Certain Mount Island team members will need a professional-looking @mountisland.com email address. If you’re one of those team members, this guide will help you get settled in with your account and show you how to send and receive emails from your preferred email client (Gmail, Outlook, Thunderbird, whatever).
Shared @mountisland.com Addresses
Some team members may need access to shared email accounts (email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, etc.). If you are one of those team members, you will receive your login info in a private email.
Your Email/Username and Password
All individual staff email addresses are [firstnamelastname]@mountisland.com, i.e. email@example.com.
When your staff email account is created, you will receive a notification at your personal email address with your login information, including an initial password which you should change upon logging in.
