Home / Email / Telus webmail – check messages from any computer
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.
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.
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.
Use the Telus login page to access the webmail interface – Webmail.telus.net
Telus webmail can also be accessed via any mobile phone that has a web browser. Point it to Mobile.Telus.net.
Via the Telus webmail, you can access not only your email messages but also contacts data. At the time of writing, you can store up to 1000 contacts in the online address book. The webmail interface also includes a music player and a photo slide show.
The best bet to avoid a ‘account full’ problem is to save Telus email on your computer by downloading them using an email client. It may sound quite techie but is actually quite simple. Refer the following pages for step by step instructions:
Conclusion: You can either use Telus webmail to check your email account or download and store message on your local computer with email programs.
My telus web mail limit is 100 mb not 1000 mb. The limit is a huge problem and when I asked about making it larger they wanted to charge me 15.00$ more a month to make it 150 mb.
Telus 100 mb webmail storage limit is a major irritant. They offer no options for upgrade as of Dec 2011 and are sticking with this ridiculously low webmail limit. Shaw offers 1,024 and Gmail offers 10,000 (free).
Why did I switch to Telus?
No need to continue with Telus webmail if you don’t want to. Take the advantage of the ‘Add Account’ feature on Gmail and get the Telus messages on the free email service. Alternatively, you can simply forward all email from your I.S.P. account to Gmail.
How do I view a deleted web page?
Is there a way to view a deleted web page - one that is no longer available? Yes there is and the solution is quite simple. [more...]
Starting 2011, Google agreed to pay Mozilla Corporation a tad less than half a billion dollars over a period of 3 years if they kept Google as the default search engine on their Firefox web browser. This was a very smart move from the company. Because in 2008, Google had launched Chrome, their own web browser, which had the world's most popular search engine as the default. Additionally, by the end of 2011, Chrome's usage surpassed that of Firefox, and by early 2012, it had exceeded that of Internet Explorer. It was now the world's most popular web browser. So, even though some might think that Google spent a gargantuan sum of money needlessly, I admire the think-tanks at the company. They kept pushing the usage of their core product, the one that made them the most valuable web company - the Google search engine. By the way, in 2006, Google had dished out $57 million to have their search bar in the Firefox. This amounted to 85% of Mozilla Corporation's total revenue. [more...]
