Logging In And Logging Out

You must log in and be authenticated in order to use the Virtual Office Web Client.  Two versions of the Virtual Office Web Client are available, advanced and standard.

  • Advanced Web Client offers the full set of Ajax based web collaboration features. The advanced web client works with the newer browsers and the faster internet connections.

  • Standard Web Client is a good option when internet connections are slow or users prefer HTML-based messaging for navigating within their mailbox.

When the login dialog appears, you can select which version you want to log into.

  • In most cases, Advanced Web Client is the default client and is opened automatically when you log in.  You can change the default to be the Standard Web Client from your Preferences, General tab after you log in.

To log in
  1. Open a browser window and enter the URL provided by your Virtual Office administrator.

    For example:


  2. When the login screen appears, type your user name. You may be required to type your full email address as the user name and your password.  

Example of a full email address, type:


Your password displays as ****** on-screen, to protect your privacy.

  1. To be remembered on this computer until the session expires or you log out, check Remember me on this computer.

If you check this, you will not have to log in every time you restart the browser during a day.  When this is checked and you do not log out, your session remains active until the session expires. The system administrator configures how long a session is active.

Note: If you leave your web client open in your browser but do not access your mailbox for a period of time, your session may time out and then you will need to log back in.

  1. If you do not want the default client type, change the version displayed.

  2. Click Log In.
