Your e-mail: anytime, anyplace, anywhere

This content is 19 years old. I don't routinely update old blog posts as they are only intended to represent a view at a particular point in time. Please be warned that the information here may be out of date.

For some time now, I’ve been using the web service for reading my e-mail when I’m away from home.

The basic service doesn’t require registration (no details are stored as it is basically an HTTP wrapper for POP3 and IMAP4 servers), but registered users can use a customised mail2web site with multiple e-mail accounts, favourite newsgroups, frequently used links and even their own image.

Now the guys at mail2web have made the service even better, with WAP and PDA versions of the website. In an earlier post, I gave details for connecting a PDA to the Internet using the Vodafone GPRS service (the principle is the same whoever your mobile carrier). Now I can access my e-mail on a page that is formatted to suit the PDA screen.
