Help Logging into OWA

1. If you are running any type of pop-up blocker, allow pop-ups for this site. If you do not allow pop-ups, the site will not work properly.

2. Click on the link in the center of the page above where it says "Click Here to Access Your WebMail".

3. Next, you will be prompted for your username and password. Please use your email addresss ( as your username.

If your current password does not work, enter your Social Security Number with no spaces as your password. Instructions for changing your password are below.

4. Once you've logged in successfully, the Outlook Web Client will appear. All of your email, folders, address books and calendar information from GroupWise will have been imported into Outlook. Your folders from Groupwise will appear when you expand (click on the + sign) the Cabinet folder. All new mail arrives in your inbox.

5. When you are finished using Outlook Webmail, be sure to log off everytime using the log off button in the upper right-hand corner of the application window and then close the browser completely.

If you do not quit your browser software, the next user at your computer may possibly be able to access your email. By closing out the browser, you will prevent this from happening.

Password Issues:

The E-mail Server will not accept passwords less than 5 (five) characters long. If you have difficulty logging in, or if you know your password is less than 5 characters long you will need to go and change your password.

On the Rowan "Change your Password Page" Your password for both email and logging into all of Rowan's network resources will be changed and synched. In the fields provided, enter your user name (not your email address - you only need to use your email address to log into OWA), your current password, the password you wish to change to, and the new password again (your new password needs to be atleast 5 characters long). Finally, hit submit and wait for the web site to confirm that your password has been changed. Now you can use the new password to log onto the Outlook Webmail system and network resources on Campus.
