    Have the following setup:

    (Home) PC -> Belkin WL/DSL Router -> Netgear ADSL modem

    + Laptop (used for work)->Router (thru either a Xircom Realport or using
    Belking WLAN)

    Both PCs work fine for WWW, NGs and Home PC can pick up email fine.

    However, I would like the laptop to be able to access my Corporate email via
    the BB connection. At the moment, I have to use the Realport to dial in to a
    corporate server @ only 40k. Seems a bit pointless when it can access BB
    speeds thru my home LAN.

    Obviously the mail server for work is behind a firewall and on a private
    network. Is there any way for them to allow me do this? Would they simply
    have to add an IP filter onto their firewall settings and would this mean
    I'd need a Static IP?

    Would asking my employers to simply allow me web access o my work email
    allow me to do this? And if so, would it allow me to pull email into Outlook
    or only using IE?

    Options -

    An internet accessible email address (exchange server etc)
    A VPN connection to the network (all network resources accessible over a
    virtual connection to to corp network)
    Something like CITRIX - allows lots of users and basically VPN with remote
    desktop. This costs money and only some companies use it.
