Can’t access Ako Webmail from home?
If your home IP address is blocked by Ako Webmail, the following steps might help:
1. Open a terminal window (command prompt) and type “dig”. Hit Enter twice.
The output should look like this:
; <<>> DiG 9.7.3 <<>> firstname.lastname@example.org ;; global options: +cmd ;; Got answer: ;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 55022 ;; flags: qr rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 2, AUTHORITY: 0, ADDITIONAL: 0
2. Scroll down until you see something like this:
;; QUESTION SECTION: ;email@example.com. IN A ;; ANSWER SECTION:
firstname.lastname@example.org. 604800 IN CNAME gmail-smtp-msa.l.google.com.
gmail-smtp-msa.l.google.com. 300 IN A 22.214.171.124
3. Copy the IP address (in this case, 126.96.36.199) and paste it into your browser’s address bar instead of email@example.com. Hit Enter
4. If you see the following page:
Google Apps Error Please try again.
