Q:  How do I report a bug or make a feature request?

A:  Send a support email through the app.  Tap on the menu button, then the about button and then the support button.  Make sure you are specific about the issue.  “It doesn’t work” or “It crashed” is not enough information to be helpful.  If you are reporting a crash or exception, please send a log.

Q:  How does the app get information from GroupWise?

A:  The app talks directly to your company’s GroupWise WebAccess server as if you were logging in to it from a browser.

Q: Is this app secure?

A: We do our best to make it secure. 

  1. -Your password is stored encrypted on your device.

  2. -The app communicates directly through the internet to your GroupWise WebAccess server.  Information is never passed through a third party server.

  3. -You should passcode lock your device so that people can not easily open the app and get access to your email.

  4. -Make sure that the URL setting in the app is https, or the communication to the server will be insecure.
