Several people have mentioned IMAP as one way to go. If the machine acting 
as the primary mail server (ie. the one you are retrieving your mail from) 
is under your control, another option is to install a web-based mail 
system. I run a Qmail based system with several add-ons. As a result, users 
can read and send mail using the sqwebmail (web-based) mail service.

Since this is web-based, a users mail can be accessed from any machine with 
Internet access. Users can also send mail through the same interface. This 
might be a better option since you can use any web browser on a machine 
without the need to do any configuration of the e-mail program or browser 
to access an IMAP server.
