New User Guide - Email Account

Most users want their WHOI email account first. Applying for an email account first is a good idea as most of our services depend upon having one.

The WHOI email system uses an IMAP server as opposed to a POP server. A POP server will "pop" your email messages from the server to your computer. An IMAP server lets you view and manage your email messages directly on the server. One of the advantages to this design is that it allows you to check your email from a different computer, and see the same set of folders and messages as you'd see from your office computer. This behavior is important to people at WHOI because so many of us travel and so many of us want to have access to our e-mail from home.
