How to clear an email blockage.

  1. In Internet explorer go to www.mail2web.com
  2. DO NOT enter your mail address her but click on "Advanced Login" .
  3. At the next screen you will need to enter three things.
  4. Firstly your mail server address. This will be your main website/email address with the word mail (plus full stop) at the front e.g. mail.briefclick.com
  5. Then put in your full email address e.g. richard@briefclick.com. NOTE if you collect all mail and distribute it locally you will need to go to the main mailbox. This is normally called root, e.g. root@briefclick.com
  6. You will then need to enter your mailbox password
  7. Click on POP3 if not already selected then click on "Check Mail" tosee your mail messages. These are usually in reverse order with latest at the top.
  8. If a mail is blocking your queue it is most likely to be the one at the bottom of the list. You can open it by double clicking on it or delete it by clicking on the check box then clicking delete.
  9. Mails with large attachments over about 500k can cause your connect ion to "time out" and hence block you mail.
  10. Clearing the latest mail should free your mailbox. If not check all the messages then delete all from here.
  11. PLEASE NOTE that deleting messages here permanently deletes them from your mailbox and you CANNOT collect them later.
