control Internet Explorer 8 may report problems accessing the secure connection to the CEU e-mail server, as a solution for this issue CEU IT Department developed a freely downloadable compact version of Microsoft Internet Explorer 7, which can be downloaded via the following link:
MS Internet Explorer 7
Click the above link, choose Run (or a button with similar meaning) and use the opened browser for accessing CEU webmail, or you can choose Save as.. (or a button with similar meaning) to save this one-file-compact-application to your desktop (for example) so that you will not have to download the program again every time you wish to acces your CEU mailbox from your computer.

Other browsers should not have the same issue. So if you use e.g. Mozilla Firefox or Safari, you do not need to use the above solution.

 

ACCESSING YOUR MAILBOX WITH AN E-MAIL CLIENT APPLICATION

To access your CEU mailbox using an e-mail client application (such as MS Outlook, MS Outlook Express, Mozilla Thunderbird, Eudora, etc.) you will need the following parameters (please note that for mobile devices we recommend using the standard IMAP settings):

WHAT IS POP3?

In computing, the Post Office Protocol (POP) is an application-layer Internet standard protocol used by local e-mail clients to retrieve e-mail from a remote server over a TCP/IP connection. POP and IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) are the two most prevalent Internet standard protocols for e-mail retrieval. Virtually all modern e-mail clients and servers support both. The POP protocol has been developed through several versions, with version 3 (POP3) being the current standard.

 

WHAT IS IMAP?

The Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP) is one of the two most prevalent Internet standard protocols for e-mail retrieval, the other being the Post Office Protocol (POP).[1] Virtually all modern e-mail clients and mail servers support both protocols as a means of transferring e-mail messages from a server, such as those used by Gmail,[2] to a client, such as Mozilla Thunderbird, KMail, Apple Mail and Microsoft Outlook.

 

WHAT IS SMTP?

Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) is an Internet standard for electronic mail (e-mail) transmission across Internet Protocol (IP) networks. SMTP was first defined in RFC 821 (STD 15),[1] and last updated by RFC 5321 (2008)[2] which includes the extended SMTP (ESMTP) additions, and is the protocol in widespread use today. SMTP is specified for outgoing mail transport and uses port 25.

While electronic mail servers and other mail transfer agents use SMTP to send and receive mail messages, user-level client mail applications typically only use SMTP for sending messages to a mail server for relaying. For receiving messages, client applications usually use either the Post Office Protocol (POP) or the Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP) to access their mail box accounts on a mail server.
