Quick Start Guide: instructions on how to access the email and how to forward emails
The Florida Conference of The United Methodist Church (FLUMC) believes that a seamless flow of information is a vital resource to assist church leaders in their ministry of making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
As a result, in recent months, FLUMC has been working on updating its email communication system with clergy.
Allowing every clergy person in the conference to select and use any Internet Service Provider (ISP) has created many problems. As a result, the ability to assure the delivery of conference related email to clergy has been poor at best.
In response to this issue, FLUMC has developed and is getting set to launch a plan that gives every clergy person an email address assigned to them by the conference. This will be at no cost to the individual for this email service or address, which will result in savings in staff time at the Conference Center from staff no longer making changes in the clergy email data base.
Thus, beginning Monday, March 3, email coming from the Florida Conference to its clergy will be sent to this new address. However, to give clergy time to make the switch from their current e-mail address to the new, conference-provided e-mail address, emails will be sent to both the “old” and the “new” address for four weeks. On April 1, however, ALL email sent from the conference will go only to your new account. No foolin’.
Instructions on how to access the new email address are available by clicking on the link below. Also, the link “Quick Start Guide” offers instructions on how to access the email and how to forward emails received at your new address to any email address you currently use.
A more comprehensive guide to Outlook Web Access (the system you’ll use to access your new email account), is also available at the link below.
To start, you’ll need any computer that has access to the internet. Simply go to http://webmail.flumc.org, enter your username and password, and you’ll be able to read emails sent to you by the conference.
