Instructions

I'd like to see email from my personal account in my Unimail mailbox. Can I do this?

Yes. Unimail has the ability to pull email in from other email accounts so that you don't have to check each mailbox individually. To set this up, do the following:

  1. Click "Options" at the top of the Unimail page
  2. On the "Account" page, scroll down to "Other Accounts"
  3. Click "New" under "Other Accounts"
  4. In the "New Account" window, enter the email address and password for the account which you wish to retrieve email from and click "Next"
  5. If successful, you will see a message stating that your accounts are now connected. Click "Finish" to complete the setup process.
  6. You will then be returned to the "Account" page where you should be able to see the account you just added listed under "Other Accounts". The status of email retrieval should be listed next to the account name.
  7. Click "My Mail" at the top of the Unimail window to return to your mailbox. You should eventually see email from the account you just added arriving in your Inbox.
