Webmail

LMi’s webmail interface is the ideal way to access your email account when you are not at your own computer, or when you do not wish to set up an account using email client software.

You can access it from any internet-connected web broswer at https://webmail.lmi.net. Note that this is a secure connection, so your password is encrypted before being sent.

Once connected, type in your email address and password. (if you use an lmi.net email address, you can just type in the username. i.e. for “joe@lmi.net”, username = joe).

Keep in mind that when accessing webmail, you will only see the email that is currently on the server. Email that you previously downloaded to your computer may not still be available on the server.

We have chosen SquirrelMail for our webmail interface. This provides an advanced feature set while remaining very fast at handling large mailboxes. If you need it, there is on-line documentation available- just click the “Help” link at the top of the page.

In addition, here are some common questions and answers:

  • How do I setup a vacation message?

    4. The Address Book has 5 fields in each record, in the order you see listed.

    3. Click the “Less..” button right below.. This will leave just one condition for all messages.
    4. In the Action section below, click “Redirect to the following email address, and type in the address to forward to.
    5. Click “Add new rule” at the bottom of the page to save the filter.

    Does Webmail display HTML mail?

    No. SquirrelMail is designed with speed in mind. All embedded graphics in an email will be shown as links to the original location.

    How can I change the return address of my outgoing mail?

    1. Click the Options link at the top of the page.
    2. Click the Personal Information link.
    3. Fill in the fields for your primary identity, and save the changes.
    4. Click the Edit Advanced Identities link to create additional identities. When you compose a message, you can then select which identity you are sending from.

    How can I see the size of a message in my inbox?

    1. Click the Options link at the top of the page.
    2. Click the Index Order link.
    3. You will see “Size” in a pull-down menu. Click Add.

    How can I automatically filter spam into a separate folder?

    1. Click the Filters link at the top of the page.
    2. Click the “Add a New Rule” button.
    3. Click in the 2nd column pull down menu in the first condition.
      It says “To: or Cc”- change this to “X-Spam-Status”.
    4. In the empty field on the right. type “Yes”.
      The rule should read “Header : X-Spam-Status : contains : Yes”
    5. Below, in the Action section, click the “Move message into” button. You can then select an existing folder to filter the spam into. All accounts have a “spam” folder already setup by default. We recommend using this, but you can select any other folder if you prefer. Finally at the bottom, in the “Additional Actions” check the STOP checkbox. This way if you have a vacation message setup you won’t send a vacation message to some bogus spammer email.
    6. Here is a screen shot of a completed spam filter.

    Please note that if you are checking your email from a POP mail client, only those messages in the INBOX will be downloaded, so the spam that gets filtered out will not be downloaded to your email client (but can be viewed with webmail.)

    How can I simply delete any mail tagged as spam?

    1. Click the Filters link at the top of the page.
    2. Click the “Add a New Rule” button.

    5. Below, in the Action section, click the “Discard silently” button, then the Apply Changes button at the bottom.

    What’s up with the folders called ‘Learn Spam’ and ‘Learn Ham’ ?

    These folders are not currently operational. Eventually, you can move spam that wasn’t tagged as such into these folders to “train” the system to recognize them as spam

    Learn Ham (Ham is not spam, i.e. legitimate email) does the same thing in reverse.
