in your password, such as the following:
Your default email address is related to
your cullum number (wp<cullum>@west-point.org). You are
entitled to one email "alias", such as "john.doe",
which would give you an email address of firstname.lastname@example.org.
That alias is aliased to the wp<cullum> address. See "admin
page" below, to establish your alias.
Your email settings:
POP (incoming) server = pop.west-point.org
SMTP (outgoing) server = smtp.west-point.org

We have a "POP before SMTP" protocol
using the Sendmail program. What this means to you, using Argon
as your SMTP server, is that you must check for new email messages
prior to trying to send any email. For most, this follows normal
routine, will be transparent and will not cause any undue headaches.
This is how POP before SMTP works: When you log onto the server
and check your mail, the server notes the IP address from which
the connection was made. The server will permit you to retrieve
and send mail from that IP address for 15 minutes following each
authentication (mail check). When you check your mail, you are
authenticated as a valid user by the POP daemon. Your IP address
is put into an "authenticated" file for 15 minutes.
When you go to send mail, the sendmail daemon looks in this file
for your IP number and, if it finds it, it lets you relay (send
your message). After 15 minutes of inactivity with the POP daemon,
your IP address is removed. However, if the timeout is set for
15 minutes and your mail client checks For new mail every 5 minutes,
you will always be authenticated. After all that explanation,
the two things to remember in this spam- necessitated new world
order are the following:
1. Always check for mail before attempting
to send mail.
2. Set your email client to check for new mail at less than 15-minute

We're proud to roll out an extended beta
test of a new application, the Online Ward Book. Based on the
Class of 1964's Ward Book - a periodic compilation of contact
and personal information for each member of the Class of '64
- WP-ORG has created an online version to chronicle the living
histories of ALL classes. Class bonding and cohesion is directly
related to lifetime support of AOG and USMA. There is no greater
'multiplier' than this effort, especially for those younger classes,
competent in internet technology, dispersing into civilian pursuits
more quickly than prior classes. This is directed toward the
graduates in our community. Here's how it looks for my page..
How does it work? Each graduate has a login
based on their Cullum number. It is the same login and password
as for your WP-ORG e-mail accounts (i.e., for Jack Price it is
wp25244 since his cullum number is 25244) ***Note, you MUST change
your automatically generated password (which will come to you
in that separate email following this) in order for your login
to work in the Ward Book login area.
Log in (click the "Log In" button
in the left-hand column) with your WP-ORG login (username = wpXXXXX
where XXXXX is your Cullum number) and password. When you are
logged in, you'll see 5 buttons at the top for "Basic Info",
"Cadet Co.", "Children", "Addresses",
and "Remarks". For the first-time user, click on each
of those in order and fill in the information. This creates your
basic entry that you can view by clicking on "Your Entry"
at the top right. The "Remarks" section is an area
for you to add comments and family history. More "Remarks"
can be added at any time, all are archived for historical use.
Since this is personal information, we
have incorporated several levels of viewing permissions. The
default security is set such that only a graduate can view your
entry. However, you may restrict this further to Graduates in
Your Class Only or totally Private. Or you may choose to make
the entry Public.
