What is WebPort?
Accessing the WebPort E-Mail Server
Students and teachers may access their e-mail by using their favourite Web browser or by using an IMAP enabled e-mail client such as Outlook or Outlook Express.
Every user account in the Active Directory will now have a corresponding e-mail address available in the WebPort. Users can log-in with their usual username and password to access their E-mail.
Accessing E-Mail Messages
Unlike POP3 based mail servers, e-mail is stored on the WebPort server making all your messages accessible through the Webmail interface, wherever you are in the world.
In addition, e-mail can be easily backed up and if necessary monitored for abuse (subject to governing privacy laws).
Clicking on the subject of a message will display the contents of the e-mail, including standard header information (shown below)Demonstration
Clicking on the “WebDisk” icon will allow you to access your home area on the fileserver.
Clicking on a file will download it to your computer and if possible open the associated program.Demonstration
Finding Messages & Files
Searching the WebPort is easy using the powerful yet simple “Search” feature. E-mail messages can be searched as well as files on the WebDisk.
Security is Paramount
The WebPort server can be installed in a variety of ways depending on the flexibility of the firewall and network architecture.
The traditional way is to install the WebPort Appliance on the same subnet as the existing Active Directory Server.
This requires a route from the “public” gateway through to the WebPort Appliance on the local LAN, for ports 443 and 22.
In the DMZ (Demilitarised Zone)
A DMZ is a small network that sits between a trusted Internal network, such as the school LAN, and an untrusted external network, such as the Internet.
The WebPort Appliance can be installed at the DMZ, offering extra protection for the school LAN in the unlikely event of a hacker gaining access to the server.
This requires a route from the DMZ to the Active Directory server for ports 389 and 750.
