It is possible to use both your normal email client, such as Outlook, Outlook express or Thunderbird at the same time as you use webmail+. But the following notes should be read carefully:
You can use webmail+ at any time to send mail even if you are using your home or office PC to read mail.
webmail+ reads mail stored on our server. Normally your email client when it reads mail copies the mail to your local PC and deletes it from our server. This mail cannot be read using webmail+ it is only available on your local PC.
If you are travelling or out of the office and whish to use webmail+ to both send and receive mail you should ensure that your home PC is either switched off or is not running your mail client program.
webmail+ contains a multi-lingual spellchecker facility. Currently only English, French (Français) and Spanish dictionaries are installed - additional languages can be installed by request. To set the default language used by the spellchecker proceed as follows:
Select Options->SpellCheck Options
On the new screen click set up international dictionaries
On the new screen check the required language. If more than one language is selected then a drop down box of the checked languages is displayed when the spellchecker is invoked for each message. If only a single language is selected no choice is provided.
Select the required Make this dictionary my default selection: language as appropriate.
Click the Make these changes button.
When you delete mail in any folder (except Trash - see below) webmail+ moves it to the Trash folder from where it may be moved back into any suitable folder.
Note: To ensure that the Trash folder does not grow too big ZYTRAX will periodically delete all but the last 10 mails on a regular basis.

Login to WebMail+
