Enabling Remote Access allows you to send email from your Shaw email address while connecting outside of the Shaw network. This is primarily used with mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets and laptops. The Remote Access feature in Webmail 2.0 will allow you to check your email password to confirm that it meets the minimum security requirements before enabling it.

Security Requirements

 

Your email password must meet the "OK" password requirement or higher. For information on how to make a password that meets these requirements, please see the following: Password Requirements for My Account and @shaw.ca Email Accounts

 

If your password does not meet the above requirements, you will need to change your email password to successfully enable Remote Access. Even if Remote Access is enabled, if your password does not meet the requirements above, you will encounter issues configuring your mobile device with your Webmail account.
