Telus Internet plans come with 5 – 10 email addresses all of which can be accessed from any computer located anywhere in the world. This is accomplished through a web-based interface designed by the company – the Telus webmail.
Features of the Telus webmail interface
The Telus webmail interface is start-of-the-art web-based system. It has been developed using the AJAX technology which allows you to work faster with minimal full-page reloads. The frequently used functions are just a click away and the search and the storage usage bars displayed prominently close to the top and bottom of the page, respectively.
The screenshot below will help you understand the basic layout of Telus webmail.
- Label 1: Probably the most important part of the Telus webmail – this is the list of email messages in the inbox (or any folder that you’ve selected).
- Label 2: The list of default folders in the Telus email account. You can also create custom folders to further segregate email messages in your account. These will be listed below the default ones.
- Label 3: The message preview pane shows the contents of the email you’ve selected.
- Label 4: The very handy toolbars.
- Label 5: Links to other useful sections such as Settings.
Telus provides 1000MB (1GB) of storage space with each of its email account. This probably isn’t much especially if you are in the habit of exchanging large files. However, you can get a whole lot more space on free email services providers; for instance, unlimited storage space for email on Yahoo! On a similar note, the email size limit on Telus is 15MB.
