Every FeministWiki member automatically has an email account like "janedoe@feministwiki.org" and can send and receive emails with it. This is completely separate from any private email addresses you might have, like from Yahoo, Hotmail, Gmail, and so on. You don't have to use your FeministWiki e-mail address, but it might be useful if you want to separate your private life from your political activism.

The easiest way to use your FeministWiki email account is to visit the "web interface" and log in with your FeministWiki username and password: https://mail.feministwiki.org/

Alternatively, you can configure any standard email application (e.g. Microsoft Outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird, or an email app on your smartphone) to use your FeministWiki email account to send and receive mail.
