If you have an e-mail account through
Mac.com service and you’d like to check it when you’re away from your computer, you can do that now. Apple has made publicly available a beta version of Mac.com Webmail, a service that enables you to check and manage your Mac.com e-mail account online, using a secured connection through a Web browser.
There’s certainly nothing new about being able to check an e-mail account on the Web, but Apple’s Mac.com Webmail service carries the customary Aqua-style look and feel propagated throughout the company’s product line, and sports an easy to use interface that shows you the contents of your account — including the contents of various folders.
You can also add a photo and a signature to be included with all of your mail, check mail from other POP e-mail accounts, show how much space you’re utilizing on the Mac.com servers and perform other administrative functions from the Preferences window.
That’s not all, either — you can also maintain a contact list using an online address book that you can then use when you’re using Mac.com Webmail to send e-mail as well.
Bear in mind that Apple is offering this service as a beta version, but the company is asking for feedback. Go ahead and visit the
Mac.com Webmail home page
for more details.
