Getting Started with Webmail
What is Webmail?
Webmail is a web-based messaging tool that allows you to access and manage
e-mail across the Internet. You can use Webmail with most Web browsers.
You will use your University Directory ID and Directory Password to log
in to view, compose, respond to, and manage e-mail in your Mail@umd account.
You can log into Webmail at www.mail.umd.edu.
This tutorial looks at the Webmail tools and strategies you can use for reading, writing, managing, and streamlining communication via electronic mail. The links to the left will take you to four self-paced training modules that can be printed or viewed while accessing Webmail in the second, separate browser window.
Modifying the Webmail Environment
For the purposes of this Quick Start tutorial, we will be referencing Webmail functions and tools as they appear in the Frames mode.
Ending a Webmail Session
When you have completed an e-mail session it is important that you remember to click the Logout link in the Links menu. Be aware that closing the browser window (clicking the Close icon in the upper right corner) does not close the connection to the mail server and will not log you out. It is important to close the connection to your account when you are finished by logging out to prevent unnecessary process loads and possible security risks. Once the session is terminated, you are returned to the Webmail login page.
