How can I access my BigPond email mailbox with a web browser / at an internet cafe?
Go to telstra.com and click on “WebMail”. Enter your complete email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) as your username, and your email password, then submit the form. If you are asked if you wish to register, click Yes. You should now be able to read your mail. If you don’t like Telstra.com, or it simply isn’t working, there are a number of sites that let you check any POP3 mailbox through a web browser. This is particularly useful if you only want to check your mail once, or if you’re in an Internet Cafe. One example is a site called PandaMail (http://www.pandamail.net). When it asks you for your server, type in the full name of your local POP3 server (for BigPond Broadband users it is “pop-server.bigpond.net.au”). If you have a Telstra GSM or CDMA mobile, the Telstra ‘Notify Me’ service can be used in conjunction with your bigpond mailbox. This sends an SMS message to your mobile when you have mail.
