This is good
advice. Another good tip is to set up a Yahoo or Hotmail account to
check your gesn/earthlink account, but again leave mail on server. That
way you can check your mail while abroad using any computer that has web
What you should do is check the leave mail on server option in your
mail client "Tools>Accounts, Properties Button on your mail
account->Advanced Tab->Check, Leave Messages on Server", and then when
you get back home each week download all the mail to your
home computer normally. You will then have 2 copies.
Remember not to check both machines with the "leave mail on server" option
or I will start getting messages that your mailbox is full.
After this option has been check you can then mail yourself the
e-mails you wish to transfer to you home computer.
