2) How is your mail different form my ISPs?

Most email provided by Internet Service Providers (ISPs) requires the use of a email software program on your computer. To access email provided by ISPs, an account holder needs to properly configure their software with settings provided by their ISP.

Top10Links email uses open web based technology. You can access your email from any conventional web browser. No special settings are required and no new software needs to be installed.

ISPs also require you to dial a specific telephone number in order to access your account and mail. This can be a problem if the ISP does not have local numbers in multiple areas - especially when traveling overseas.

Since Top10Links email is accessible over the web, no special number is required to access your mail. You can access it from any computer, at any time, any where in the world. Just go to our home page and login.
