Use Webmail to Access a Shared Account (PC & Mac)

Accessing a shared mailbox via Webmail provides a way to adjust settings and rules that pertain to just the shared account rather than your own -- without the need for a password.  Here's what to do:

  1. Open a browser and log in to Webmail with your own username and password at [].
  2. Click your account icon, top right, then choose Open another mailbox from the drop-down.
  3. Type the name of your shared mailbox, select it from the list, then click Open.
  4. A separate tab will open on your browser for the shared account.  You can now adjust settings for this account (via the gear cog icon), create mailbox rules, add contacts, and more -- all of which are specific to the shared account rather than your own.
