Accessing my emails from overseas
Posted on 2001-06-09
I use MS Outlook 2000 for emails. While I am currently living in NZ, I will very shortly be moving overseas for a couple of years. I wish to maintain my current email address after moving.
Assuming I maintain my current ISP account here in NZ, (which gives me an email address of firstname.lastname@example.org, will I be able to access emails sent to that address from overseas?
Let's assume I am living in Japan. I open an account with an ISP in Japan so that I can get access to the internet in that country. Will I still be able to have outlook retrieve the emails from email@example.com.
I assume if I change my dialup network connection details to connect to my local isp in japan, once connected, Outlook will use the current smtp and pop3 addresses configured for my NZ account within Outlook, and go transparently to NZ and download my emails, just as if I had made the initial connection from within NZ.
Is that how it will work?
Grateful for confirmation that this is the way outlook works under these circumstances.
thanks for any light you can shed on this
