This page will help SECAM staff members configure their SECAM email address.

Please note that your SECAM webmail username and password is not necessarily the same as your SECAM site membership username and password. Do not confuse the two.

If you are using a mail client like Outlook, the SMTP server (incoming and outgoing) is:  server.hashgroups.com
