Exchange (Email, Calender, Contacts)

The Geisenheim University IT center runs a Microsoft Exchange Server as a groupware solution for the staff and lecturers of Geisenheim University. This includes email boxes as well as common calendar functions and a university-wide address book.

Important information is often sent via email, so we strongly recommend that you check the email account regularly.

To use this service you’ll require an activated HSGM-Account.

In order to take advantage of all functions we recommend the use of an up-to-date Microsoft Outlook version.


How can I access my emails ?

Webmail (Outlook Web App)

The simplest way to access your email account is via Webmail. Using a browser (MS Internet Explore, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, etc.) go to the following page:

This opens the log-in page of the Outlook Web App. Here you can log-in using your HSGM-Account. The Outlook Web App allows you to retrieve incoming emails, organize your contacts and appointments and write emails with your student email address as sender address.


Email-Client (PC, Smartphone)

The email account can also be accessed using standard mail clients (MS Outlook, Apple Mail, Mozilla Thunderbird etc.). The following protocols are supported:
