Re: NTLK Web based email on the Newt

Yahoo Mail supports use of the POP3 protocol, meaning that you can actually
download your mail to your Newton and work on replies offline, at your
leisure, instead of online and worrying about draining battery and use of
your ISP account (unless you're using a free account).

Yahoo Mail can be accessed at and for
incoming and outgoing servers. Since I do check my mail from the web when I
don't have my Newton handy, and to keep specific mail available permanently,
I choose to Leave Mail on Server in the mail prefs.
