Question web based email

My ISP doesn't offer web based email and i would like to check my email remotely without using hotmail or yahoo. I have a static IP on my home system with all ports open I have a machine that has slackware 9 installed with apache installed but not configured or turned on i have setup a postfix relay server at work and would more then likely want to use that instead of sendmail is it possible for me to setup a website that could log onto my POP3 server and get my mail and display it on a web interface

You could look into maybe setting up your site with neomail or maybe hordemail.. they are web based interfaced email programs to view your email online thru a browser..

You should be able to setup a pop3 account in Evolution (or whatever Email Client you use) assuming that it is a pop3 enabled email account.

How about some specs on your email? Most likely it'll be setup like this:

pop3 setting (incoming):
smtp setting (outgoing):
enter your login name
it'll ask for password

Give it a shot... I don't know what email you're trying to connect to so I can't be more specific. If you're trying to get hotmail/yahoo mail this way it's not going to work. Yahoo doesn't allow it, err you gotta pay for it.
