What is AKO Webmail?
Army Knowledge Online,commonly known as AKO, is the official military worldwide intranet portal that is used for connecting soldiers and DA civilians through AKO webmail. AKO is said to be the world’s largest military intranet and serves over 2 million registered users including currently active personel, retired army members, and their family members. AKO is the “Pivotal Tool” for use in “Transforming the Army to a knowledge-based organization”. The mission of Army Knowledge Online is very specific; transform the us army into the current technology age by connecting military members on the internet through applications like AKO webmail.
AKO was developed in 2004 because soldiers supporting Operation Iraqi Freedom voiced their concerns and wanted to communicate with their friends and family. Military users can receive and send emails and have access to all common webmail features.
AKO webmail allows users to transfer sensitive information through the internet for its users using a very high level of encryption. AKO provides e-mail, file storage, chat, blogs, and various location services. One of AKO’s biggest assets is that it helps link all the AKO users together to provide information on health related questions, publications, army rules, and free anti-virus products. AKO webmail provides a way for America’s Army at War, including army personel in places like Iraq, to communicate with each other and their family members. Once enlisted, all soldiers are required to register for an AKO account.
Although AKO is a very useful web portal, there are a lot of people who say that it is not beginner friendly. Although AKO’s features may take some time to learn, once you do get a hang of the features, you will find that it is a hub for many very useful services that you will need to know and learn about throughout your USA military career.
Only those who are or were part of the military and their family members can register for an AKO webmail account. This includes active army personel and army reserves, national guards, as well as retired army members and the guests of all personnel of the army. All account information for setting up an AKO webmail can be found on the US military’s official website or ako-webmail.net. There is a tutorial both in text and audio form that will help you out if you have any problems logging in.
If you weren’t able to access the online web tutorial you can check the AKO FAQ’s page as well as information regarding resetting your AKO webmail password. You can also get additional information by calling 1-877-AKO-USER or visiting ako-webmail.net.
