Accessing DeafMail

What is needed to get on?

As DeafMail is using the CIX conferencing system, you need a CIX account to access DeafMail. On CIX there are many, many other conferences of any subject and they are UK-orientated. A CIX account also provides an email account and access to the Internet. CIX is highly rated for fast connection, speed and reliability of access.

PC users using Windows will also need the Ameol offline reader and communications software (supplied free on the CD by CIX) to access CIX conferencing and manage the messages sent and received to and from the CIX conferencing system.

Usually 2.5 hours is enough because each CIX blink (connection) to download and upload CIX conferencing and email messages takes on average only 1 to 2 minutes. This works out at an average of about 100 blinks per month.
