60.1 Using WebAccess on a Desktop Workstation

  2. Type your GroupWise user ID in the Username box and your GroupWise mailbox password in the Password box.

  3. (Optional) If you are in a secure location, select This is a private computer.

    On a private computer in a secure location, the default WebAccess timeout is 480 minutes (8 hours), which is convenient for day-long use. On a public or shared computer, the default timeout is 20 minutes, which protects your personal data. You can change these settings, as described in Section 62.2.1, Setting the Timeout Interval for Inactive Sessions.

  4. (Optional) To change the WebAccess interface language, click Options, then select the language you want from the Language drop-down list.
