Windows XP and SEMO.net Webmail Compatibility Issues
First of all, we are excited that our webmail system has been upgraded. One of the newest features is that you now have access to a calendar within webmail. I am convinced that the more you use our new webmail service, the more you will find uses for the new calendar feature.
The new and improved SEMO.net Webmail is not very compatible with Windows XP’s Internet Explorer. Microsoft ended all of their support of Windows XP back in March of this year, Internet Explorer cannot be upgraded on Windows XP past version 7, and the new security measures of our new Webmail are not compatible with Internet Explorer 7. Older Mac users using an older version of Safari browser are having similar problems.
We understand this is frustrating, but security is a prime concern in today’s world and we support our email vendor’s efforts to make the webmail system more secure. Microsoft’s decision to end the life of Windows XP after twelve years is at the heart of the issue. At the same time, an operating system that has lasted 12 years is also an amazing feat.
