How do I configure my email program to work with May First/People Link?

Using Webmail

The easiest way to check your email is to use our webmail program. To access your email via webmail, simply go to:

https://members.mayfirst.org/

Using an Email program like Thunderbird

All 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 IMAP.

The settings below should get you going, but if you get stuck or your eyes are already glazing over, try looking up your email client in the list of "how to" items below.

Your username and password you set up when you created your email accounts.

Recommended settings:
