Our email service has been moved to Microsoft Outlook from Novell GroupWise! The changeover to Outlook has been done for the City of Peterborough, Peterborough Police Service, Peterborough and the Kawarthas Economic Development, Peterborough Utilities Group, and Peterborough Housing Corp.

All your inboxes, archived emails and calendar information are being transferred over to Outlook - older emails, including archives, are being pulled over to Outlook in phases, so they may not appear right away.

Microsoft Outlook, which is part of the Office 365 suite of programs, provides all the same abilities that you’re used to and opens new capabilities to enhance how we share information and work with each other.

You can watch some short online videos and see point-by-point directions on how to use the functions in Outlook.

You’ll see all the functions that you’re used to as well as a few differences, such as we’re used to doing a “Busy Search” when scheduling appointments in GroupWise while it’s called “Scheduling Assistant” in Outlook.

Keep coming back to this hub for updated information and resources. Check out the FAQs on the right side of the project page and add questions in the tool below to help us provide the information that you want.

Email is one of the main ways that we communicate and collaborate both internally and externally. Our inboxes are vital sources of information and links to the people that we work with. The associated calendar helps keep our days organized. A lot of planning and consideration has gone into this transition. Thank you for working with us through this transition.
