another way to have all mail in one place but be able to access from any
computer (yes even a windoze box): install on the main machine vnc
then use the vncviewer (even dos versions available that fit on a floppy!)
to look at you email. all that is required is that the machine you are using for reading can
make a tcp/ip connection (yes even a 56K modem is fast enough for the vnc protocol)
and of course vnc is free & free (beer and speech).
