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
• View items in your GroupWise mailbox and other folders, including shared folders
• View, delete, reply and forward messages
• Move items between folders
• Attached documents are viewable through the GroupWise document converter, or they can be downloaded to view with other apps on your device

• Compose new email, appointments, tasks and notes
• Add attachments to new emails
• Search your GroupWise address books to select contacts when composing an email

View calendar events
• View your GroupWise calendar with one tap in either day, week or month view
• View an item's properties to see if an appointment has been accepted, an email has been viewed, etc.
• Accept or decline appointments, tasks and notes

View contacts
• Easily search all of your GroupWise address books including Frequent Contacts and your GroupWise System Address Book
• View a contact's details including phone number, email address and physical address
• One tap to use your iPhone to call a contact
• Email a contact using GW Mailbox or the iOS Mail app
• Create an appointment for a contact

New, advanced email notifications
• Better security
• Control how often mailbox is checked
• Banner notifications

Search in your folders
• Search in any of your GroupWise folders

Notice: GW Mailbox uses GroupWise WebAccess to get your email data. If your GroupWise administrator has not made GroupWise WebAccess available to you, GW Mailbox will not work for you. We support Novell Access Manager. But if your company uses a different proxy server, then GW Mailbox will not work. GW Mailbox requires an active internet connection.

iOS: This app requires iOS 9 or later.
Devices: GW Mailbox works with your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad, and requires an internet connection to work.
GroupWise: GW Mailbox has been tested to work with GroupWise 2014 R2, GroupWise 2014, GroupWise 2012, GroupWise 8, GroupWise 7 and GroupWise 6.5.

Loving the access to work emails!

There's gotta be a better option  Mere E in TX  1 star

I use this for work for its encryption. It regularly prompts a message regarding attachments that is random and seems to make it fail to load. It is slow and buggy. Not a fan!

Peds Orthopedic Doc

Great group wise emulator  Peds Orthopedic Doc  4 star

This app recreates GroupWise on your iPhone. Even filing emails is simple. One issue of concern: I haven't figured out how to add attachments.


Slow  mamagoose78  2 star

Really slow delivery and receipt of emails.


Review  COOK$EY  1 star

The notifications don't show when a email is received. The app logs you out every you leave the app. You have to close the app and re-enter it.


Good app for the price  iBarsHD  4 star

Only knock I have is it could be more user friendly.

Snake Dr

Great customer service  Snake Dr  5 star

I purchased the app in the morning and it was working fine. By the evening, my work IT had changed something and the app wouldn't work. I emailed Ghost Pattern about the issue and received some advice to try and trouble shoot the problem. Trouble shooting didn't work. Ghost Pattern, without me asking or knowing, contacted my work IT and resolved the issue. I received an email advising me they had contacted my work IT and the app should now work. Low and behold… issue solved. Great customer service.

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.

Good...But could be great  Dr. Johnny Rey  1 star

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


Needs a search function  ChipnDale01  3 star

Hi Not a bad app, but it needs a simple search function! I sent someone an email a couple of days ago and now I can't find it. Be great if I could search by Subject or Recipient! Thanks


What a load of sh1te!  David.Powell  1 star

Been using this app as a third party interface for the past year. Tried to renew my subscription for 1 month as we're about to move to Outlook. App Store happy to take my money but no service. Funnily enough, App all of a sudden can't connect to server!

Luke bby💕

Great app  Luke bby💕  5 star

We use group wise for school emails and i get a lot of emails on my school email. This app is great because I can see all my emails on my phone without having to open the internet, and log in. 👍


My subscription  Bdjfkendjjs  1 star

I don't know if it is a bug or what, but i recently bought a one year subscription and i was really loving the app, but today it asked me to update something for some reason and i now no longer have my subscription, and every time i try to restore it, the app says that my receipt is invalid. PLEASE FIX!!!!!!!


I don't get it!  DarthGouki  1 star

I paid full price for your previous GW version, now I need to pay again and as a annual subscription!! U are joking.


Works well for my use  Lklhs  4 star

I was frustrated when I had to pay for the app that used to be free. However this version includes calendar and contacts which had to be purchased separately prior to this version. I use basically just for email.y folders and contacts are accessible. Contacts search is a bit clumsy. Not as easy as online. But it gets the job done and allows me to keep up to date with my school email.


Love this app!  Lya!!!  5 star

This app is quick and convenient to use. Quick to open, easy to navigate, simple to use.


Works great  Smpvt  5 star

Use it everyday for my job works great.....Needs to have update for attachments if I'm going to continue to pay for it

Calendar Probs

Calendar crashes  Calendar Probs  2 star

It's alright for the mail portion of the app, but every time I try and open up my calendar the app crashes!!


Great app  TBABY1964  5 star

Better than than the other GW Mail app.


Love this app!  Mishabgs  5 star

This app changed my work life for the better. Can get my mail whenever I want. Quick to reload. Note that if you want the meeting reminder you have to set that in your notifications on your PC to text you. This app doesn't do that but that works so no complaints. Well worth the $$ I pay for it.


Responsive Support  stram2  2 star

App works nicely. Had one issue and was corrected in less than 24 hours by support.


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.
