Re: NTLK Free website to provide reading POP3 email?

Hi Laurent,

Hmmm...I'm not sure I know what you are wanting. Browser enabled mail is
not the same as POP3 email. The former provides a front-end for your email
to read and dispose of it without ever downloading to your machine, whereas
the latter engages the server to download your email to your machine for
reading. I *thought* that most of the email clients (EnRoute, SimpleMail,
and Eudora) have proxy settings to get out past a firewall.

Try I'm setting up a site there (free -
unlimited space - no ads) and they provide both POP3 (incoming) and SMTP
(outgoing) email access as well as a web browser interface for email that
doesn't use frames. Works for me...

Right behind our firewall, here, I can't access any POP3 email account I
have. As someone pointed out some time ago, Hotmail doesn't work. Is
there any other free service that would be accessible from a browser
(NetHopper) and would let you download your POP3 email?

Thanks in advance for any suggestion!
