Topic: OT gmail invites Thanks! (6 msgs / 89 lines)
1) From: Dennis & Marjorie True
Thanks for all the invites for gmail ....only problem is the ship has 
blocked all web based email for security and I leave for 7 months in 
less than 2 weeks... so I could set it up but not check it until I 
return.... I will contact my ISP tomorrow and see if I can figure out 
why they are not getting thru. also I get the digest to teh ship mail so 
I will catch up on everything i missed.

Gmail has pop3 access...  You can claim your account and then set it
up for pop3 and check it that way.  No web interface required...

He'll want to check even that, though. I believe gmail only uses an SSL POP3
connection on port 995, so they might well block that as well!
I remember fondly the early e-mail system we had in play on superb HP minis
back in the 80s. Better than PINE!    ;-)

If he is on the NMCI like me, they block everything they can think of.  In
addition, you sign a very restrictive user agreement.  If you want to see an
example of someone being put over the barrel, look at the NAVY and its deal
with EDS for IT services, known (not-so) fondly as "The NMCI".
Phew.
No coffee this morning yet; going to be firing up the roasting and blasting
through some colombian probably.

Subscribe to the list using the gmail address. Setup a filter that grabs all
email from sweetmarias.com and have the filter forward the email to your
address (the one you can access from aboard ship).
Clunky, but it should work.
