email on laptop from server

Is it possible to use the email client on my laptop (say Incredimail on Windows2000) to read the mails of "user_a" from an HP-UX 11.0 server.

I usually use dtmail on the XTerminal to read mails of user_a, but I was thinking if it is possible to use other fancier email clients.

Is it possible? Can you give some example configuration, i.e. what do I need to do on my laptop, and on the server? Do I need to use a mail relay?

Hi Edmund,

all you need to use your "fancy" eMail client on your laptop would be a "POP3" server running on the UN*X box.
Get one from from the HP-UX porting archives:
