Introduction
Resolution Steps

 

  • Web based e-mail shows messages that are currently in your mailbox on our server; here, you can view, delete, reply to and compose messages

  • This does not impact an email program installed on your computer using the Post Office Protocol (POP) in any way

  • For example: When using Outlook to check your mail using POP, you are actually transferring the messages in your mailbox on the server to your local/home machine

  • After transferring these messages, they are often no longer on the server and cannot be viewed using web mail

  • If you would like to see your messages on web mail -and- be able to view them from your home computer, set your home computer to use the IMAP server or "leave messages on server"
    • Note: If you compose messages or replies from your home email program with POP, these will not display via web mail since they are not on the server.
