Staff Email

The GCU email system is called Outlook Web App. It provides the same level of functionality on Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer and the interface is designed to be useable on a device with a touch screen. The functionality on the Safari browser is also improved.

The host name used to connect to the Outlook Web App has also been updated to https://mail.gcu.ac.uk, but https://mail.gcal.ac.uk, and any existing links or bookmarks you use to access the service, will continue to work.

We have introduced Outlook Anywhere, which means you can use email using Outlook from a machine outside the university’s network (foe example working from a university laptop off campus) without a VPN connection. You can find more information here.

Training

A training package on Outlook Web App is available on Lynda.com. When you click the link you will be redirected to the GCU login page where you will be prompted for your university username and password. Once you enter this information you will be taken to the Outlook Web App (2013) Essential Training course.
