Info regarding Email via the CPPL WiFi
We've shut down SMTP in order to protect our infrastructure and our customers from a SPAM engine being brought in.
If you have ANY software on your computer (other than a web browser) to read email, you are using an email client and you WILL NOT be able to send email via the CPPL WiFi. You will be able to read it and receive it. You can also write an email and put it in a DRAFT folder to send later.
If you are ONLY in a browser, your email should work.
