Webmail

The access to Uni Bonn E-Mails from every Internet browser

General information

Webmail enables you to access your e-mails from every computer, regardless of the operating system and without installing and configuring a local e-mail client. You can access all information (even your calendar) by opening https://mail.uni-bonn.de from any webbrowser.

Currently the following layouts are available for Webmail:

  • Basic
  • Crystal
  • mCrystal
  • Pronto
  • Viewpoint (standard interface)

Even if Viewpoint is set up by default, all layouts are being supported equally, so that every user has a choice based on personal preferences.

The choice can be made once on the sign-in screen or be changed in the settings of Webmail.
