Our web-based email program called Openwebmail (a replacement for Neomail) which can be accessed via a browser http://mail.eis.net.au or for our Web Hosting clients type www.yourdomainname.com.au/webmail is proving to be a great success.
There are many benefits for using Webmail as we have detailed below:
- You are free to read emails from computers other than your own computer ie, work, internet cafes, on holidays, etc.
- Webmail gives you the option of checking and deleting your emails without actually downloading them into your mail program-this is beneficial, specifically where problems like computer viruses are concerned.
- If you are having trouble downloading your emails with your email program, log onto Webmail and check to see that you haven't got a particularly large email clogging your mailbox. This allows you to delete the problem email without trying to wait for it to download on your computer.
