Mozilla Mail - Taking ur 'slt' profile on the road

just wondering if anyone could help me out with this one!

i need to be able to take all my old mail (mozilla salt profile) on the road with me so i can access old emails.

Ideally i would like to copy my slt profile to a USB key and have some sort of client on the key where i can read the emails from the salt file.

main reason is that i will be accessing public computers and i need to access old mail from home.

anyone got any ideas on how this may be done?

I normally use 'popcorn' on the USB key to access mail but that does not help me if i need to access old emails at home.

thanks for any ideas!

well.. if the USB key is big enough (i.e 64mbs. Could work with 32, not sure though) you could just mount it and install mozilla to the key. That assumes you are going to be viewing the mail on a linux computer. If you want to view it on win pcs, I'd look for a cross-platform lightweight mail app.

Do you just want to take your profile with you? Can you not access your e-mail from anywhere on the net? I just put my old mail in its own folder and I can access it from anywhere their is a computer. Maybe I am not understanding you.
There is a mozilla for windows also.
