Chapter 2. Sending Mail > Using Webmail

Using Webmail

Using an e-mail client (such as Mail or Entourage) isn't the only way to access your .Mac e-mail account. Your .Mac account comes with a full featured Web-based e-mail client that lets you send and receive e-mail, organize your e-mail, and even use the addresses stored in Mac OS X's Address Book—and you can do it from anywhere that you have access to a Web browser.

To open .Mac Webmail

1.
Open your Web browser and go to http://webmail.mac.com.

The .Mac login page loads.

2.
In the Member Name field, type your .Mac member name.

3.
In the Password field, type your .Mac password (Figure 2.20).

Figure 2.20. You'll be seeing a lot of this page. This is the .Mac login page, and you'll use it to enter your .Mac member name and password to access the members' area of the .Mac Web site.


4.
Click Enter.

The Web interface for your .Mac e-mail account opens (Figure 2.21). This interface looks and behaves a lot like ane-mail client, and if you've ever used a Web interface for other e-mail accounts, you'll probably feel right at home. The interface features a toolbar across the top, a message count and search field, a list of messages, and a message count at the bottom—everything you need to work with your e-mail.

Figure 2.21. The main .Mac Web e-mail interface looks and behaves a lot like an application-based e-mail program. Icons across the top act like buttons in a program, causing actions to happen. E-mail messages are listed below the buttons.
