Model Mail in WebEA

Enterprise Architect's internal Model Mail system can be accessed within WebEA, allowing you to view and send messages from your web browser.

When enabled, Model Mail can be accessed via the 'Mail'  tab on the Collaborate screen, which is accessible by the speech bubble icon in the header.

Note: to use Model Mail the model must have User Security enabled, and the WebEA configuration should have the 'Show Model Mail' option set to 'Yes'. This is set to 'No' by default. See the How to configure WebEA models topic for details.
