What makes up the Webmail application?
Webmail is comprised of the following components: Mail, Contacts, Files, Calendar, RSS (optional), Admin (on applicable accounts), and Settings. Each part is tied together with the sidebar and contains a work area.
Navigating Webmail using the sidebar
The sidebar in webmail is available on the left-hand side of the window no matter which component that you’re currently viewing. The sidebar includes:
- Access to the six Webmail components
- Quick access to compose new messages
- Admin access depending on your account
- Help access
- A Logout button
Each Webmail component is divided into two or three work areas which are designed to take advantage of a wide-screen view. These sections automatically hide as you shrink the web browser down in size but are still accessible by a toggle at the top of the visible pane.
