Using VFW Webmail
Our system is no different from any of the many high-end office email suites, only it is free and historical. By historical, I mean that it will be there for future post commanders, adjutants, and quartermasters. When a key officer leaves office, his mail stays behind for his successor.
Use of personal email addresses for business is a significant issue. If you think it is rough on your post, consider a small business where a key employee leaves and takes with them their knowledge base contained in their personal email account. What if you lost a key member due to death or work relocation/retirement?
Training on how to gain access to district or post email is now available to you on line. You can download the training guide here: VFW WebMail Help – NC 2012 (Redacted copy)
The VFW Webmail system, based on Zimbra mail, provides three mailboxes for each post. They are:
- Post Commander, cdrpostXXXX@nc.vfwwebmail.com
- Adjutant, adjpostXXXX@nc.vfwwebmail.com
- Quartermaster, qmpostXXXX@nc.vfwwebmail.com
