Hello Suzan,

Thanks for the question about adding a shortcut to your iPhone or to your computer desktop. First, it's really not an easy thing to just add a website shortcut on the iPhone UNLESS you use the option within Safari. You can see how to do that by looking at these instructions. Basically, it lets you save a page directly to the iOS screen. The page will always be a login screen AND you must have Javascript enabled (Settings>Safari>Advanced>Javascript - You have turn slider on). Before you save it, you would need to designate your default webmail application. This is done when you log in to webmail and then click on your login username in the top right corner and then select a default webmail application out of the three available.

If you're not using an iPhone, then you should see this post, though it includes directions for both types. As with the iPhone, you will need to make sure that Javascript is allowed for the page.

As for the desktop shortcut, it depends on your operating system. In Windows, you can right-click and create the shortcut by using the URL to Webmail. In Mac OSX (I tried this on the newest OS - Mojave), you need to left-click on the left portion of the address bar, hold it down and then drag to your screen. You will need to make sure that you can see the desktop background and the URL in the browser.

You can also setup and download the Squirrelmail desktop application. You would have to configure to use your mail server settings. You can find the mail configuration settings by logging into webmail, then clicking on your login name in the top right corner and clicking on Configure Mail Client.

Sorry, it's not a straightforward answer - I know you mentioned you're new at this. However, check out the options and let us know if you have any questions.

Kindest regards,
Arnel C.

When configuring, what should I put in the 'reply to' box, below the email address?

This is an optional parameter. By default an email client will the "From" address for replies. This field allows you to set a custom email address that will receive replies.

Hello Ani,

Squirrelmail is one mail client that you can use. You're not restricted to using only the one. All of them have the same limitations as they are based on the actual account. For more information, please read Email Marketing 101.

If you have any further questions or comments, please let us know.

On the laptop try clearing your browser cache, or test with a different browser (such as FireFox, Chrome, Opera, Safari, etc.)

Thank you,

I cannot acess my email 

It will not recognise password

For a long time now I have only been able to access it by using internet explorer in which my old password was saved

Now I have lost this as well

It would never open in Chrome or Firefox etc

Are you getting a specific error message? Also, if it works on other devices it sounds as if it's an issue with the laptop itself.

There is no message appearing, the login page reloads all over again. There is not even an error message.

Try clearing the cache and cookies on all browsers having the issue. If it is still occurring, contact the Live Support so they can view the live server log as you attempt to log in to see if there is any specific error message that is detected.

You should be able to add the additional emails to the "cc" (carbon copy) or "bcc" (blind carbon copy) fields.
