By Freeola Support on 2nd April, 2019 | 0 Comment(s)

Welcome to the Freeola Internet customer support pages. This guide is designed to help with setting up a Freeola email address on the Mail app for Windows 8 and 8.1. For more internet help topics please visit our main Support Page.

 

Before Continuing... 

 

Please visit your MyFreeola account and make a note of the following information before continuing, you'll need to know this for later on in the guide:

 

1, What protocol your e-mail address is set up to use (IMAP or POP3).

2, What service is assigned to your e-mail address (EmailPro, Free Email or One Address).

3, Your e-mail address password.

 

You can find this information by clicking Email Settings in the left-hand navigation in MyFreeola, then My Email Addresses. You should then be able to click Settings & Features button next to the relevant e-mail address, your e-mail protocol and service information can be found here.

 

Please Note:

 

The Windows 8 and 8.1 Mail app doesn't support POP3 access to your email address. If you would like to set your email address up in this program, you will need to ensure that you have your email address set to use IMAP from within your MyFreeola control panel.



  1. Load the Mail program in Window 8 by clicking the bottom left of your screen, then clicking the Mail icon in the start screen that displays.
