Accessing Mail

Using a Web Browser Using the Toolbar Using a Client Application Forwarding Incoming Mail

Accessing Your Mail From a Web Browser Mail is web-based. This means your Mail account is actually a web site on an Mail server. With your Member ID, you can access and send email messages using a web-based Mail client from any computer with an Internet connection and a web browser.

Use the URL to communicate with the Mail server from a web-based mail client.

The supported web browsers are:

  • IE 5.5 and higher (for Windows)
  • Firefox 1.0 (for Mac and Windows)
  • Mozilla Suite 1.7
  • Netscape 7.2
  • Safari 3

The Mail client lets you read, forward, organize, and delete email messages that are stored in your mailbox, plus send email messages.
