Well, you also have the SquirrelMail option to make your own web mail,
and you can use fetchmail/fetchyahoo/whatever to get your mail to a
mailbox that your SquirrelMail can see.  This is the solution you're
looking for if you aren't allowed to install software on your work
computer.

Another option is to use putty to create an SSH tunnel through an HTTP
proxy.  This works better if you can install software or already have
putty and a mail fetcher on your system.

Linux.  You can find a worse OS, but it costs more.
