- Accessing & Reading my email inbox hosted at the place I work.
- Accessing it frequently (at least every few minutes).
- Hosting the program (script) that would do the above, on a server that’s available throughout the day.
- Protecting sensitive/personal data from third parties (in this case it was my password).
Although I’m not using this service these days (cos spammers occupy a decent share of my inbox ultimately filling up my sms inbox too!), the learning and application of learned theory was something to admire in solitude.
