GW Mailbox

Note: GW Mailbox requires a subscription

GW Mailbox is a GroupWise email and calendar app for the iPhone and iPad. With this app you get a much better interface than Novell delivers by default through GroupWise WebAccess. This app gives you some of the enterprise features that you wouldn't get with simple POP/IMAP - like access to your Frequent Contacts and GroupWise address book.

This app is designed to work with a Novell GroupWise email server. Novell GroupWise is an email server like Lotus Notes or Microsoft Exchange. If you do not have access to a Novell GroupWise email account, this app will not work for you. Your IT department should be able to provide you with the URL to your company's GroupWise WebAccess server.

Key Features:
• Combined email, calendar and contacts access all in one app
• Uses iOS background processing to provide faster, more secure notifications

View emails

GW Mailbox Reviews


Kathy McNamara  Hot12345  3 star

Often can not respond to an email if the full email address vs The sender's name is not reflected in the address bar. Hassle to retype. Words I'd use to describe are ...clunky & slow.


The Mimimum  H20gurl9169  3 star

This app does what it should. If you're stuck using GroupWise, you're aware of it's many limitations. This app's functionality is reflective of those limitations.

Jonathan 2.0.1

Good...But could be great  Jonathan 2.0.1  4 star

Love the simple interface. Only complaint... I never receive notifications.


Groupwise email  OlafFinn  4 star

The app works great. Nice to have access to the calendar. Needs to have a push function like a pop3 email does--it only fetches.


Does not have full functionality  ChuckGS.  1 star

While I receive mail with this app, I'm unable to open any attachment. Can't grab my work schedule because of this and makes my yearly paid subscription useless.


Groupwise  Crazytough  4 star

This is a good app. It is the best option for groupwise users who want to access their email live with iphone. Obviously there is room to improve but it is the best option out there now.


Gw  Dhogan215  2 star

Calendar appointments do not alert. Inserting photos in email is cumbersome and limited. Wish they would improve and update the application.


Worst App Ever  oluallday  1 star

This is the worst app I've ever used. I'm a college student, and I use this for my school email. I paid the $9 for the year subscription because I obviously need it for every day use. Half the time it won't connect you to the mailbox, it will only display the "loading" icon. You have to have the app running in the background in order for it to send you notifications, which aside from being a huge flaw in its own right, seriously drains my phone's battery. It won't let you search your address book and it's unnecessary complicated to simply reply to messages. Do not buy this app.


Why does my company use groupwise  Katiebug390  1 star

Honestly the worst. This app and Groupwise period are basically outdated by a decade. Neither is user friendly. For example, why can't I see my calendar in the next month when using the app? Or why is it so hard for this app to search through my emails or contacts? Or why do I have to pay to use this horrible app?


Terrible - both App & desktop versions  sdmill9  1 star

Awful, cumbersome, not intuitive. If it were not for my organization requiring me to use this application, Groupwise would find itself in the trash-bin. :(


GW Mail  Huskyluvr  2 star

You have to pay for this app and it doesn't work most of the time. At times, it will fail to notify you that you have mail. I have adjusted the setting and it will still fail to notify me. There are other times that it will flash up the notification but does not use alert tones. I have the app for gmail that is free and it works better than this paid app.


Awesome  Miria1134  4 star

Great app, wish it was free bc it's my work email :/


Great App - Especially for an Adjunct Professor  Ltown003  4 star

I have used this during my tenure as an Adjunct Professor and it has kept me in touch while perform on my normal day to day duties away from campus. This is a good investment.


Mediocre  bnimph  3 star

I have consistent trouble with viewing emails especially ones with any graphics in them. This app doesn't include certain features and accessibility found in the general Web application. For instance you can not forward or reply to a sent message. It's got decent functionality but for $10 I want something better.

Damned Frustrated

GroupWise  Damned Frustrated  1 star

Poor step child as compared to Outlook. Appt reminders show organizer rather than subject. Incompatible with iPhone. Frequent downtime. Also this review fails if reviewer's nickname is taken causing reviewer to resubmit. Would not recommend.


Great app.  dilekanddave  5 star

Love it. Saves me at work!

Steven Bishop

Groupwise on the go  Steven Bishop  5 star

In general, works well with all pieces of functionality. Occasionally will seize up for no apparent reason but goes back to normal simply by shutting down app and restarting. Annoying but only takes a few seconds. So so so much better than any other solution. Good value.

General Woo

Crash.  General Woo  1 star

All it does today is crash. Usually pretty good app but until it is fixed, it gets 1 star


Love this app!  Frenchy719  5 star

This app saves me so much time. Being able to access my work mail at the touch of a button, is invaluable. I especially like being able to respond to letters after I leave work.


Great for school or business  Megsieliz  5 star

I'm currently in nursing school and this is the email the school uses for staff and students. With this app I always get updates instantly and get quicker responses from my instructors and classmates. I recommend this app to anyone using a group wise email
