I was talking about a yahoo.com account because you can read it using a
web browser. Or are they also filtering WWW traffic?
If you can afford it, you would be much better served if you buy a low-end
laptop (e.g., on an auction site) with a dialup connection. Even the cheapest
Handspring PDA with the cheapest 56k modem (and a bit of tweaking to get them
connected together) would be a much better situation for you.
If what you really want is get Debian mail encrypted in your school, then
have your mail delivered on master.debian.org and setup a procmail filter
to GPG-encrypt it before forwarding to your school address. Or get a shell
account somewhere that does the same thing. Ultimately, if all you need is
an address which does the encrypting+forwarding, drop me a note in private
with your GPG public key and the end address and I'll set you one up (without
a shell account) in minutes.
