Using your web browser, surf on over to https://console.mxlogic.com. Enter your email address, and your password.

For most users, this password is the same password as your mail account password. However, in some instances, this may have changed. Our system syncs up with your mail server for it’s password, but if it has been more than 4 hours since you have accessed your mail server since it went down, that password won’t work. A member of our service team will either reset your password or advise you of the new password.

It is not necessary to delete unwanted items in the spam filter that you do not want. Items will expire automatically after 7 days.
