Navigating Webmail using the sidebar

The sidebar in webmail is available on the left-hand side of the window no matter which component that you’re currently viewing. The sidebar includes:

  • Access to the six Webmail components
  • Quick access to compose new messages
  • Admin access depending on your account
  • Help access
  • A Logout button

Work Area

Each Webmail component is divided into two or three work areas which are designed to take advantage of a wide-screen view. These sections automatically hide as you shrink the web browser down in size but is still accessible by a toggle at the top of the visible pane.
