home is easy - he just needs his pop3/smtp details, and user id/password
traveling is a little different
depends who your provider is - with some you can get dial up access from various locations - like roaming with a cell phone - ie at&t, they even have a 1-800 service you can use (for$$)
another way is a 3rd party provider: yahoo enables you to access pop3 from anywhere, all you do is setup a yahoo account, then use your pop3 server settings to get your regular mail
in both case corporate firewall permissions may have to be adjusted to allow remote access
well he might need that realllly long cable then!
he obviously needs internet access at his home to start
- either a dial up or dsl from who ever provides you the office connection or a different 3rd party (NOT AOL please - it won't work)
-then he needs the mail server addresses for the office server
maybe a call to what ever company provides your internet connection could help, they would probably love to sell you more services
- like dial up or dsl
- and they would have the correct settings, hell they should go over and set him up for free just for the customer service part of it
