Zimbabwe Internet Services Email POP3 email allows
you to work offline to reply and write as many emails as
you want without getting charged any Internet calls. Your
in coming email will be downloaded from our mail servers
as soon as you make an Internet connection. Your out going
mail will also be sent upon connection.
Any mail client such as MS Outlook Express, Eudora, Pegasus
and Entourage are compatible with our email service. Further
more, almost all of these clients are available free of
charge over the Internet. Your email client must be configured
(set) properly in order to send and receive email. Configuration
differs from one email client to another, but they all require
the same basic settings. If you have problems configuring
your email client please contact our Webmaster. Configuration
details for Outlook Express are found below.
Using pop3 clients will give you access to
a much more robust spellchecker than the ones generally
found in web-based email services. Filtering and blocking
unwanted emails is much more advanced.Some mail clients
to be used with Stoke Internet can even read your email
for you. They allow you to manage multiple emails addresses.
