Mattermost is a chat system you can use in any web browser, or with apps on your computer or mobile phone. It is an additional service of GitLab, and integrates nicely with your groups and projects there. If you are not online when someone mentions your name, you will get notified by E-Mail. Like the GitLab service, Mattermost is hosted here on-premises at the Radboud University.
There is no pre-defined limit how many past messages you can read (e.g. unlike Slack.com's free plan, with which you can only read your 10k most recent ones).
