Random Lyrics

It's the heart afraid of breaking
that never learns to dance
It's the dream afraid of waking
that never takes the chance
It's the one who won't be taken
who cannot seem to give
and the soul afraid of dying
that never learns to live.

— The Rose

Using your @MerrillvilleChoir.com e-mail address

Beginning June 1st, MerrillvilleChoir.com will be offering free e-mail addresses to current students, booster members & officers, active alumni, and choir staff. E-mail addresses can be acquired sending an e-mail to Tom.
Once you've been sent your confirmation e-mail with your new e-mail address and instructions, you're ready to begin using your new account.

MerrillvilleChoir.com offers two methods of accessing your e-mail. They are:

In order to access your e-mail, you must specify (at all occasions when you are asked) that your username or login name is your ENTIRE E-MAIL ADDRESS. For instance, I would write "tom@merrillvillechoir.com" for my username and when I log into webmail rather than simply "tom." Please keep this in mind to avoid confusion.

Accessing your e-mail via. a web page (WebMail)

E-mail Access BlockThe easiest way to log in to access your e-mail via. the internet is by using the links provided in the block on the right-hand side of the MerrillvilleChoir.com Home Page. The block will look somthing like what's pictured to the right. To access webmail directly, you can either use the easy-to-remember address http://webmail.merrillvillechoir.com/ or the address http://www.merrillvillechoir.com:2095/. Secure (SSL encrypted) webmail can be used by going to the address https://www.merrillvillechoir.com:2096/, but note that the security certificate is registered to neptune.hytekhosting.com, not a merrillvillechoir.com address.

HordeNeoMailWe offer two different webmail programs you can use for accessing your e-mail. Horde is a suite of applications including e-mail, calendar, memo pad, and task list. It offers many features and is easy to use. For those looking for something simpler, we also offer NeoMail, a simpler e-mail-only program. I recommend trying Horde, and, if you find it difficult to work with, switching to NeoMail and trying it instead. All your mail should transfer freely between the two programs, so that should not be a problem.

Every time you log in, you will be presented with a screen asking which webmail program to enter. Simply click the program you want to use and it will start. (This screen also provides a link that allows you to change your password.) There are also direct links to each e-mail program provided on the front page of the MerrillvilleChoir.com page. Favorites or bookmarks are also an acceptable way of entering into the program of your choosing directly.

Accessing your e-mail using an e-mail client program on your computer

If you prefer to download your e-mail to your own computer for viewing, you can configure nearly any internet e-mail client to talk to MerrillvilleChoir.com. Use the information from the "Info at a glance" section below to configure your client. There are two things you'll need to be careful about: (1.) You must use your entire e-mail address for a username. For example, you should type in singin_guy@merrillvillechoir.com rather than singin_guy for a user name. (2.) You should set your outgoing mail server (SMTP Server) to use authentication (using the same username and password that you use for incoming mail). This is not the default in most programs, so be sure to change this setting.

Due to the overwhelmingly large number of e-mail clients in existence, I'm not going to provide any step-by-step instructions here. If you have any difficulty, feel free to contact us and we'll help you through the setup procedure. If I receive several requests for help with the same program, I'll set up a step-by-step tutorial for future users. MerrillvilleChoir.com E-mail Addresses have been confirmed to work with the following programs:

  • Microsoft Outlook XP
  • Microsoft Outlook 2000
  • Microsoft Outlook Express
  • Netscape (and Mozilla) Mail
  • Eudora Mail
  • ... and should work with many others as well.
