You have two options for reading your CS email . It may be viewed through a program called alpine from any of the lab computers. To use alpine, open a terminal window and type alpine. Then hit enter, enter to choose your INBOX. Alpine is completely keyboard driven, you cannot use your mouse. Commands are listed on the bottom of the window. Note that the ^ character refers to the control (Ctrl) key. For example, ^X means to hold the control key and press x. Documentation for alpine may be found here.
Second is using a program called Thunderbird which is installed on the lab machines. Instructions for setting Thunderbird to read your CS email can be found here.
Communications from your instructors, the system administrator, or servers like the print server may be sent to this CS account. Please check it regularly or set a forward to an account you check regularly.
