Sign In and Password FAQs:
How do I change my password?
In your ello email account, click Options > Change Your Password. If you don't see the option to change your password directly under Options, click Options > See All Options, then click Change Your Password.
Follow the instructions on the change password page.
If you connect to your ello account from your mobile device, after you update the password for your account, you also need to update the password in the settings on that device to match your new password. Similarly, you also need to update the password in the settings of any other desktop email application you may be using (for example, Apple Mail, Mozilla Thunderbird, Microsoft Outlook, or Windows Live Mail).
What if I’ve forgotten my password?
You will have to contact your local Global Support Centre (GSC) to perform the reset.
Why can’t I connect to my account from my mobile device or desktop email programme after resetting or changing my password?
You need to update the password value in the settings on your mobile device or desktop email programme each time your password changes.
How can I set up Outlook 2007 or later so it won't prompt me to enter my password repeatedly?
Office Outlook 2007 will send you a password prompt every time you open the programme to connect to your email. You may choose the “Save my Password” option on the prompt so that your login page does not prompt you for your password again until you reset your new password when necessary. Password prompts should appear very infrequently or shouldn't appear at all after you enter the password once to connect to your email.
How can I fix the sign-out loop issue I'm encountering in Safari?
You experience a sign-out loop problem in an Apple Safari browser when you click Sign out from your account. The sign-out loop continues to toggle between two URLs. This issue results from a cookie setting in the Safari browser.
How do I fix the problem?
Close the Safari browser or tab where you're experiencing the sign-out loop issue.
Open up a new instance of the Safari browser.
From the menu at the top, click Edit > Preferences > Security tab.
Under Accept cookies, select Always.
Close the window.
ello Email FAQs:
How big can attachments be in my ello email? What's the maximum message size that's allowed?
By default, you can attach a maximum of 125 file attachments to an email message, none of which can exceed the message size limit. The default message size limit is 25 MB. The message size includes the message body, message header, and any attachments that are contained in the email message.
Can I create a "reply to" email address for my account in ello email?
No, changing the default "reply to" addresses are not currently supported.
Why did I receive a warning that my message couldn’t be sent, and to try again later?
You might have received this message because you’ve been sending a large number of emails, or a few messages to a large group of recipients, and have reached the sending limit for your mailbox.
Any emails you send while over the sending limit of your mailbox will automatically be saved to your Outbox folder. After waiting awhile, you can open the email from your Outbox folder and try sending it again. If you’re still over the sending limit, you’ll see the warning message again. The email will stay in the Outbox folder until you send or delete it. If you’ve waited a full 24 hours and still receive the same warning when you try to send a message, try reducing the number of recipients.
What is Connected Accounts?
If you have multiple email accounts and want to interact with all your mail in one place, then you can connect your ello account to your other email accounts. This lets you use your ello account to send and receive mail from the connected accounts.
Go to the Gear Icon for settings on the upper right corner and click Options
Click connected accounts and then click the + sign
Enter the email address and password of the email account that you wish to add
How can I bring contacts from other email accounts such as Yahoo! into my ello email account?
You can use the Import Contacts wizard to import contacts from other email accounts.
Export the contacts from your other email account/s to a .csv file. Note where you save the .csv file.
Sign in to your ello email account.
Go to Contacts, and then click Import in the toolbar. Or, go to Options > My Account > Shortcuts to Other Things You Can Do, and then click Import Your Contacts from an Existing Email Account.
Enter the path to the .csv file with your contacts, or click Browse to locate your file.
Wait while your contacts are imported.
When the import is complete, click Finish.
What else do I need to know?
If the same contact is in your Contacts folder and in the .csv file, a duplicate contact will be created.
if you try to import too many contacts, you'll see an error message. Use a programme such as Excel to open the file and break it into smaller files, and then import each file.
Email Programmes FAQs:
Why can’t I connect to my account from my mobile device or desktop email programme?
This may be related to a password issue. This can happen if your password has expired. It can also happen if the password setting that’s entered in the settings on your mobile device or desktop email programme (for example, Apple Mail for Mac, Mozilla Thunderbird, Microsoft Outlook, or Windows Live Mail), doesn’t match the most current password for your account.
To resolve this, you may need to update your expired password or change your password. Or, if your password recently changed, you may be able to resolve this by updating the password settings value on your mobile device or desktop email programme to match the most current password that you use to sign in to ello.
Why am I getting the error notice "An encrypted connection to your email server is not available" when I try to set up Outlook 2007 or Outlook 2010 for my email?
When you try to set up your ello email using Outlook 2007 or Outlook 2010, Outlook doesn't connect, and you get the following error:
"An encrypted connection to your mail server is not available. Click Next to attempt using an unencrypted connection."
To resolve this error, you may need to register your ello email account before you can connect to your email using Outlook. You can register your account by signing in to your ello email account. After you sign in to your account, sign out. Then try to connect to your ello email account through Outlook again.
Why can't I set up Outlook 2007 to get my email from my account in the Outlook Web App (Windows XP)?
If you're running Windows XP on your computer and are using Outlook 2007 to set up your ello email, you may receive multiple log in prompts when you're filling in your account information. These prompts may prevent you from continuing to set up your account. To fix the issue, please contact your local GSC available 24/7 via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at +603 7949 8288.
How can I move data from my current Outlook account to my account in ello email?
Currently, the only way to move Outlook 2007 or Outlook 2010 data is by using a Personal Folder (.pst) file. You can back up your data from your current account using a .pst file and then import the data from your .pst file into your ello email account that you're accessing with Outlook.
If you can use Outlook 2007 or Outlook 2010 to access an account, you can move your email, contacts, task, and calendar information from your existing Outlook account to your new account. You do this by first backing up the existing data in your old Outlook account to a Personal Folder (.pst) file and then importing it into your new ello email account.
How do I back up my existing Outlook data to move it to ello email?
In Outlook, click File > Import and Export.
In the Import and Export Wizard dialog box, do the following:
Under Choose an Action to Perform, select Export to a File, and then click Next.
On the Export to a File page, select Personal Folder File (.pst), and then click Next.
On the Export Personal Folders page, under Select the Folder to Export From, select Mailbox . Select the Include Subfolders check box, and then click Next.
On the Export Personal Folders page, in the Save Exported File as box, note the location where the backup.pst file will be created. By default, it's C:\Users\\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\backup.pst. Under Options, select Replace Duplicates with Items Exported, and then click Finish.
On the Create Microsoft Personal Folders page, click OK to create a .pst file.
How do I move the data to ello email?
Connect to ello email using Outlook 2007 or Outlook 2010.
In Outlook, click File, and then click Import and Export.
In the Import and Export Wizard dialog box:
Under Choose an Action to Perform, select Import from Another Programme or File, and then click Next.
On the Import a File page, select Personal Folder File (.pst), and then click Next.
In Import Personal Folders, under File to Import, locate the backup.pst file you created. Under Options, select Replace Duplicates with Items Imported, and then click Next.
In Import Personal Folders, under Select the Folder to Import From, select the top node. Select Include Subfolders, select Import Items into the Same Folder in, and then select the top node of your mailbox (Mailbox - ). Click Finish.
After you click Finish, Outlook will import the contents of the backup.pst file into the local Outlook data store on your computer. After the data has been copied into the local data store, Outlook will upload the data to your ello email account. If you have lots of data in your mailbox, this may take hours. Make sure that you don't shut down Outlook, and make sure you're connected to the destination account while the upload happens.

Your speakers are turned on and that you have not muted sound in your Windows operating system.
The speaker volume is high enough to be audible.
The device you’re using is selected in the Audio Device Settings in ello.
ello on Mobile Devices FAQs:
When I make a Lync to Lync call does it use my mobile minutes?
If you make an audio call to a contact, it is connected through data network (Wi-Fi / 3G / 4G), so it will not use your mobile minutes.
Can I make cellular or landline call through the Mobile App?
Calls to normal cellular or landline numbers are not supported. To make a call the contact must have an ello account.
I don’t see all my conversations history on my mobile phone?
The conversations history on the phone is not synced to the ello server. This means that conversations that occur on your mobile device will be displayed only on that device’s conversation history and nowhere else. Also, when you delete a conversation on your mobile device, that conversation is permanently deleted. To keep a record of a particular conversation you’ve had on your mobile device, send the conversation to yourself from the app as an email message.
After I type my username and password to setup my ello email account on my mobile device, it still asks me for Server name and other information.
This may happen if you have an older software version of the mobile device. To fix this you may try to supply the following information where needed:
Server Name: m.ello.net
Username: your ello email address, (for example, firstname.lastname@example.org)
Password: your password
If problem still persists, contact your local GSC.
If I have subfolders created under my Inbox, are those folders synchronised to my mobile device as well?
Yes, but they are not synchronised by default. To select which subfolder you want to appear in your mobile device, you have to access your mobile device’s email option and select these folders individually.
If I de-select a subfolder on my mobile device, will the subfolder also be removed from my ello email account?
No, it will not.
