All pirates found in the HCPL seas can use the webmail known as RoundCube. It allows accessibility to email from any location, even outside the system, and keeps everything central for support and backup purposes. RoundCube lacks a calendar, but saves drafts as you write in case you are interrupted by cannon fire or swashbuckling, has a handy way to build an address book, and lets you view images in addition to text. You have options about how you want your messages to be displayed when sent or received, and how you want them to be stored.

On to the Hunt...
If ye want a precious key, six tasks to complete there be. Record your entries using the form. Follow the instructions on the form (and in Question 6) to submit.
  1. Email Help
    Beware! The “Help” section of RoundCube has been hijacked! Not to fear because fellow pirates on the web have left some tracks in a wiki for you to follow. There you will find a treasure chest full of ways you can get help. List all of the options found in the 'More actions...' icon located in your action bar.

  2. Click on the 
    silhouette to
    record your pirate's 
    address in a flash!
  3. Address Book
    All email users have pirates to whom they email regularly. It is useful to have the email addresses of these pirates on file so that they don't have to be re-typed every time you want to send them a message. 
    1. List the steps to open the address book treasure chest and add a new pirate in RoundCube.
    2. There be four pieces of information you can enter for each listing in your address book. What are they?
  4. Folders
    If you are stowing away some emails for future adventures, it is good practice to create some folders for them, rather than just let everything accumulate in your inbox. For example, anything that has to do with your treasure maps could go into a "Secret Maps" folder.
    1. Create a new folder and then tell the tale of how it was done.
    2. Bury some email items into this folder. Describe how you did that.
  5. Trash
    Each buccaneer has a fixed amount of storage space allotted to them in the HCPL coffers for saving important emails. If this amount is exceeded, your account will be temporarily shipwrecked.
    1. Note what percentage of your storage you are using. You can find this figure at the bottom of your folder list.
    2. When you make an email that is no longer needed walk the plank, it moves to a Trash folder. Depending on the settings of your account, it may stay in the Trash folder unless you actively empty it. Trash folder can eat up your storage allotment, so you should develop a habit of emptying it regularly or adjusting your settings so that it is automatically emptied each time you log out. Empty the Trash, and list the steps you followed to do it. How much of your storage are you using now?
  6. Searching
    You’ve jettisoned what you could and are still fat with emails. Be not afraid. RoundCube has a box that lets you enter a search term so you can find a specific email. What you type will display results related to your search. Think of it as a spyglass. You are able to locate a single message out of sea of emails. 
    1. There are six parts of an email where one can choose to look when hunting for specific words or phrases.  What are they?
    2. Search entire messages in your Inbox for "treasure" and share how many emails you found with that word inside.
  7. Attachments
    An attachment is a file or photo that you want to send along with an email message. The basic steps for adding it are to click on the "Attach" link (a paper clip icon) and then browse through your files to select (by clicking "upload") what you want to attach.

    To complete this module, create an email message and send it to the pirate council known as The League of Intrepid Travelers ( In your message register your official pirate name that all will fear. In addition attach the form to complete your registration. 
That be it for this part of the hunt, matey! The Email key to the Treasure Chest is now in your pocket. Click here to return Home.
