Often people have the same questions that have been asked many times before. This is a list of commonly asked questions and answers.
Can I use multiple names from the address book?
Yes. The address book search will display all matches for the search criteria entered in the search box. If 10 names are displayed any combination may be selected for either the To: or CC: fields. All selected addresses will be inserted into the proper field when the Use Address button is pressed.
Can I add names directly to the address book from a email?
No. At this time you cannot add names directly from a received email to the address book. You can, however, right click on the address and save it to the clipboard and paste this into the address book. Try not to be disappointed. Island Email is under continual development and this might be included in the future in one form or another.
What is webmail?
Webmail is a way to access your email online. Usually, to access our email we use an app on our phone or computer. Since this isn’t always available, it’s nice to have another option that doesn’t require setting anything up—that’s where Island Webmail comes in. Easily access your email through any compatible browser, no setup required.
Where can I use this webmail?
Any where there is a browser available.
Why use webmail instead of a regular email client?
It is doubtful that webmail will ever be a complete substitute for a regular email client. But hey, who knows? Anyway, If you ever were at a friend's house, on a trip, at home or work and away from your computer and wanted to check your mail you already know why. Because it is a huge hassle to set your mail up on their computer and then delete it again. Island Email is more of a supplement to your normal email client (i.e., Microsoft Outlook, Apple Mail, etc.,) than it is an alternative. If you’re away from your phone and computer you can still access your email without going through a whole process to set it up.
How does this stuff work?
Island Email uses the IMAP protocol. The program also uses its own IMAP functions, not those built in to PHP. This won't matter to anybody except those responsible for installing it, but trust us when we say they appreciate it.
