Hmm. I had tried to get to Hotmail from Nethopper and it did not work. Is
Yahoo the difference, or Newt's Cape? Can anybody confirm if Hotmail will
work with Newt's Cape?

Sorry Kenneth, but this is an easy one to explain, or maybe I don't
understand the question. I have used Web based mail exclusively for more
than 2 years now, and before that, regularly. I work on many machines, in
many locations. Having local mail is definately the fastest, more pleasing
way, but with the simplicity of having all my mail on hotmail, I will take
the cut in speed. Actually, I would really like to find sometime to see if
one of the XDrive servers or similar places would work to have each of the
computers I work on access the same volume of information/directory path.

Am I missing something here? Have you figured out a way to get the benefit
of remote mail with local mail servers?
