what kind of system are you using remotely first off ?

and never use telnet, unsecure, I would suggest ssh.

you can use a program PuTTY which I prefer to use while in windows to ssh to my linux machine.

basically if you can ssh into your linux box.. you should be able to do anything you want on your box. its like sitting pretty much right in front of your box with all the access you need.
also just noticed your using slack 8. if you did a full install of slack, it should come already setup with the ssh ready for use on your machine, all you would have to do is ssh into your box from a remote location..

it would depend how you have your mail setup and what program you use to get your mail.
