Webmail helps you access your emails on a web interface or any web browser at all, as long as you are connected to internet service and you have your login details.

For example, if you are logging into your domain email account via webmail, you will type in https://emerald4.smartwebng into your web browser.

You will have to delete or archive some old emails to allow new ones to come in.
Reached your daily message limits: It is important to know that Telkom Webmail has a daily limit. What this means is that there is a specific number of messages you can send per day.
