Login Problems

If you login successfully, but are logged out on the next page view, then you most likely are having problems with cookies. Try clearing your browser's saved cookies and make sure that your browser is configured to accept all cookies from the domain "webmail.zol.co.zw".

If you have forgotten your password, use the "Password Reset" button, if provided, or contact your account administrator or ZOL support for assistance.

Social Login / OpenID:

If you have an account with a Social Media provider (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, Blogger, etc.) or and OpenID you can use it to Login to this portal once you have enabled this in your account. To do this:

  • Login first using your username and password.
  • Navigate to "Account > Security > Social Login/ OpenID" via the menu at the top of the page.
  • Click on "Add aa Spcial Login or OpenID" and select your provider (e.g. Twitter, Yahoo, Google, Facebook) or enter your actual OpenID address in the pop-up box.
  • Once you verify yourself with your provider, your OpenID will be listed there in your "Social Login/OpenID" page as "Verified".
  • You can then use that "Social Login / OpenID" button to login to this portal.


If you have enabled two-factor authentication, then you will be required to use the second factor after you have entered your username and password successfully. You will not be able to login without using both your username/password and your second factor.

Pre-Filling the Login Form

You can pre-fill your login form by constructing links to the login page with certain parameters in the query string. Add:

  • username=youremail@address — to have the Username field pre-filled with a specified username.
