    I was wondering if it is possible to send and receive email without access to the internet? I have heard of the mailstation but that is a seperate unit and I would like to use my computer. Thanks.

    Years ago Juno had a email system and phone numbers all over the place that were local you could use to get on and email. I used it about a year or so before I got online.
    You have to check all these boxes or uncheck them like I did on things you like so your get ads on things but I only seen a ad I think once. But they was new back then and that was how they started out and now I don't you can get any then free from them. I still have some where on a floppy the Juno program that is very small but don't know if it would work but I would say it would not.

    NOT possible. You need some kind of transmission medium to send/receive emails. Your computer must communicate with the mail server to do this. You can't do that any more than you can browse the Internet WITHOUT Internet access. It's like making phone calls without any type of phone service. There is no way to do this. Sorry........

    Have to disagree on that note. Whether it is free or not, they were asking if it's possible to get email without being online. The answer is no.
