TIP:  E-mail on the road. 

LOCATION: Istanbul, Turkey



Managing multiple accounts.

Want to travel, but cannot figure out
how to manage all your e-mails accounts?
Most people lose their ability to e-mail the minute
they leave home. Because ONLY their personal
computer will work...
They must have a their own ball and chain
they carry called a
"Laptop" that enables them to answer e-mails.
No laptop. No e-mail. Why? This is just too

E-mail is a dramatic advancement in the
world of communication.
An asynchronous method to be a friend
or answer your employees questions.
The internet is everywhere.

But... How?
Want to keep your personal address
separate from your business address?
Want to walk up to any connected computer and
communicate with the world

One great challenge of travels is to send
and receive e-mails around the world.
Sending and receiving e-mails from friends,
while being on the other side of the planet
is both difficult and confusing. Every year
this gets a little easier and there is a temptation
to ditch the my laptop completely.

I recommend using a Yahoo.com e-mail account
when traveling or at home. Yahoo is more versatile,
mobile, and the interface is technically superior
to your "company" account that comes with a nerd from
the IT department that says theirs is the best.
Is your business account really the best?

Can you walk up to any internet connected
computer in the world and check your e-mail?
If the answer is NO. Why?

There are 2 biggies in the world of free
e-mail accounts. Hotmail.com and Yahoo.com
There is not a dramatic difference between
the two, but after many years of having both
I have discovered a PAID feature that is
outstanding with Yahoo Mail. And the solution
to a big e-mail dilemma. How to manage
multiple accounts?

I signed up for "Mail Plus" a while back.
It cost 30 dollars a year.
This was the result of losing e-mails
because my host server for HoboTraveler.com
went down again. The result is that all incoming
e-mail bounces back to the sender.

Yahoo.com is more dependable, and if their
machines are busy e-mail appears to go into a holding
pattern until they can be processed.

But.... I would have signed up a long time
ago if I would have known.
I can MANAGE all 4 of my e-mail accounts
from one place.

I can receive all the e-mails in one box.
Filter the spam. Delete the Trojan type virus and
protect my personal computer.
Than REPLY using the correct reply address
I choose and not the default.

This is the big deal if you have a lot of
e-mail accounts. Say you have one for work
and one for home. You can keep them separate.
Collect or download to and work in one box.
Online on any connected computer in the world.

I can clean up my world online, than download
to my personal computer using the account
as a pop server.

I recommend Yahoo Mail.

Work offline or online.
FREE or paid.
Pop & SMTP

I understand this is a little technical.
But for those of you with the same problem.
This is the solution.

Yahoo is not paying me to say this.
I just need to tell someone about the ability
to manage 4 accounts at one time.
Plus how would I get paid from Yahoo?
Getting a personal e-mail back from Yahoo
is probably impossible.

Life is good.

Just another day in Paradise!
Be a Hobo, and leave your mark.
