Sending emails while travelling can be a real challenge. Have you ever been logged into the local Wi-fi with your laptop trying to clean up urgent emails before you get on a plane only to discover when you get to your destination the emails are still sitting in your Out Box?
This has happened to me in airports, overseas in Hotels, Internet Cafes, a variety of places. It has even happened to me when I have been logged into clients Internet servers.
I have found a solution to sending emails while travelling
http://www.smtp2go.com provide a service that allows you to send emails from anywhere in the world from your laptop, whether it is a PC or a Mac. It even works on your Ipad or Smart phone.
They have a totally free version that allows you to send 200 emails a month. You can sign up, they don't ask for your credit card details. I only go in and change my outgoing mail to smtp2go when I am away.
With the free version you can send from only one email address. You still receive all emails via your normal provider. smtp2go only sends your emails.
The standard paid version is super cheap and allows you to email from more than one email addresses. So if you have a work email and a personal email it will send emails from both. It has a 30 day free trial, so if you are going away and you have more than one email you can give it a try.
With this standard version you can send 5000 emails a month. Again, you still receive all emails via your normal provider. smtp2go only sends your emails, so for most of us, 5000 is a lot. There are then a range of plans should you need more emails.
If you click on the “See Plans and Pricing” link on their home page, you will see all the available options and pricing.
For those who are not very techie, they have excellent instructions. They promised it would take less than 2 minutes and it did.
So, another great find.
