    Jump (Flash) Drives (IE6 SP2)

    Has anybody done any work on the best form of email client to install on a jump drive? I'm assuming it is possible. I'm currently running Courier 3.5 (Build 1088). Perhaps someone could advise the best course of action to take? I'm interested in mobile computing, and I'd ratherr not leave personal stuff all over other people's computers.

    Thanks

    I've used a Knoppix Linux CD for this, and other tasks. The Knoppix CD is a bootable distribution that will work on any PC that you can boot from the CD or DVD drive. Once inside, open the webbrowser and access a site such as Yahoo or Hotmail for your email.

    There is also the option of using different command line flags at boot-up, to turn on the options to save your /home directory, which would allow you to run a fully functional email client, and store downloaded emails.

    I have not tried it but Portable Thunderbird is a USB drive-friendly version of Thunderbird.
