To setup email you need one of the following
programs on your computer. One of the Microsoft products is probably on your system
already. On Windows 98 or newer Windows 95 systems you should have Outlook Express. Older Windows 95 systems
should have Internet Mail. Just look under
Start and Programs to see which you one you have. If you have neither use the
downloadable Eudora below or just try Web Mail and setup email
later. While Outlook Express is preferred, try to
avoid Outlook or Exchange as they are bigger, so complicated and prone to breaking that we
cannot help you with them.
Mail purge: Mail is normally deleted immediately off our server when you access your
mailbox from your PC. Undeleted mail is automatically purged from our servers after
20 days. Webmail therefore has a max life of 20 days.
Web Mail - This is the simplest
possible email and is useable anywhere with no setup!!! Your
email in Webmail disappears after a maximum of 20 days or if you download your mail onto
your computer with another email program.
Webmail is primarily used by beginners and travelers.
It is also great for deleting a huge email you don't want to download to your PC.
