I don't see that this should be impossible, but you won't be able to do it through PPP, I suspect. You need to get hold of a copy of Zterm (available at www.shareware.com in the Mac directory) and this gives you the chance to dial up directly to the provider through your modem, and you should then be able to read your mail using the standard UNIX emailer (PINE) or ELM.  You might need to ring your provider and ask them if there is any reason why you can't get direct access to your account on their mainframe computer in this way, and what the precise instructions are for doing it.

If this doesn't make sense to you, then tell me what you don't understand and I'll try to frame the questions you'll need to ask your provider.

I'll leave this as a comment though I believe it contains the answer. If anyone else is reading this one, feel free to come in and make further suggestions and to tell me if I have it wrong, because I am not absolutely certain this is what you are looking for.

I think you have a normal account and can dial-in with ppp. So it is really no problem. You can use Claris Emailer or Eudora or any other Email-Application and ppp/mactcp. In these applications you have to know the internet-adress of your mail-servers (pop and smtp) but you should know them or can ask them at at & t.
ppp/mactcp can you get from apple if you don´t have it yet in your system.
All programs should work fine even with very low system resources.
