E-MAIL & CHAT  (The Travelers Correspondence)

E-mail is an excellent way to stay in touch with friends & relatives back home when visiting Costalegre

Many people viewing this page may already have an e-mail account with their local internet service provider.  Their e-mail address is usually formatted similar to johndoe@server.net.  However, they may not be able to use this e-mail address while traveling in Costalegre unless they have either created a roaming e-mail address (this is often difficult for the average person to do) or set themselves up with a Web based E-mail account. 

WEB E-MAIL (SiteMail)

The best way to use E-Mail in Mexico is by using a web (browser based) e-mail account often called site mail.  Some Internet Service Providers (ISP's) provide this service as an option to existing customers, but they can also be purchased from many e-mail vendors directly on the Internet.

HOW IT WORKS

1) Type in the web URL of your web based e-mail account using any web browser.  Demo: SiteMail

2) Enter your User Name and Password.
3) Read and Send or Delete messages.  (Simple as that!)

ADVANTAGES

Your mail can be accessed from any Internet Cafe in the Costalegre or from any personal or business computer connected to the internet.  You will not have to procure a new roaming e-mail address and have to forward this new address to people you normally correspond with, then cancel it when you get home and re-notify your friends.

FREE E-MAIL PROVIDERS

Another option is to sign up for a free e-mail account with an on-line mail company.

These mail companies are not really "FREE".  You "Will" have to fill out a form providing Personal, Demographic & Marketing information to them which they sell to advertising companies.  You "Will" receive spam (junk mail) in you mailbox and view nuisance "Banner Ads" when you check your mail.  You "Will" see irritating pop-up Ads which boot-up automatically in your browser.  The account will also expire if you do not use it regularly, so you could loose your chosen username, possibly forever.  People sending you mail may also receive junk mail from their advertisers.  This may not be doing your friends a favor.  They do however provide a semi-reliable service with no cash outlay.  Some people use them, mostly because they think they are getting an e-mail service for free.  One of the more popular (free?) e-mail providers is Microsoft's MSN hotmail.

CHAT

ENTER COSTALEGRE CHAT  (opens in new window)

We provide a free "Real Time" Messaging Service on this web site.  Costalegre RealChat allows you to have a direct keyboard to keyboard conversation with another person if they happen to be on-line when you are.  You will immediately know if they are, as their name will appear in the right side bar as a Participant.  Please take the time to register a Nickname and fill out "My Profile" so your friends and others will recognize you.  Have Fun!

REMEMBER

Before you leave home, type up a list of all of your favorite e-mail and web site addresses, as well as user names and passwords to all the services that you have accounts with.  When in Costalegre, you can also send e-mails to yourself in order to store information in your in-box for retrieval when you return home.
A note on Internet Cafes:  Not all internet cafes are alike!  Check the connection speed and cost before you go on-line.  Usually, the more computers they have running, the slower the connection speed will be.  Some connections can be excruciatingly slow, which means you will pay more as uploads & downloads will take much longer.  Sometimes browsing the Internet is not a viable option if the wait time is excessive.  You may want to consider using Internet Cafes just for keeping in touch using e-mail.
