Need some thoughts

Hi,

I was thinking about making a application as follows:

An applet, which connects to your different mail-servers, stores the messagaes on th web-space and you can reach it from any computer.

I thought this soundet like a good idea but then I realised that an applet only can connect to the server it came from.

Does anyone has any ideas about how I can accomplish the task?

I rather not use servlets,

Hope someone has some ideas!

    A signed applet can do anything that it's policy allows it to, up to anything a Java application can do.

    Otherwise, I'm pretty sure you'll need a server-side solution or you'll need to hack your way around Java's security (though that may not be very portable :P). Otherwise, again, I think you are SOL.

    Okey, but how do I get an applet signed?
    (Im not an expert on applets, maybe this is a hellastupid question :-)
