Our local servers do not have some of the advantages of cloud-based options such as Gmail or Yahoo for this type of use. will continue to support a small town email option but your email account is only available using webmail when you are traveling or checking your email outside of our network. Cell phone companies no longer provide mail servers so today's smart phones can only send email using a cloud-based email client. email box holders may elect to migrate to one of these client based servers in order to receive and send emails from their phones, tablets and other mobile devices.
