OK.... I am ready to take the leap into CABLE. I have been using dial-up on my two computers (same ISP account... two different locations) and now we will be putting in a ROUTER to link all PCs in this house, mine and my roomates...to the CABLE.

My concerns are as follows. I have been using OUTLOOK EXPRESS on my computer here and at the other location to access my email from my dial-up ISP.

I will still be using dial-up from the other PC at the other place but is there anyway I will be able to access my email from my old ISP server on this new CABLE hookup?

I really like OUTLOOK EXPRESS.... and have used it but I am concerned that I cannot get into my old dial-up ISPs mail servers using this CABLE hookup.

Any ideas...suggestions about this because this is the one thing that makes me hesitate about hooking my PC into this ROUTER is the way my email programs can be accessed.

Thanks in advance

You should be able to access the old account from any pc, as long as you fill in the incoming and outgoing servers and password

If you want to keep using your old ISP's e-mail, you'll have to keep paying for it.

The cable modem is just a different way to access the internet. You can get to EVERYTHING with a cable modem that you can get to with a dial-up connection.

Some ISPs will allow you to retain your email address for a few bucks a month.

Or you could get a FREE e-mail address through Yahoo! or Hotmail, and then you'll never need to notify everyone of your e-mail address again if you decide to change ISPs.
