E-mail from another PC

Can someone give me an idea of how to check my e-mail from another PC. Do I just set up an account on the remote pc using my pop/smtp, e-mail address
username and password, as in setting up a new account. Or do I have to do something with the phone number as well. Is this the same if trying from abroad.

I don't know what ISP you are with but just about all of the major ones allow you to access and send e-mails from links on their home page. Suggest you take a look.

You could also run i.scribe from a floppy click here .
generally you can receive POP mail from other machines, but not send unless you are logged onto your own account. With location specifice services like Wanadoo anytime, this could cause problems, so quacks suggestion is probably the best way of handling it.

If you are using Outlook Express, This is how I access my emails on two PC's.

Your new PC has to have an internet link and your emails details have to be entered onto it.

An easy way using your old PC, in OE, is Tools, Internet Accounts, Export, and Save onto a floppy disk.

On the new PC in OE do the same, but Import your settings from the floppy disk.

Also on the first PC in OE, Tools, Internet Accounts, Properties, Advanced, and tick: "Leave a copy of message on Server", also tick "Remove from Server after say 7 days. This enables both computers to access all emails.
