 Free e-mail account question.
Are there any free email account services that can be accessed by telnet? I
don't have actual web access at work just usenet, telnet, ftp and company
email. I used to have an ISP that ran Red Hat Linux 6.2 on their server and
it was real easy to log in and check my mail. I can't do that with
roadrunner. :-(
Thanks,
Mordak

Could you use fetchmail?  (Retrieve POP3 messages?)  I suppose you should
be able to download your messages into a single file that way and browse
through with the general mail utils..  Sending more out would be a different
issue tho...  (Yahoo, I believe, still supports POP for dl of msgs...)

You could have a cron job that runs fetchmail, and a mail server on
your home (presumably Linux) computer, and sshd (not telnetd unless
you like having people hack into your system) so you could check from
work, assuming work lets you run ssh.

Do a web search for 'free shell' or check this list:

But you should be using ssh instead of telnet, if you can.
Putty is a free Windows ssh client that fits on a floppy.

Thanks for all the suggestions but my problem is my work uses Windows NT
4.0 w/ SP6 so the only way I can get to an outside mail account is with
telnet. They have a policy against installing our own software and I don't
think the SysAdmin would do it for me.

I did find a couple of free shell accounts sites that I will look into
further.
Again, thanks for the help,
Mordak

Thanks I signed up with theunixplace.com, it's a tad slow but workable.
Atleast I'll have the mail access I want.
Thanks David,
Mordak

Just in followup about Putty...  (Ie. ssh for windows)

The really nice thing about Putty in a situation such as
yours is that it is small enough to keep on a floppy, and
furthermore, it does not need to be installed anywhere.  No
shared libs (dll) etc. so you can run it off of that same
floppy.  Plus, it has a *very* good xterm emulation, as far
as I have been able to tell...  Better then some other
commercial ssh clients for win that I have used...

Hey again Kris,
I downloaded putty and the other clients. I tried them on my Win98 box. The
do work well. Thanks for the heads up.
