Email users can access their email either via the webmail system at http://mail.iaff2595.org (there is an Email Login button on the Member Home Page that will go to this address), or by using an email program like Microsoft Outlook, Entourage, or any POP3 compatible program.
Using a program like Outlook will cause the emails from your account to be downloaded to the Outlook program on your computer. The Webmail area will only display emails that have not been previously downloaded to your computer, it cannot display emails that are in your Outlook program.
The following settings are necessary to properly configure an email program:
Incoming POP3 server: mail.iaff2595.org
Outgoing SMTP server: mail.iaff2595.org
Username or Account Name: Full email address including @iaff2595.org
SMTP Authentication is required for sending email through our system.

* Note: If your ISP restricts sending email through outside email servers on port 25, you will need to change the default Outgoing SMTP port in your email program to port 587. If you configure your account with the proper settings for sending email and have connection problems, try changing the default port.
