New Employee Email

On Friday, September 13, 2013, at 4:00 PM, ECC's employee email system will be moving from GroupWise to Gmail.

What does this mean?

  • You’ll begin to receive all new email in Gmail by 5 p.m. on Friday.
  • Your mailbox may not be completely current until Monday morning. If you think something is missing, do not panic!
  • All email dating back to January 1, 2003 will be moved to your new Gmail account. Any e-mails older than that will not come over.
  • Your address book (contacts), cabinet, folders, etc. will be moved to your new Gmail account.
  • You will not lose access to GroupWise, but you will not receive any new mail there.
  • Your email address (user@edgecombe.edu) will not change.

How do I login to my new Gmail account?

  • Go to: gmail.edgecombe.edu.  (You may want to memorize this address.)
  • Enter your username only.  (Ex. employee Thomas Jefferson would enter jeffersont.)
  • Enter the new password that you use for your PC, Datatel WebAdvisor, Moodle, EdgeID, etc.

How do I login to my old GroupWise account?

  • Go to: gw.edgecombe.edu.  (You may want to memorize this address.)
  • Enter your username.
  • Enter your old password that you used for GroupWise.
  • You can also find the link to GroupWise on the Faculty & Staff page of the website.  It will remain here as long as the GroupWise server remains active.

Will this page be here forever?

  • No.  Eventually, when you click on the employee email logo on the college website, you will be carried directly to the Gmail login page.

What if I have problems?
