View Full Version : USB Pendrive for email

26-02-2004, 02:58 PM
I can use my Notebook to access e-mail by plugging into a Telephone connection.
Is it possible to load an E-mail Programme complete with my ISP account details on a USB Pendrive Memory Stick and use this in another compute.? Would I then not incur that computer owner in any connection or user costs?
If possible suitable software please

Maybe this (http://postnuke.legend.com.au/postnuke/modules.php?op=modload&name=Downloads&file=index&req=getit&lid=65) will do the job for you with the PenMail software that comes with it.

Oops! Try this (http://postnuke.legend.com.au/postnuke/modules.php?op=modload&name=News&file=article&sid=1526&mode=thread&order=0&thold=0) link! The first one takes you straight to the PenMail software download.

Penmail connects to emails through the host computer. It does not appear to have a dial up capability. Connection and user costs are therefore on the host.

What you appear to want is not just an email program.
An email program uses the DUN (Dial up Networking) settings under Windows, and that will reallocate the costs back to the host settings.

You want a "portable DUN" on a key, that does not require any installing or configuring of the host hardware and that that works independently, and thats something quite different.

Good luck! As any good antivirus software heuristics should detect such activity as hostile (its almost the exact trait of a virus with its own SMTP engine)....
