TWC Mail is very important for people who have subscribed to the different packages of Time Warner Cable internet. To get it into perspective, the TWC Internet was bought over by Charter Communications, hence it is now referred to as Spectrum. However, it still remains as one of the biggest ISPs in the US, providing vast plans.
One of the main things that have pulled people to the TWC internet apart from its reliability and the friendliness in price is that it doesn’t come with any form of contract as such you can simply subscribe and hit the road without any fear of any extra charges when you want to part ways.
TWC Mail and Webmail
With the TWC email which is also known as Spectrum email, it does not come automatically to customers, hence if you need one you will need to create an email account. To create one, here are ways to do it:
- Go to Spectrum.net and then sign in using your username and password.
- At the top left corner, go to the menu and click on “Manage Account”.
- What you want to do next is to select “Internet”
- Click on “Create Email Address.”
- Select “Create Mailbox” to confirm it.
- When you are done, click on “Finish”
- Select “Go to Mailbox” when you receive the notification that the account has been created.
After creating the email account, that will serve as the primary account to which you may decide to create other sub accounts. The importance of creating more email accounts under the primary or master account is that it allows you to give some control of the account or your subscription to other members of your household.
