Using SmarterBroadband's 1&1 WebMail
WebMail is SmarterBroadband's 1&1 Internet-based mail system, which you can use to read and write e-mail from anywhere and makes a local mail program redundant. If you access you e-mail account via WebMail, you keep your e-mail messages on the mail server.
SmarterBroadband's 1&1 WebMail communication is protected by Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption.
Only an e-mail address set up as a mailbox can be accessed through WebMail.
WebMail is especially useful when you are traveling. With this tool, you can access your e-mail from anywhere on the Internet.
Call up WebMail under https://webmail.1and1.com.
Log on using your e-mail address and its mailbox password. This opens the mailbox that belongs to that e-mail address.
Check Your E-mail Inbox
In the left navigation bar or on the WebMail Overview page, choose 'E-mail Inbox' and Select the e-mail you would like to read, answer, or delete.
You cannot view or modify e-mail in WebMail which you have previously downloaded with a local mail program.
Write and Send an E-mail
In the left navigation bar or on the WebMail Overview page choose 'Write E-mail' .
When attaching files, remember that outgoing e-mail messages may not exceed 5 MB.
SmarterBroadband’s 1&1 WebMail can only receive e-mail messages with attachments of 1 MB or smaller in size. If you would like to receive e-mail with larger attachments, we recommend you use an e-mail client, such as Microsoft ® Outlook Express ® .
Send an E-mail to Multiple Addresses
To send e-mail to multiple addresses simultaneously type the addresses in the "To" field.
Make sure to separate them with a comma or a semicolon (it does not matter whether you leave a blank space or not).
For example, To: email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org.
E-mail Signature in WebMail
To set up or change a signature, in the left navigation bar on the WebMail Overview page choose 'Change Signature' . Insert your signature in the text field.
WebMail Address Book
To manage the address book in WebMail select 'Manage Address Book' from the left navigation bar on the WebMail Overview page. In the "New Contact" window enter the person's name and in the "E-mail Address" field enter the e-mail address. Repeat the process for each address you would like to add.
It is not possible to import the addresses from local mail programs into WebMail.
Addresses you would like to include have to be added manually.
For security reasons, always click on 'Log out' to exit your WebMail session.
