I use outlook express via my ISP on my home desktop. When I work away from home how to I access my emails? Would signing up to say Squirrel webmail allow me to do this and would my emails still be in my outlook express in my desktop? Thanks

What ISP?

You can usually access your email from the ISP's web site

Set OE to leave a copy on the server and you will have it at home and the ISP's website untill you delete from the website.

FRuitbat,
Thanks for that. Can you tell me how to do that pls? Bit of a dumbo when emails are concerned.

Type mail2web.com into your browser address bar - insert your email address and password and access any new messages and/or send messages. When you return home your messages will still download to Outlook Express.

mail2web wants a password. Is this the password to my ISP or a new password for access to mail2web? Anyone knows?

Oh, and fromyour experience is this service secure? Thanks

It's your usual password for your ISP's email as you use on Outlook Express.

And yes, it's secure, but always remember to log out when you've finished the session.
