:thumbsup: Why is it always the youngest in the office who gets stuck with these issues? Ok, vent over.

I'm in a new office and we have an existing server. I have the Server IP, the ME Server, Mailbox, Modem name, where it's attached, the PC name, the domain name. Whew!

What I need to know is, we are setting up a temporary station down the street where some applications (can't be brought here, nope too easy!!!) are kept and we need to set up a PC there to access the e-mail at this location. This location has their own internet connection.

I'm not sure how to go about doing this. I can slightly recall setting up my PC (at home) with STMP or POP3 information, but I'm not sure how to do this with an existing internet connection.

And of course, my bosses expect miracles. They say; "We believe in you! You can do it!" I say; "You're too bloody cheap to have a tech come in."

Can anyone help a girl out?

Do you actually have to download the e-mail to the computer? Would using the web-mail interface be sufficient for your needs?

Not as far as I can tell-but it could still be done, I'm just not sure of how to do it. All the PC's in the office are interfaced into one server, which I don't have passwords to change the access to. Otherwise I'm fairly sure this would be easy; add an access and then subscribe user name and PW and then we're set.
