    Then you don't need it since most of your mail is already going to your
university account, it is working, and you don't have a problem with that
(from your prebious messages).
    Tell me, what would be the point of directing mail to your home account
if you have to call it, long distance, to retrieve it?  Unless, of course, it
is stored at the ISP and you have a shell there in which case you could
telnet in.
