GryphMail is the University of Guelph’s official email address, contacts, tasks, and calendar system. All faculty, staff, and students are given a Gryph Mail email address. New students receive their email addresses in their registration package. To log into your account, you will need your Gryph Mail UserID and password.
The Microsoft Office 365 email system provides UofG users with greater storage capacity, simpler mobile compatibility, better security, and improved collaboration, among other benefits.

How to set up GryphMail on your iphone
To put GryphMail on your iPhone device, follow the instructions below.
- In your iPhone, go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendar > Add account. Set up a new mail account, selecting Exchange.
- Enter your email address (e.g., “userID@uoguelph.ca”) in the Email box and the same email address in the Username box. Leave the Domain box blank.
- Enter your password in the Password box.
- Enter the correct mail server name in the Server box. To find out which server you’ll be using, log in to the GryphMail web client and check the URL. The server name is the first part of the URL. For example, zcs1.mail.uoguelph.ca. Now put that server name into the Server box.

- Now tap the home button and go into Mail. You should see your new account appear, and it should show your folders and email messages within a few moments.

- Once you’re sure email is working, go back into the Exchange Account Settings tab (shown above) and tap Contacts to “ON.”
- The iPhone will warn you about deleting your existing entries. If you’re sure, tap “Sync.”
