Says I need permissions
Expert:  Kamil Anwar replied 1 year ago.

You can access RCN's webmail from https://www.rcn.com/hub/customer-center/webmail/

see if your username and password ***** on it, then we'll configure it on Windows 10.

Wrong! I do not subscribe to webmail. I've already told you that, you're paying attention to that!! Wasting my time.. Bye
Expert:  Kamil Anwar replied 1 year ago.

Whether you subscribe or not, you're a rcn customer and you should automatically have access to webmail. We're trying to figure out whether your password ***** ***** or not, if it is correct we then proceed to the next step. It would be a pointless excercise to do everything before verifying password, and there is no other way to verify the password ***** you logging into webmail. We are tech's and we do this daily. If only you follow the instructions, you should be able to get somewhere with the issue and get the problem resolved.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have a very basic email account at RCN @$3.50 per month that does not include Webmail. I told you this. I DO NOT HAVE A WEB MAIL ACCOUNT. I WILL CALL THEM AND FIGURE IT OUT DIRECTLY. Next time read and react to your potential customer's responses to give a correct solution. BTW My password ***** ***** that's not the problem.... The end.
