Send an email using WebMail Contacts

Overview

There are two different ways to use your contacts in GCI’s WebMail application to send an email message. Both of these methods use the individual’s name and contact email address that must already be saved in the WebMail contacts. To see how to add a contact please view the WebMail Portal Upgrade Update article or click here. The main difference between the two approaches is how you start the email message process.
