Area 50 WebMail

Each Area 50 service position holder is issued a private webmail account to send and receive messages pertaining to area business.

Area 50 webmail is hosted by IONOS (by 1&1), the company that has been providing web hosting services to the area since 2008. Web mail accounts are free to the user. They have 2GB storage capacity, an anti-virus and anti-spam filter, and other advanced features (calendar, address book).

IONOS webmail functions much like other web-based email services, such as Gmail, Outlook, or Yahoo Mail. Users can:

  • Send and receive text-based messages
  • Attach documents (.txt, .docx) or image files (.jpg, .png, .gif)
  • Create a custom file hierarchy for archiving messages

For an in-depth tutorial on IONOS webmail functions, log into your web mail account and click on the Online Help icon (question mark).
