Email Addy without Own PC

  Kev.Ifty 22:46 10 Nov 2005

My Mate is going 'trekking' and we want to keep in touch.

I think the best way is via email.. My Mate does not have a computer at home so he has no Email address.

So i have set up a Google Address, given him the User Name and Password and the security question and answer.

Before he sets off. Is there anything else i need to do?

Cheers Kev.

PS: No i don't mean "pack factor 20"

Say, from the local library or an Internet café in the next town.

It will be too late to sort a misunderstanding if he is the other side of the world.

Good thinking!

I might have to tattoo the password to his forehead.(backwards of course) He is a tad forgetful.

A 'dry run' ;-)

I would actually go with Yahoo or Hotmail. I've been 'trekking' also and in some of these little Internet Cafes in the middle of nowhere they sometimes only have their system set up to access certain email services. Yahoo and Hotmail were 'always' available.

With sirpad, I'd suggest either Yahoo or Hotmail.

I'll also try Yahoo...
