Hello, Is there any way one can find out the webmail access site using only the email address? Actually my friend was out of town and wanted to check her email using webmail but she had forgotten the webmail access site provided by her hosting service provider. She told me find this out but I could not. Any help on this would be highly appreciated. Thanks

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Many small ISPs use Plesk to manage their user accounts, the default is for the web mail for joeuser@domain.com to be http://webmail.domain.com/ login name joeuser and the password is the same as their POP3 password.

That’s what I’d try, anyway

    Just adding a little to last reply. Comments also apply to Exchange Webmail. Will often be an https:// URL ( Secure connection ) worth trying as an alternative.

    If it is her ISP she is trying to reach for e-mail, if she would go to the home page of the ISP, and navigate from there, she should find a listing for accessing webmail. Another option would be to use www.mail2web.com, where she woould only need to know her e-mail address and password. Hads she been trying to access a corporate site, she should check with her IT people before leaving to get the information needed to access the site via webmail. Some will allow it straight up, others will require a VPN to be established or have other methods for accessing corporate e-mail systems. Steve

    Hats off to stevesz. mail2web.com is working fine. Thanks a ton. I think that must be using a mail client application like outlook and must be downloading the mails to mail2web.com server. What do you think?

    I think it just puts a web front end on the mailbox at the ISP. They have been around for quite a while, long before nearly everyone offered a web front end on their mail servers. Steve
