How can you check your Outlook Outlook Express email online on another computer,  when you’re away from your computer – on holiday, at a friend’s house or at work?

Here are three ways to do this:

  1. Use Webmail to check your most recent email 
  2. Leave a copy of the last few week’s email on the web and access it using Webmail
  3. Use web-based email provider like Gmail to keep a copy of all your emails on the web

1. Use Webmail to check your most recent email

Does your Email Provider give you Webmail access?

If so you can read and respond to your most recent emails.

This method will NOT show you your old email – just the email that has arrived since you last checked your email with Outlook Express.

If your email address is somebody@nulltalktalk.net search Google for talktalk webmail

Take the last bit of your email address (after the “@” symbol) and google with that

 

To Log in to Webmail will need your email User Name and Password

Put in your email address and password to log in – if you can’t remember your password click on the “Password Reminder” link

If you still can’t remember them, you’ll have to open Outlook Express on your computer, go to Tools –> Options –> Accounts and then go to the Server tab of the dialog box that comes up:

Here the Account Name (or User Name) is “Customer”.

If you can’t remember your password – try downloading Password Revealer and it will show you what lies behind the asterisks.

You can also use Mail2Web, as Christian points out below: 

I use http://www.mail2web.com for checking new email whilst I’m away from my desk. It doesn’t matter who your provider is for the most part – as long as you know your email address and password you can check your email from a web browser.

2. Leave a copy of the last few week’s email on the web, and access it using Webmail

If you want to see your recent email in your Webmail – say from the two weeks or the last month, you’ll have to tweak Outlook Express on your computer.

Go to Tools –> Options –> Accounts and then go to the Advanced tab of the dialog box that comes up.

Tick “Leave a copy of messages on the server” and tick “Remove from server after X days”. You can decide how many days-worth of mail you’d like to keep on the web to read using Webmail when you don’t have your computer with you. 30 days is a good suggestion.

3. Use Gmail to keep a copy of all your emails on the web

The email account has been added

Use your normal email address from within Gmail

This is a good solution – you can sign up for a Free Gmail Account and use Mail Fetcher to pull a copy of all of your emails into Gmail.

That way you keep a copy of every email you receive and you can access it any time from the web from any computer by going to www.gmail.com.

Gmail currently allows about 10gb of storage, so it will take quite a while to fill up your Gmail account.

This is a good backup for your Outlook Express email – if you lose your computer or it gets stolen, you still have all your email.

This way you’ll be able to check your email online, as you now have a copy of all your emails, stored in Gmail.
