From the moment you have user account, all you need to get connected to your inbox are:
- Microsoft Internet Explorer version 5.5 or newer (to check this help->about Internet Explorer). NOC cannot supply this software as well as the installation instruction because it is offered from the official site of the company. For more information visit the pages http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/.
- The brochure "User Account" you took from NOC.
After you open the browser, you must visit the address https://webmail.auth.gr/ (in order to use secure connection first you must trust the AUTH Certification Authority). The following page will appear:
