To remotely access mail you must have a POP or IMAP server installed on the mail server. There are several possibilities, qpopper, Univ of Wash. IMAP, Cyrus IMAP, etc. The Univ. of Washington IMAP implementation is distributed with most flavors of Linux and is pobably the easiest to use. All that's necessary is for you to install the imap package, there's no configuration necessary (or possible).
