Getting started

When the program starts, if there aren't configured WebMails the main form is displayed, otherwise the only the WEB! notify icon is displayed.

If you want to interact with the WEB! notify icon you can double click it with the left key or click it with the right key to display the menu.

The main form

The main form allows to Add a new WebMail to the list, to Remove, to Edit or to Open the selected WebMail or to display the Help or the About box.

Adding or editing a WebMail display the settings form:

At the beginning there are WebMail data (name, type, URL of the login page, and a check to ignore errors with SSL certificates that are not trusted), Login data (username and password) and some Options:

Notification Icons

Notification Icons are displayed only when the main form is hidden (also the periodic check of unread mails is done only when main form is hidden).

The WEB! icon is always shown.

 In this case there are unread mails on the OWA WebMail, and the SQU (Squirrel) WebMail icon is always shown (selected by the user).

 In this case there is a network error and all the WebMails are in error. If other kind of errors prevent only one or more WebMails to check for unread mails, only the problematic WebMail are shown.


WebMails are automatically loaded and saved when the program starts and stops from the program current directory.

By default a WebMail! directory is created by setup under the Application Data folder of the user profile, and the program shortcut in the Start Menu refers to that directory as the current one.

You can change the settings directory simply by changing the target directory from the shortcut.

Settings are saved in XML format, and the passwords are encrypted.

Settings include the unread mails poll interval, that is 5 minutes (300000 msec) by default.
