Hello,

I can't access my email account through webmail...
I have a website and an email account with that domain and I've always been able to access the email via webmail (squirrel mail), while at the office but one week on my new job and I cannot access my personal email account from the new office, I suspect that the administrator is blocking my computer from accessing it.
I can access any other web page.

I am using here a mac with OSX.

Do you know how can I access my webmail without having to ask the administrator??

thank you!

I'm sorry, but you are probably out of luck on this. Companies tend to block IP ports on their routers that are not necessary for business operations for security purposes, not necessarily to keep workers from checking Web mail (but sometimes for that purpose, too). I can't get to some of my Web-based e-mail accounts from work, either. Contacting the administrator probably won't help - they are not likely to open up a port so someone can get his or her personal e-mail from the office, unless you are a high-level executive. Wish I could be of more help!

Mile runner,

I understand what you say, I am sorry I didn't read the rules and I didn't realise that what I was asking was actually not something that should be asked with security and all that, now it seems so obvious!

Anyway, thanx for all the help and as far as I am concerned, this issue is now resolved.

Best regards,
