? HOW TO read internet email over PPP to Service Provider

Post by Mark Shacklett » Mon, 25 Sep 1995 04:00:00

Hi all.

My internet email is sitting in my Mail directory on my
home drive at my Internet Service Provider's location.

I want to simply access that mail and read it from my
linux machine (preferrably running X) at home.  I don't
want it moved to my local machine because I need to be
able to read the same mail from an NT machine at work,
when I dial into my ISP from there.

In other words, I want to be able to read, write, delete
mail from both locations, all working on the remote mail

Is there a Linux mail reader that can be configured to
read mail from my ISP location, over my PPP connection?
Can xmailtool do this, if I set it up properly? (that would
be sweet!)

If you know how to do this, or any way this sort of thing can
be done in linux, I would greatly appreciate knowing how.

Thank you in advance,

        I am currently running Linux Kernel version 1.1.18. and I would
like to know how to set up PPP to connect to my internet service provider.
        I also been try to compile newer version of the kernel, but can't
get the kernel to recognize my Sound Blaster CD-Rom driver(Sony CDU33a).
Anyone can send me mail has any advice.
