Rice Webmail Features
Webmail allows you to check your email any where you have an Internet connection.
Here's the link to webmail: webmail.rice.edu
The Rice webmail interface is mobile friendly, allows you to drag and drop messages, and the default settings hide all deleted messages. The display is much easier to use, with actions and options included in drop down menus on the right top corner, rather than displayed in text across the top of the window. The default for forwarded messages is to include the original text as an attachment, but 'In Body Text' is also an option displayed when the forward feature is selected.
