Operating an e-gold account
To operate your account go to: https://www.e-gold.com/acct/login.html which should be in your Bookmarks or Favorites in your browser.
In here type in your new account number, You can either type in your Passphase (not recommended), copy and paste it from another doc or use the SRK system:
To use the SRK system simply select the SRK icon and a pop up box will appear. Instead of typing in your Passphase you simply select the characters in the pop up box and the system inserts your Passphase for you. This is a secure method of preventing anyone from picking up your Passphase or password from your keystrokes.
Then select the login button and you will be presented with your Information /Configuration screen:

Sufficient to know that with the current settings you will be able to login to your account from the same computer each time, The PIN request will only apply if you log in from another computer.
At the top of every screen within your account you will see a menu. From this menu you can log out or go to any area of your account:

and other information. One simply selects the option one would like to see and then view detailed summary if required or just a summary. Here I have asked for a summary of Payments Received and Payments Made with the dates from the 1st to the 20 th of March 2005.
Selecting a detailed summary I would see this following. Of course you would see what is in your account.
To receive funds into your e-gold account a simply matter of giving your account number to the person or company who will be making the spend to your account. Ensure you give them the correct account number and include the account name as an additional verification. Don't give them your Passphase!
