You can upgrade the client by clicking here.

Select the operating system that you are running on your computer. Then download the appropriate client and run the program you've saved to your computer. This will guide you through the installation process. If you already have the BreadNet client on your computer, the new installation should find the relevant settings file so that all you will have to do after the installation is log in.

The setup information, should you need it, is:


Username: your username

Password: your password

When the upgrade is complete, BreadNet will support mail synchronization with smart phones, such as, the Blackberry and iPhone, as well as with the new iPad. This has been a frequently made request by the BreadNet community.
