In this 1/2 day workshop, members of the Ottawa PC Users' Group (OPCUG) will explain the basics of how electronic mail works, including the differences between using webmail and an E-mail client. The features of POP and IMAP mail systems, and their application to multiple devices (notably smartphones and tablets), will be discussed.
Today's E-mail systems are constantly under threat from hackers, so we will take a look at some vulnerabilities and see how best to protect personal mail systems. We will see how managing E-mail can be achieved efficiently - and automatically - using a combination of folders and filters. The basic processes for moving between webmail and E-mail clients by transferring address books and messages will be outlined. And, for those who wish to have the personal touch for their mail system - or who don't want to be locked in to a specific service provider - we will see how to create and use portable E-mail addresses.
