look in the bios and see if there are power options to have it auto turn on, like after a power outage...

Just want to clear something up.. he said he is NOT at home.. so unless he has pcAnywhere.. that won't be happening withthe bios thing.
But it's a good suggestion for in the future to prevent such things from happening.

In your BIOS you would want to change it so it comes back up automatically each time the power gets interrupted.
But keep in mind, that PC's don't do well with being 'short circuited'.

Starting up another redirector on another computer and pointing it to the same mailbox will do the trick.

Redirector is just monitoring your mailbox and sending emails through it. So it really doesn't matter what computer the redirector is running on.

if the computer crashes, you can call up a friend and have them turn on redirector that's preconfigured for you if you planned it out properly.

Remember, the one at home is not working so he would just get the one.
