you go to MCN Webmail
to see your mail (being held on the MCN server), you'll have a choice
to view it in either: Old Webmail or MCN's brand new New Webmail.
Below are some new features and slight differences of the New Webmail
program verses our old one.
The new Webmail program can do everything the old Webmail program could
mail filters or mail rules. MCN hopes to add this feature in the near
future. Please remember, you'll still be able to view your mail in the
Old MCN Webmail program if you choose, as both programs will house your
mail being held on the MCN server.

The new webmail program "times out" in 15 minutes. Meaning:
if the program isn't used for 15 minutes it will automatically log you
out. This is for security, but if you were in the middle of
composing an email you'll lose all your work.
We're working to find a way to resolve this problem and increase the
time out time. Until then please do the following:
