Using Webmail ( https://webmail.kinetic.more.net/ )
Revised: October 24, 2013
You can use MOREnet's Webmail ( https://webmail.kinetic.more.net ) to acces your e-mail from any computer with an Internet connection. Unlike desktop e-mail clients, Webmail allows you to perform your e-mail activities from a standard web browser without regard to your Internet connection or special client software settings. Webmail provides convenient access to your e-mail if you are away from your primary computer or if you must share computer access with others in your organization.
MOREnet provides direct support to organization administrators. If you're experiencing problems, please contact your Service administrator.

WebMail Message Filters
Message Filters in WebMail allow users to define their own actions to move emails
received into folders of their choice. Basic filters can be set up based on the 'From',
'To', 'CC', and 'Subject' fields of emails received. More complex filters can be set up
based on the 'Header' lines of the received emails. To create or manage Message Filters,
when logged into WebMail, click on
It is recommended that WebMail users only scan unread messages. Setting message filters to 'scan all messages' is useful after creating new message filter rules, but thereafter does not provide any significant benefit. Users with very large amounts of stored email may find that scanning all messages results in lengthy delays and possibly browser timeouts. Users should scan all messages after creating a new set of rules, then set 'What to Scan' back to 'Only unread messages' for regular use under their new filter rules.
Prior to setting up message filters based on an email's Header lines, it is recommended to review the header lines included in a basic email. In WebMail while viewing any email, click on the 'View Full Header' link. WebMail will display the header lines for that email. WebMail users may find the following (example) header lines of particular use:
Example Message Filter
In the 'Move to:' drop-down box, select a folder into which WebMail will move a matching email. After clicking the Submit button, WebMail will thereafter check the header of any newly received email to see if it contains a header line matching the entered value. Emails that have been tagged as likely spam will be moved to the selected folder.
Example Message Filter
In the 'Move to:' drop-down box, select a folder into which WebMail will move a matching email. After clicking the Submit button, WebMail will thereafter check the header of any newly received email to see if it contains a header line matching the entered value. Emails that have four or more asterisks on the spam level line will now be moved to the selected folder.
Additional Message Filter Examples and How-To
You can use Webmail in addition to a desktop e-mail client to manage your e-mail. For organizations that provide computers that are shared by various account holders, Webmail is recommended since it does not require that a profile be configured for each account holder on a shared computer. For organizations where account holders do not share computers, desktop clients are recommended since they offer greater speed and better ease-of-use.
If you intend to use Webmail in addition to a desktop client, select the IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) setting when you configure your desktop client. IMAP is a more sophisticated protocol than POP (Post Office Protocol) and your experience with Webmail is affected by this choice. Consider the following reasons for using IMAP in your desktop client:
Importing iCal or Outlook Events into the WebMail Calendar
The calendars in WebMail will support the import of iCal events. Microsoft Outlook and Outlook Express are able to export calendar events in iCal format, however you will need to select the (Include) "Limited" or "Full Details" option. The Outlook Calendar (Include) "Availability" option will not import in a fashion that is usable.
