    I've been using G mail, yahoo mail etc thru the net (as web mail).
    Firefox is my default browser at present.

    Recently, port 8080 has been blocked [and I browse thru port 80],

    G mail, yahoo mail etc are NOT blocked

    After this block of port 8080, for some reason, I am having problems
    while accessing any secure sign in pages, like those of G mail, yahoo mail

    I am allowed access to the net thru port 80 and I am sure there are
    other ports that are NOT blocked as well

    Could some one help me on

    1. How to use G Mail thru alternate ports or without secure sign in
    2. Is there a way to read G mail thru some RSS reader or something that
    still works on port 80 like a web browser would do ?
    3. Since port 110 is open, I tried downloading g mail using Thunder
    Bird. However I MAY NOT have enabled POP3 mail inside G Mail and so T
    bird is downloading only rather old mail. Is there a way I can use some
    method to log into G mail one more time and ENABLE pop access (which MAY
    NOT be enabled so far)
    3.1. I have 1000s of mail in my G mail inbox. Is there a way to download
    ONLY mail after a particular date using the pop mail facility + thuder
    bird ? or any other method ?


    - what to do with yahoo mail ?

    other info

    OS : Win XP SP2
    Browser : Firefox

    - thanks in advance for your time and efforts
    - Sorry for the couple of cross posts due to the urgency

    - I am unable to post to the G mail discussion group as the group
    accepts only web subscriptions and that needs a sign on thru web which
    alas I am unable to sign in

    best regards
