it depends what you mean by "check my email" - do you want to be able to
send mail as well?
assuming you're using something like netscape communicator to do your
browsing, you can connect to ftoomsh.progsoc.uts.edu.au using IMAP
and read your mail that way...
alternatively, if you want to make life harder for yourself, you could
use a) a java applet with an IMAP client embedded in your web page
b) some sort of CGI to read your mail. you will probably need
to use some of the perl mail modules - Mail::Internet , etc -
found at a CPAN site (eg ftp://ftp.netinfo.com.au/pub/perl/CPAN/)
b) is probably more complicated - but should be able to work with *any*
browser, including lynx.
