    I'm a Merchant Marine and never in the same place long. Do I need to find the
    POP3, SMTP code everywhere, with every different ISP? ( airports, coffee
    shops, etc) My current ISP is Quest and I use Yahoo for email, but I start
    travelling tomorrow. I haven't even found Quest's info yet.
    Any help for a sailor out there?

  2. When traveling it is easiest to use one of the web based email services such
    as Hotmail, Yahoo Mail etc.

    This way you can get your email from any place you can connect to the

    You can get a Gmail account and use that to send with. Keep your regular
    mail server to receive email.

    What you really need is to register a domain name for yourself, then
    purchase POP3/SMTP service (email) from the provider for your hosting -
    ensure that it includes the ability to send email from their servers.

    With this, from anywhere in the world, you can send/recv email at your
    domain name through your hosting provider. Ask them if they have
    encrypted connections available if you need that level of security.

    I travel all over also and find that having my own domain name and email
    service means I can send/recv email from any network in just about every
    place in the world.

    Many ISPs that offer POP accounts also have web based accounts for people
    that travel. I have Time Warner Roadrunner and can check mail at home and
    also anywhere there is access to the Internet. Call your ISP and see if they
    offer one.

    If you use Yahoo for email then just use the Yahoo web mail. Doesn't matter
    then what ISP you connect to...

  9. As long as you can connect to the Internet you can get your mail from Yahoo
    as it's web-mail based.
