In order to give our customers more options with email, Hevanet has
installed and set up a Web-based email interface. Now you can check
your Hevanet email from any browser anywhere in the world. All you need
is a connection to the Internet. A friend's computer, an Internet Cafe
or the Public Library are all possibilities. You can delete messages you
don't want (great for getting rid of spam or large file attachments!),
reply to current messages or even compose and send entirely new messages.
This easy to use program offers our customers an easy way to keep up
with their email, no matter where they are. Here are a few tips to help
you get started. Please read the following. There are important limitations
to the WebMail program.
WebMail is primarily designed for checking
your email from remote locations. It is not meant to replace your normal
email program. If you need help configuring your email program, see our
If you are trying this out on your main computer, be sure any other email
programs (Outlook Express, Eudora, etc.) are closed. It's not a good idea
to have two programs accessing your mailbox at the same time.
To access your email account, you will need your Hevanet username (or
login name) and your password.
If you are using a browser in a public place, (library, Internet Cafe),
be sure to check the option "Don't cache output" and Logout
when finished. Otherwise, someone else could have access to your email.
Be patient. Since the program has to do a lot of things to display your
email messages, it sometimes takes a few moments for the display.
Unlike other Web-based email services (HotMail, Yahoo), this program does
not have extras such as Folders and Address Books. You will not be able
to save copies of mail you send (unless you CC to yourself). WebMail is
designed as a quick and flexible way to access your Hevanet email from
If you wish to have a copy of e-mails you send via WebMail, put your own
address in the CC: field.
You may get a "Server Error" if you try to display a message that has a
large file attachment (over 2 MB). There is no harm to your Email and nothing
will be lost. Because of the size of the message, the program cannot display
it. You can still delete the message if you wish.
