Can I check my email from a library, work, or someone else's Internet connection?
Webmail works from any browser and will show any new emails that have not been downloaded to your home PC which are sitting on our server. Webmail is also handy to delete any huge emails you don't want to download.
I need to travel to another city. How do I connect when I am away?
We also have a 2 city plan available for users with locations in 2 cities, (i.e. summer and winter homes).
If you are a Premium/Professional customer ($15.99/mo) we have free local dialup numbers in most big cities plus you receive 30 minutes of toll-free access time for free each month. (You are still notified daily by email, but the 30 free toll-free minutes are deducted at the end of the month before any fees are posted to your account). Premium accounts have a 6 month contract term. (You may not upgrade for a single trip).
To connect in another city you must attach the realm name "@usf-b.net" to your username. Your password will stay the same. Follow these steps to use our access numbers outside of Minnesota. Be careful! We are not responsible for any long distance fees you incur accidentally or for any for any other reason.
BE CAREFUL, Watch what numbers are being dialed, as we are not responsible to any long distance fees you incur because you accidentally set your computer to dial a long distance number, even if you think we, for some reason, told you to do so. If you are unsure if a specific access number will be a long distance call for you, contact your local phone company.
