netMail is a free, web-based, email client provided by Internet Connection for use by it's customers. It offers anyone with an email account on the Internet Connection network the ability to access their email from any computer with a web browser and internet access.
netMail enables you to check your email, compose email messages, and do everything else you can do with your normal email client, all through an efficient and user-friendly web-based interface. And because it utilizes the IMAP protocol, it can be used with other IMAP-enabled email clients to provide you with access to the same email messages and email folders as the ones you access from your desktop client.
Although netMail works well with desktop email software configured to use the POP email protocol, if you plan on using it regularly, you should probably configure your desktop email client to use the IMAP protocol. Doing this ensures seamless integration between netMail and your other email program. For instructions on this, please see the IC Tech. Ref. Document Configuring your email client for IMAP.
