Using Webmail 2003
- In your web browser, enter https://webmail.ur.rochester.edu/. Note that in the URL it is https, not http.
- A window will appear to prompt you for your username and password. Remember to include ur\ before your username and that your password is case-sensitive.
- Click the Log On button and you're in!
Click the Log Off button on the left side of the window. You will be returned to the login window.
It is not necessary to close the window or exit the browser, your mailbox cannot be accessed without logging in again.
Hiding Mail Sub-Folders
By default, webmail displays all the sub-folders within the current folder. If you have many folders within your Inbox, this can leave little room for displaying the list of messages. Fortunately, you can hide this list of sub-folders.
To the left of where your name and Inbox is display is a small box with a minus symbol inside it. Click that box and the sub-folders are hidden. To display them, click the small box again (which now has a plus symbol inside).
The site will remember that you hid the sub-folder list so you don't have to repeat this every time you use webmail.
Saving New Appointments
When you're adding an appointment to only your own calendar, not inviting others, how you save the appointment is not immediately obvious. Don't click the Send button -- that's only for appointment invites. Instead, click the Save button with the floppy disk icon.
