Support Policy

From Mailbag Documentation

The free Mailbag E-mail Service is provided as a gift to our former residential ISP customers out of gratitude for our long relationship together.

Unfortunately, we are unable to provide the same high-touch support you were accustomed to with this free version of the Mailbag E-mail Service. Please review our new support policy before requesting support.

We hope you enjoy the improved and now free version of the Mailbag E-mail Service.



Services are broken down into three categories:

  1. CDW-Supported Services
  2. Self-Supported Services (end user responsibilities)
  3. Unsupported Services
