New messages are always available via webmail and can be accessed from any web browser.

MAIL PROGRAM ON YOUR COMPUTER

Use a mail program such as Microsoft Outlook or Mozilla Thunderbird to download your messages onto your computer.

TABLET OR SMART PHONE

Setup your email account on your smart phone or tablet and get your messages on multiple devices.


WEBMAIL

  • Your webmail account is always available at https://mail.hostedemail.com/
  • Enter your full email address and password to login.
  • Webmail is recommended if you are a computer novice, if you have a group of people using the same mailbox, or if you are unable to access your messages in the usual way.

MAIL PROGRAM ON YOUR COMPUTER

  • Use a mail program such as Microsoft Outlook or Mozilla Thunderbird to download your messages onto your computer.
  • It is recommended that you save a copy of your messages to your computer, as we can not guarantee that your saved messages and contacts will always be available on the mail server.
  • Thunderbird is a free email application that’s easy to set up and loaded with great features.

TABLET OR SMART PHONE

  • It’s easy to setup your email account on your smartphone or tablet; your device should automatically guide you through the steps.
  • If you would like to receive copies of your messages on multiple devices, choose the IMAP setting for the INCOMING mail server on each device and/or choose a combination of POP and IMAP.

What’s the difference between IMAP and POP?

  • If you would like to receive copies of your messages on multiple devices, choose the IMAP setting for the INCOMING mail server on each device. This ensures that copies of your messages will remain on each device.
  • If you would like to check your messages on your phone during the day and download all your messages to your office computer every morning, set the INCOMING mail server to IMAP on your phone and POP on your laptop. When you check the messages on your laptop, all the messages will be removed from your phone.
