    Good day!
    I have a new webmail email account.
    I would like to add it to my computer so that I can access emails from my computer.
    Is there someone who could talk me through this process?

    Thanks!

    1. launch a browser
    2. in the address bar of the browser type the url of the mail service (e.g., outlook.com)
    3. login to your account

    Thank you for your reply.
    Is there a way to access this account without having to sign-in? That is- in the same way that I am able to sign into gmail? (if that makes sense?)

    How are you accessing your Gmail? Are you using their webmail interface or an e-mail client like Outlook, the Win10 Mail App, or Thunderbird?

    It's unclear to me what you're asking, as if you're using an e-mail client when you set up the account you typically supply the password the client uses to log you in automatically when it starts. If you're using a browser and webmail, you should be able to remain logged in until you log out provided you do not clear cookies on exit from your browser. If you do clear cookies, you also clear your login record.

    No. Or, if it is possible I strongly suggest that you ditch that account immediately, as it would be the only mail service that does not have at least minimal security. You can, as stated in the previous post, depending on the service, your email client or browser and cookies and settings, remain signed in for long periods of time.
