Can I check PAYG email account via USB ADSL Modem?

  GibsonSt19 20:33 27 Jan 2004

Hiya, my ISP is BTOpenworld (BBand) however I do have an old email address which Madasafish still receives emails to.

They also advise that the only way I can collect these messages is by dialing into Madasafish.

Am I able to use my ADSL modem to do this, or does it have to be a dialup modem?

If you have the Madasafish POP3 and SMTP settings you could try setting up an account in OE and see what happens.

Tools>Accounts>Add then follow the instructions.

Just don't know how to connect to madasafish PAYG via my USB modem. It says 'Verifying username and password', then spits out an Error 691. :(
