Greetings and Welcome to CatholicNET
Quick Reference Sheet
(print out for reference)
A. Web based "csnmail" e-mail & extra page hosting.
Your e-mail address is: "theusernameassignedtoyou"@csnmail.net
To get your e-mail, go to URL- http://csnmail.net (There is also a link off the http://www.cleveland.catholicnet.com main page (right hand side) called "enter csnmail" .)
Enter your username, then password (changeable), then enter the service area
NOTE: IC e-mail accounts have additional IC addresses listed - click on the "Organization" button under the "Addresses" category. This will provide you the e-mail addresses for various diocesan wide Parish School and agency contacts.

Setting up your organization (e.g. a school) with CSNmail:
B. Maintaining the frontpage of your web-site.
Note: CatholicNET is our trade name. Since many folks know us as CatholicNET.com and others as CatholicServices.net, we have directed both names to the proper URL - so you can use either one.
1. Your website address is: (shorter to longer)
www.cleveland.catholicnet.com/"parish" or "school"/yourname or
2. To change your webside, go to:
Enter your username, then password, then enter the service area
3. File types acceptable to be upload to your site:
* Even if you know nothing about "html" programming, if you upload an ".htm" file you gain the benefits. By using a ".htm" file, your site will accommodate whatever browser it appears on, meaning that it will size itself to the viewer's monitor.
To convert most word processor files, simply open the file, then do a "save as html" & select ".htm" (or webpage) option to complete the conversion. For example, if you were using Word, this will change a .doc file to a .htm file.
NB - FILE NAMES should be 1) short, 2) " lower " case 3) contain NO SPACES or CONTROL CHARACTERS in the FILE NAME - very important! - you can only upload " .htm or .html " style files.
Not recommended anymore. While .txt files may be uploaded, they are no longer recommended given the ease of preparation of .htm files.
.txt files - save as ".txt file with line breaks" - (use the preformatted button when uploading to get the "wysiwyg" look)
.txt (dos) when using MS works
4. Picture & Graphic Files acceptable to be uploaded to your main site:
a) For the front page only, the file names must be image2.jpg (.gif), image3.jpg etc. - also use the pull down and reference the picture as image2, image3 etc.) This does not apply to main picture which is simply referenced as image1.
b) The above does not apply to the csnmail system where files are loaded by whatever name they have **
.jpg (photographs)** (note - file name info below to include "lower case" letters)
.gif (graphic files) ** (note - file name info below to include "lower case" letters)
** NB - FILE NAMES should be 1) short, 2) " lower " case 3) contain NO SPACES or CONTROL CHARACTERS in the FILE NAME - very important! - you can only upload " .htm or .html " style files.
** Note: If you scan in a photo, or use a file from a digital camera, you must downsize the photo file to about 10-50k. Most cameras and scanners produce 1 meg sized files.
