Emacspeak use and mail



Bryan R. Smart writes:
I *never* download email to my laptop.

I have all incoming mail  filtered by procmail into separate
folders 
--messages that dont get filtered automatically --and the
ones that I therefore need to read first--
remain in my system mailbox.

I read mail from home by  re-attaching to the running emacs
session on my workstation and having it send the speech to
the remote speech server running on the laptop.

This has the added advantage of leaving all the data on the
network where it gets backed up--
as opposed to the laptop where backups are my
responsibility;
it also has the virtue of being very very efficient with
respect to band-width --so if there a 1mb message of which
you are going to read the first screenful the approach
outlined here causes you do bring over only the one
screenful worth of speech down the modem line to the laptop.
