Too much mail to handle? These services should help...


2. POP3 services: These services allow you access to a POP3 mail server, which allows you to download your messages to the local PC and read and reply to them at your leisure. Not only is this approach flexible, because it allows you to use any email client such as Eudora, Internet Mail, Outlook, Netscape Mail et al, but it has the added advantage of allowing you to save messages on your local PC and does not require you to be online to reply to your mail. All you need to do is connect to the Net, download your mail and disconnect. Once you have composed your replies, you simply reconnect and send them all at once.

Allow us to confuse you further by informing you that POP3 is simply the Post Office Protocol version 3, one of the two standard email protocols, the other being SMTP or Simple Mail Transfer Protocol.

3. Mail forwarding services: These services assign you an email address but do not provide you with any interface to read and reply to your mail. All mail sent to this address is automatically forwarded to another user-specified address [Programmers, think infinite loop and giggle maliciously]. While the usefulness of such a service is certainly limited, it has the unique advantage of giving you a permanent email address; so if you change your ISP, all you need to do is update the forwarding information and your mail will automatically be redirected to your new email address. Simple and transparent, wot?

4. Intelligent email services: These are the services which not only reply to your mail for you, but also bring you breakfast in bed, clean the dishes, cook dinner, whisper sweet nothings in your ear and wash the car every Sunday. Now for the bad news: we haven't come across even one of this breed yet!!

OK, enough of the chitchat...can we cut to the chase now?
