Checking Email from Remote Locations
If you are traveling or are away from your primary computer and would like
to check your Hevanet email, you have a number of options.
Depending on your situation, try some of the following techniques.
Use Hevanet's WebMail
WebMail is a Web-based
email interface. You can check your Hevanet email from any browser anywhere
in the world. All you need is a connection to the Internet. A friend's
computer, an Internet Cafe or the Public Library are all
Long Distance Dialing
If you are traveling with your laptop computer and it is already configured
for Hevanet, simply dial the Hevanet access number as a long distance call.
You should be able to retrieve your email with a minimum of time and
Configure a friend's email to your settings
This method requires you to have access to a computer that has a connection
to the Internet. In the settings or preferences of the email program, change
the POP3 server name to pop.hevanet.com and the user or account
to your Hevanet login name. You will also need to know your Hevanet
login password. You should also check the advanced setting to "Leave
messages on Server". This way, your messages will still be there
for you when you return. Don't forget to change the settings back to the
original, or your friend will continue to get your email!

programs, see our web page on the subject.
Using a Free Web-based Email Service
Anoter option is to sign up for a free email account at one of the big
web sites. We recommend Yahoo Mail(www.mail.yahoo.com)
or Hot Mail(www.hotmail.com).
They are very easy to set up and you can enable both to access your Hevanet
email account. When you are in your Yahoo Mail, click Options
to set up for checking your Hevanet POP email. The four pieces of
information you will need are:
You will be able to access your Hevanet email from any Web Browser
on any computer connected to the Internet.
Mail Server = pop.hevanet.com
Username = your Hevanet login name
Password = your Hevanet password
Port Number = 110
Have a good trip!
