Re: [Nmh-workers] Email access while traveling?

What do you all do to access your email while traveling?

For the last 3 years (since I got an OG droid) I've had this
procmail rule:

   # First: exclude lots of stuff, sent to low-pri folders
   # Now: Anything sent directly to me
   * ^TO(list-of-addresses-that-match-my-inbox)
      # Put a copy in my AAA inbox, handled by Dovecot (IMAP server).
      # On my cell phone I have AAA defined as a priority level 1 folder
      :0 c

      :0 w: .incoming.lock

I also do a similar thing for another folder which I consider
high priority: shove into regular MH folder, CC into Dovecot folder.
I use K-9 Mail, not the regular mail app, for reasons I can no longer
remember. I think it was the folder handling.

"What about the rest of my 4,000 folders?" Shrug. I use my phone
when out of the house and when traveling (vacation, work). In none
of those cases do I care about mailing lists. This system has
worked well for me, but may not fit everyone's needs.

Setting up dovecot is left as an exercise for the reader.
