Do you use your ISP's email, or do you use web-based mail?

Hello Rubikone-ga

Most email providers have a feature to remotely access your account
through webmail. You only need to be informed on what the URL and
procedures to access your account are and, of course, know your
username and password. For example, to access a Comcast account, you
should go to Comcast home page ( )
and click on the ?mail? link; that action will get you to the ?sign
in? page, and you?ll just need to enter your username and password to
access your web-based email account.

Now, if what you want is to remotely access the mailbox stored in your
desktop, you?ll need to have a remote desktop access feature installed
in your PC. For example, Windows XP Professional has this capability.
At Microsoft?s page ?Working Remotely with Windows XP?
( )
you?ll find links to all the information needed to operate this
feature, from setting it up
) to opening a remote session
). However, if you have a different Windows? operating system, there?s
the possibility of installing the remote desktop communication client

But there are also other options. For example, at Filesland?s Pc
Remote Control Software page
( ) you?ll
find some of the options available in the market to make your system
available to be accessed and used remotely.

I hope this information meets your needs. My Google search strategy was:

"remote desktop access"

email "remote desktop access software"

"remote email access"

Please do not hesitate to ask for clarification if you need so. Thanks for asking.
