THANKS TO DR UDAMA

My ex is back with the help of Dr UDAMA helping me to restore my relationship after 6 months of broken relationship. Now I'm living happily with my boyfriend. All thanks to UDAMA. Contact UDAMA via WhatsApp (+27658978226) Or email (UDAMAADA@YAHOO.COM) . It will be the answer to your problem, trust me. I am a living testament to her good work.

A free email service is now charging a large amount to keep an email address that most people have had for decades, linked to multiple accounts accumulated over the years.

Worst than being hacked - Webmail broke my trust

My webmail address of nearly 20 years has been closed without informing me. A lifetime of correspondence gone and now I have to pay a ransom to Webmail to get my data back. This is worst than getting hacked, I trusted Webmail when they promised me a free e-mail address and they have broken that trust.

webmail.co.za is a bad service

webmail.co.za is no longer a free service - they charge a hectic registration fee.

Furthermore, all old emails are gone, despite the promise that these would still be accessible. Technical support merely states that they are still busy with migrations and that all previous communications will be available soon/by tomorrow/by the end of the day. Of course, this never happens an weeks later all old emails are still gone.

Verdict:

highly unreliable and sh***y service. Avoid, avoid, avoid - pick any other email provider (there are plenty of free ones, even encrypted and without the need to have a cell phone number) or go back to using pigeons. Everything is better than webmail.co.za

Webmail Support not able to sort out my problem

I can't login to my old webmail? I also need to speak to someone at Webmail Support urgently. Sending emails back and forth didn't resolve my problem. Can't find a contact number. They are not even prepared to assist via Team Viewer.
Any assistance will be appreciated.

Good Day

For the incoming mail server you can use pop.webmail.co.za on port 995 with SSL or port 110 and no SSL.
Webmail does not offer an SMTP service and requires that users rely on their ISP for SMTP settings.

ISP SMTP Server list below

Telkom ADSL – smtp.dsl.telkomsa.net or mail.saix.net or smtp.saix.net
MWEB ADSL – smtp.mweb.co.za or smtp.mweb.net
Vodacom 3G – smtp.vodacom.co.za or smtp.vodamail.co.za
MTN 3G – mail.mtn.co.za or smtp.mtn.co.za
Cell C – mail.cmobile.co.za
iBurst – smtp.iburst.co.za
Internet Solutions (IS) – smtp.isdsl.net

I have seen webmail said that "due to the short time they had to migrate some emails could not be moved to the new server before the old server was discontinued." This resulted in the loss of info.

The popups is obviously to generate revenue as webmail is a free service I suppose. I do not see these popups, because I am opening my emails in Outlook.
