The CERN Mail Service provides several useful tools that allow
users to better customize their mail environment. Access to these
advanced features has always been possible through a set of command
line tools accessible by connecting (via
the Mail Server. A Web interface has now been created to provide
easier and more intuitive access to most of these features
(important particularly for less experienced users) and accessible
by Netscape Navigator at:
To connect to this Web interface you must know your Mail Server login and password (i.e. the one used to read mails by Netscape - note that this is specific for the Mail Server and has nothing to do with that of other central services like AFS or NICE).
Once connected a new window is open (fig. 1) which contains the user description (on top) and the actions you can perform. Actions are grouped in the following sets:
Clicking on a group name you get access to its actions. To execute one action you must simply click on the corresponding link and follow the given instructions.
All actions take effect immediately, so for example if you enable your vacation message you can immediately test it by sending a message to yourself. Once you have finished, remember to logout from the interface by clicking on the "logout" button at the top of the window.
