Upgrade of HKU Webmail System

We are pleased to inform our users that the HKU Webmail System has been successfully upgraded from IMP to Roundcube on September 24, 2013.

With this upgrade, the security protection of this webmail system has been stepped up to mitigate the risk of security breaches.  Apart from the updated webpage at https://webmail.hku.hk, users having their accounts on the email servers HKUCC, HKUSUC and graduate.hku.hk are now using a completely new interface offered by Roundcube with enhanced features, such as drag-and-drop and support html and Unicode.    

The startup guide of the new webmail system can be found at http://www.its.hku.hk/documentation/guide/email/rcwebmail/startup-guide.  For the detailed user guide, please see http://www.its.hku.hk/documentation/guide/email/rcwebmail.

Should you have any questions in using the new webmail system, please feel free to contact the undersigned or our Helpdesk at ithelp@hku.hk or 2859 2480.
