Using Webmail client

The new Gdańsk Tech service is available via web browsers at the address, integrating access to several services, including Gdańsk Tech Webmail and Gdańsk Tech calendars.

The Gdańsk Tech e-mail service can also be used "traditionally" by programs such as email clients (e.g. Mozilla Thunderbird, Outlook etc. – it is necessary to configure them), installed in computer operating systems.

The following illustration shows the appearance of the new Gdańsk Tech Webmail interface – as soon as you log in. In every modern web browser, i.e. Mozilla Firefox, Chrome, Opera (older versions of IE may not work, because they do not support the majority of current technical standards) the interface will look almost identical. The ability to handle e-mail through the browser ensures the comprehensive availability of Gdańsk Tech mail, regardless of your operating system or installed applications.

You can easily customize the interface to your individual needs. You can choose the view shown in the above illustration, as well as the horizontal and vertical view, see the two following illustrations.

View settings are available in the menu to which the shortcut is located in the upper right corner of the screen under the name View.

To create a new message, click on the option Compose, as in the figure below.

The window for creating a new message is similar to analogous windows in other e-mail programs:

In Webmail you can mark messages as important. This is done by assigning a colour to the message. The illustration below shows the possible colours to choose.

To ensure the comfort of sending e-mails, the new Gdańsk Tech e-mail system uses the global address book (read from the so-called LDAP PG directory). The address book contains e-mail addresses of all employees of the Gdańsk University of Technology. When creating a new message, answering or redirecting messages, all you have to do is enter only the fragment of the name, address or name of the intended recipient in the To field. This will display a list of hints from which to select the correct recipient.

All e-mail addresses saved in the address book are available after entering the Adress Book option. The addresses are sorted alphabetically. Details of the contact are available after moving the mouse over it and clicking on the desired position.

Access to the settings of the new Gdańsk Tech mail is possible after clicking the gear icon, located in the upper right corner of the screen. 


Careful consideration is recommended when making changes to the system settings. If you are not sure about the correctness of the change, we encourage you to contact the Gdańsk Tech Helpdesk.

In the Basic settings section you can change, among others interface language, time zone settings, refresh time, default application after logging in, set automatic logout from the system when the browser window is closed.

The only field where you can intentionally make changes is in the field Your first and last name.


We strongly advise you not to make any changes to the other fields!

The portal is a place in Webmail to place shortcuts (so-called widgets) giving quick access to individual mail application programs, as well as to important messages (e.g. to a message you often return to) or directly to your inbox. The portal settings view is shown in the screenshot below.

Settings regarding e-mails: their creation, deletion, formatting, etc.


Detailed instructions on mail settings and other options are available at or directly from the new PG mail interface after clicking the question mark icon – located in the upper right corner of the screen.

Particularly noteworthy in the mail settings is the absence notification option (e.g. being on vacations):

By completing the fields indicated in the above figure with a red frame, you can activate the leave notification. By choosing Choose advanced options you can select the appropriate account (one, several or all available) from the list of e-mail accounts.

Filter rules is another important aspect.

The Add new rule button allows you to create rules for organizing incoming mail as well as existing ones in the inbox of messages.
The first step is to define the conditions that must be met to trigger the rule you are creating.

Next, determine what the system should do with a message that meets certain conditions:

To save the settings, click the Save button at the bottom of the window.

The penultimate setting is to define the content of the signature automatically attached to messages coming from your e-mail account. There is a text editor at your disposal that you can use to create or edit existing signature content.

The final setting is the Address Book option. Its configuration is shown in the figure below:

After clicking on the My contact data button, a window will appear that allows you to supplement or change the contact details of the currently logged in user.
