Wireless router with built in email

All 'internet' webmail is blocked via my works proxy so I'm looking to get a cable router that has the ability to pick up my email and I can then via a webpage access my router to read/reply. Reason I want it in the router as I don't want to have to leave my PC on 24/7.

Does anyone make such a gadget?

First all that ain't what routers do they connect networks together. (Domestic ones have a few extra gizmos. built-in.)

The most important thing that you should know however is that negating one's employer's network security is generally regarded as Gross Misconduct and therefore grounds for dismissal.

Don't try and bypass company internet security!

If you MUST check your email at work then could you use your mobile phone.

Well you two are a barrel of laughs :)

I work for a communications company and I'm security cleared. If you break the rules you can get into a LOT of trouble. No laughing matter :(

On the bright side, I love my work :thumbsup:

Good luck hacking the Matrix :)

if that traffic is blocked, then how will having a cable router and connecting to the network help you....it cant, unless you have it in front of the router that is doing the traffic filtering

so you are going to install your own router in front of the works firewall just to grab your personal email before they block it ? !

Known webpages are blocked like hotmail, blueyonder etc not actual mail. It obviously doesn't exist and if it did would be shot down by the world and his wife. Squirrel mail and leaving pc on may be the answer.

Squirrel mail and leaving pc on may be the answer.

You have received a good deal of good advice here but if you do that then it's your job not ours. BTW if you worked for me you would be out of the door so fast your feet would not touch the ground.
