E mails, is this possible?

  Bald Eagle 20:23 11 Oct 2006

I spend 8 months a year in Brittany and 4 in England. My daughter and I spend about £18/month between us on English ISP's. I will offer to give her my monthly fees and she can upgrade to broadband and I will cancel my English ISP. Can we then run an email account each that only we have access too? ie I can't see hers and she can't see mine.Also would I still be able to view mine out here in Brittany?

I'm slightly confused by your question.

On the one hand you say "I will cancel my English ISP"

and then "would I still be able to view mine out here in Brittany?"

Who will be your ISP in Brittany - a French one??

What I mean is :- my daughter will then be on broadband, hopefully with several email addresses. One of these will be for me. It is this email I want to access from France. I want email addresses for England and France to help me keep track easily where jobs are.

OK. I'll assume that you will have a separate ISP in France to that used by your daughter in England.

Assuming you know the log-in and password details for your daughter's ISP, you should be able to access your e-mails using that ISP's web-mail service.

Sorry, Jackcoms, I'm a better Industrial Chemist than computer expert (I wish). Yes I have an ISP in France. Will do what you suggest. Many thanks for helping a computer dimwit!

I can see, unless I'm missing something, is that you wont have any internet access for the 4 months that you are in England.

Also, if you have the neccessary server/password details you may be able to get you emails without it having to be webmail, into outlook express, for example.
