Webmail

Horde Webmail is a feature-rich, customizable and versatile Webmail application. This guide will show you how to manage your mail using Horde webmail. Horde includes many useful features, particularly handy for users who need more than just basic webmail.

    The Webmail program is like the post office. If the mail has been delivered, there won't be anything at the post office. If you have email set up in Outlook or Outlook Express, that email program will "empty" the "mailbox" on a regular schedule (ie, every 10 minutes). On the other hand, if you are away from your computer and it is turned off, you can check for email messages that have collected while you were gone from another computer by accessing your Webmail page.

    Steps:

          o In your browsers window, type your webmail.domainname (e.g. http://webmail.yoursite.com/).
          o In the prompt window, enter your username and password (your username is your full email address e.g. name@yoursite.com or the portion before the @)
          o Click on LOGIN.
