Check home email
Hi, Christine -
Without knowing what kind of email service you have, we are at a disadvantage. I've included how both client and webmail work and also offer a workaround for non-webmail access.
If you have 'webmail', then you can check your email from anywhere in the world with internet access. IE: gmail: just go to gmail and sign in with your gmail address and your password. I am assuming, however that your question is not that easy!
If you have non-webmail and you use a client at home like Thunderbird or Outlook, I assume you go into your email client and all your email has been downloaded to your client. Under those circumstances, obviously, you are not able to check this online elsewhere than your home. UNLESS...
You sign into your Verizon account online with your Verizon (example - could be Fairpoint or any other internet service that gives you your email address) and your email is now accessible anywhere you have an internet connection. Keep in mind that you HAVE TO CHECK THAT YOU WANT YOUR EMAILS TO STAY ON THE SERVER ONCE THEY ARE DOWNLOADED or your emails will not be resident on your online account once they go into your pc client at home.
There is another way (and preferable imho). You can create a gmail account and have all your emails from your internet service provider account FORWARD to your gmail account. Then, you can go into gmail anywhere in the world and all your email will be there. You don't even have to worry about making sure emails stay on your server (thereby saving space and not having to clear out your old emails online at your server site)
Hope this helps. Peace. Michele
