The Daily Ping

Not a toilet in the country has not been affected by the Ping in one way or another.

September 23rd, 2000


When I’m on the road (which is infrequently), I don’t lose the desire tocheck my e-mail frequently (unless I’m on a beach or something, in whichcase it’s easy). So, in general, I check it via the Web and occasionallyvia telnet.

My favorite web-based mailchecker is Mail2Web, recommended by theever-useful Its generalfunctionality and layout are nice, but what’s even nicer is that it offersthe option of 128-bit encryption. Additionally, they offer News2Web, a web-based Usenet readerthat I have not yet tried.

Has anyone else found any other particularly useful options for checkinge-mail remotely? -ram

My ISP provides the ability to check my e-mail on the web already, so... I just use that. :P

Paul -- I pretty much Ureach for it's fax/voice mail features... I've never really used it for checking my e-mail. Not a bad thought... but Mail2Web doesn't actually store anything on their server, which is nice for periodic e-mail checking... seems like Ureach would be a good option for daily checking... or maybe I'm just making things up. :)

I think you're making things up.

In seriousness, I use uReach daily while I'm at work - it's just plain easier than telnetting in (probably safer, too.) The fax feature is a great bonus; I don't use the voicemail.

Nevertheless, Mail2Web looks nice and speedy.

I have used and is fast supports gmail and hotmail as well and supports SSL
secure login and is very easy to use and fast. supports secure login, supports almost any mail server, however im not sure about hotmail or yahoo, ive never tried. This is fast and friendly as well.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
