How do I access my E-mail account remotely while I'm away in Canada for an extended period? At my office here in town I use Microsoft Outlook Express through a Cox cable internet account. I'm not sure if I'll be able to get Cox service outside of the U.S.

Cox e-mail system is proprietary, which would require you to install the Cox software and configure a machine, such as a laptop, in order to get the mail in that account Cox services are limited to US only, therefore you might not be able to access it from other countries, including Canada
Microsoft has a Web based e-mail system (Hotmail)that is free and allows you to check mail from any Internet connected system HOTMAIL is at www.hotmail.com
