Chapter 4. Connecting on the Road > Accessing E-mail from the Web

Accessing E-mail from the Web

Whenever you connect to the Internet on a computer other than your normal home or office computer, you’re faced with the challenge of grabbing e-mail from your normal ISP e-mail account. If you want to use Outlook Express or some other program to access your e-mail, you have to configure it to access your ISP’s e-mail servers—and some ISPs won’t let you access their servers unless you’re dialing in from an established account (which you won’t be).

The best option in these circumstances is to open a new e-mail account with a Web-based e-mail provider, such as Hotmail (www.hotmail.com) or Yahoo! Mail (mail.yahoo.com). A Web-based e-mail account can be accessed from any computer, using any Web browser; all you have to do is enter your username and password into a form on the Web page, and then you can access your account, no other setup necessary.
