New employees are given a GroupWise email account. The default user name and password will be the same as the HSC NetID/Novell Account. Although the defaults are the same, these two accounts are two separate resources. Changing the password in one, for example, does not change it in both systems unless they are changed at http://mypw.health.unm.edu. This site will synchronize the passwords to be the same.
The email address format is Username@salud.unm.edu Email accounts are active until users leave the institution.
