POP/IMAP, webmail phased out

As part of our phasing out of email service for individual OCF members, we have migrated to forward-only email service. This means that no new mail can be stored, so POP/IMAP email access is no longer very useful.

On June 21st, roughly a week from today, we will turn off POP/IMAP email access permanently for individual accounts. Webmail will also be unavailable after this date. We are leaving this window as we understand some users may wish to archive their emails by downloading them via POP/IMAP.

After this date, your mailbox will be moved into your home directory where you can access it at any time (we will never delete any mail). Your mailbox is in standard mbox format, which can be opened by almost any email client, or even a simple text editor.

If you have any trouble downloading your mail or accessing your OCF account, don't hesitate to reach out to us!
