Army Knowledge Online, https://akologin.us.army.mil/ known as AKO, is the official military worldwide intranet website used to connect soldiers and DA civilians through AKO webmail. It is said to be the world’s largest corporate intranet. AKO was developed in 2004 after soldiers supporting Operation Iraqi Freedom voiced their concerns and wanted to communicate with each other. Military users can receive and send messages and have access to all standard webmail features.

AKO webmail provides a secure method to transfer sensitive information through the internet for its users using a high level of encryption. AKO provides e-mail, stores files, chat, blogs, various location services, etc. One of its biggest assets is that it helps link all the websites together to provide information on medical, publications, regulations, and free anti-virus products.  AKO webmail provides a way for America’s Army at War, including places like Iraq, to communicate with each other and their loved ones. Once enlisted, army personnel are required to register for an AKO account. The best source for Army Knowledge Online akoarmymil.com/army-knowledge-online-ako/ information is here.

Although AKO is a very useful website, there are a lot of people who say that it is not very user friendly. Although AKO’s features may take some time to learn, once you do, you will find that it is a hub for many things that you will need to learn and know about throughout your military career.

The AKO intranet serves over 2 million registered users, including active duty, and retired service personnel and their family members. According to the website, AKO is the “Pivotal Tool” for use in “Transforming the Army to a knowledge-based organization”.

The mission of AKO is very specific; transform the army into an information-age by networking organizations on the internet through applications like AKO webmail.

Only those who are part of the military can register for an AKO webmail login. This includes active army members 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 AKO Webmail can be found on the military’s official website or ako-webmail.net.

To access your AKO webmail login, you must first enter the required details, such as your username and password standard to most online webmail platforms. There is a tutorial both in text and audio form that will help you if you have any problems logging in.
