New Webmail Is Here

Webmail is getting a make-over. The web-based email program that lets you check mail anywhere on or off campus with a web browser has been beefed up, slicked down, and filled with more of the convenient, easy-to-use features you expect from a standard email program. You can now sort messages into folders, save sent messages, even create anti-spam filters. You don't have to sign up or reconfigure anything. All you have to do to get these new features is log in.

People who use IMAP-based Webmail already know how to use these features. The rest of us, accustomed to the streamlined feature set of POP-based (or "Regular") Webmail, now get to use these features too. Because Stanford Webmail has been simplified so there's only one, full-featured interface, you can either use Webmail exactly as you did before, or choose to explore all its exciting new features.
