The Heriot-Watt WebMail Service


The Heriot-Watt WebMail service is a very useful facility which lets you use email services via a web browser running on ANY computer anywhere in the world! Whilst full details about using the main email facility can be found here, the following is a summary of what to do to get started with HW WebMail (NB What follows assumes that you have a valid HW Email username and password - if you don't have this because you are a new student then please register with the Central IT Services).

Getting Started with the HW WebMail Service


Note: You will need to follow these steps every time that you log into WebMail. Also, make sure that you close any other mail program before running OWA (the WebMail software), or your mail box will be locked!

  1. Open the web address https://webmail.hw.ac.uk/exchange/ in your web browser.
    You will now see the Outlook Web Access login screen.

  2. Enter your Heriot-Watt username in the Username field.

  3. Enter your Heriot-Watt email password in the Password field.

  4. Click the log in button You should now be logged into OWA.

    You should ALWAYS log out of the WebMail service, don't just close your browser window.
