  Overview

To get an email account on an emule server, you need to obtain the email id from your local administrator and use a device connected to the WIFI of the Village Access Point (VAP), i.e. RACHEL PLUS/Laptop Computer.

Your Administrator should provide you with a username and password and, if necessary, an IP address and details of the WIFI ssid.

Your email id is e.g. user1@VVVCC.mule.global, where VVV is village id and CC is country code.


  Connecting to a VAP

A user can connect to the VAP with any device that can offer a web browser or an IMAP client.

For example: RACHEL PLUS as VAP.
  • Connect to the WIFI access point of the RACHEL ssid:RACHEL.
  • The user will automatically see a welcome web page (at 192.168.88.1).
  • Should the web page not appear. The user should open a browser and type 192.168.88.1 in the address bar.
  • The user then clicks the WEBMAIL link (tab) to give access to the webmail pages.
  • The user enters the email and password provided by the local administrator (initial password is 'password').
  • The user may change the default password, through settings/password.

 Connecting via IMAP

If you would prefer to use your own email client, you may connect via the IMAP protocol. IMAP is a standard protocol built in to most email software.

The server details are :  192.168.88.1 port 143.

SMTP is also available on : 192.168.88.1 port 25
