Getting more E-mail addresses



Dial Up accounts on Quad-Cities OnlineŽ are now capable of having multiple mailboxes on the system! For all members with unlimited access accounts we offer four additional E-mail boxes along with the mailbox that matches your dial-up name. For all members with limited time accounts like Member30 and Subscriber30, we offer two additional E-mail boxes along with the one that matches your dial-up name. You can also purchase mailbox only access for $3 per address per month.

(Note: E-mail addresses must be all lower case, have no spaces and no symbols of any sort, and must be between 3 and 12 letters or numbers. Passwords must also be lower case, have no spaces and no symbols of any sort and must be between 3 and 9 letters or numbers. If an address you choose is already in use, we will help you make another choice.)

For security purposes and your personal account protection, we are not setting up additional E- mail accounts over the telephone. You can request an extra mailbox by either sending us an E- mail at support@qconline.com or by filling in the form below with all the information requested.
First and Last Name:
Current QCO Email Address:
Desired New Email Address:

We will create your new mailboxes and, using your present address, send you a note letting you know when the additions are ready to go. We will work quickly at doing this, but, as you might suspect, there may be some delays.

Please keep in mind that there are many email clients (software programs) that do not handle extra mailboxes. Also, some require special configuration which our staff may not be able to help with. For this reason, we encourage you to see our Setting Up E-mail for Extra Mailboxes section. We also highly recommend that you go through the help files of your E-mail client because this is where most answers can be found.

To simplify the process of checking your new mailbox or if you prefer not to use an E-mail client for checking messages, we have now launched a webmail application. This web site will allow you to check any of your mailboxes at any time from anywhere without having to do anything but enter your name and password. Visit http://webmail.qconline.com and enter your login and password (in lower case) to log in. Using this service you can check your mail from any location that offers a web browser and an Internet connection. When you read notes from web mail they remain on the server so you can also read them with other programs. You can use web mail to check mail boxes both new and old. If you are unsure about features of the webmail client, you can read the help files for extra information.

Also, there are many providers out on the internet that offer free email accounts that can be accessed through any web browser. You can get as many addresses as you need from them with the added benefit that no configuration is required on your computer. You simply go to the web site of the provider you are using and manage your messages from there. The following is a short list of the more popular free email providers. You can find more by typing subjects such as free email into your favorite search engine.
