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. Dennis
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... On 9/22/06, Dennis & Marjorie True wrote: <Snip> -- http://www.novernae.comHome of the (currently lost) Wandering Sloth
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! ;-) On 9/21/06, Derek Bradford wrote: <Snip> -- Scott

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.
