How can my parents get email?

  jacksony 09:47 06 Dec 2004


I am currently spending some time overseas and I want to send email to my parents who know absolutely nothing about the internet, and probably cant even work a mouse.

My dad has sky tv from a satellite, and I was wondering if he can use this to somehow read email,

or failing that,

is there a mega-simple device on the market that would enable them to get email?

It would have to be extremely easy to use and also pretty cheap.

Thats an excellent suggestion, thanks, Gongoozler!

If anyone else can think of another option also, please post it.
