involve more setup than you'd like and may not interact well with
other e-mail clients (ie OS X Mail) when you are at home. This is the
unix version, that will want to use sendmail and a local mail server
rather than POP or IMAP. If you are able to set up pine or other
command-line email program to work, then yes, you could ssh into the
Mac and run it.
A better option is to use a web-based e-mail reader at work; most ISPs
offer this. Otherwise, you may be able to use a desktop e-mail client
at work to access your personal e-mail. If your ISP uses POP, set up
the e-mail program to leave messeges on the server. Then, you'd be
able to delete the files from your work computer and still be able to
download them when you get home. However, you will not be able to get
old messages off the home system. Better yet, if your ISP supports
imap, then you leave everything on the server and synchronize files
and folders between multiple desktops and the server. mac.com allows
It sounds like you and your wife share the same e-mail and OS X
accounts. Both of you may be happier if you had your own accounts,
then you won't need to worry about wiping out her e-mail when you are
at work or otherwise messing up her user environment.
