     6== Know the name of your primary host ==
     7
    68Before you can set up your email client to work with May First, you need to know which server you are on. If you aren't sure, log in to the [https://members.mayfirst.org/cp member center], where you'll see a line near the top of the page that says:
    79
    8 Your primary host is: chavez.mayfirst.org or viewsic.mayfirst.org or malcolm.mayfirst.org
     10 Your primary host is: chavez.mayfirst.org or viewsic.mayfirst.org or malcolm.mayfirst.org
    911
    1012Note your primary host name, and you'll be ready to go.
    1113
     14== Using Webmail ==
     15
    1216The easiest way to check your email is to use our webmail program. To access your email via webmail, simply go to:
    1317
    14 https://members.mayfirst.org/
     18 https://members.mayfirst.org/
    1519
    1620Choose your primary host and then enter your username and password.

     22== Using an Email program (a.k.a. Mail User Agent) ==
    1723
    1824All email clients need your settings for incoming mail and for outgoing mail. Your incoming mail will be either POP or IMAP. The choice between POP and IMAP depends on your own preferences, but if you aren't sure what to choose, and you plan to use one primary computer most of the time, we suggest you stick with POP.
