The Windstream email account comes with 50MB of storage space and can be accessed via a webmail interface or through email programs such as Outlook Express and Windows Live Mail. Most subscribers use the former method to check messages on their Windstream account. The same webmail interface will work for alltel.net, ctc.net or valornet.com email accounts too.
The login process for Windstream email account is very simple. All you need are the username and the password. The Windstream login page is located at webmail.winstream.net – click that link to open the page in a browser window.
Now enter the email login details (username and password) and click the “Login” button to get access to your messages. Please remember that the username is your full email address and the password is case-sensitive.

An alternate way is to first visit the Windstream.net web site and then click the “Email” link which is located at top and the right section of the page – refer screenshot below.
