Even though this sounds a little bit odd, there is a service, called WebToMail, that does exactly this: it sends you an email containing the web page that you want to see. Learn how to access blocked web pages via email.
Access Blocked Web Pages via Email – How it works
1. You send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the desired URL as Subject
2. Wait a few minutes (maximum 5)
3. You receive an email containing the web page that you want to see.
It’s that simple!
- It can be used by those that only have email access (e.g. at work or school)
- Very simple to use
- It’s not very comfortable for browsing :). Not a real solution to unblock sites.
- Images may not be shown
- Not all web pages can be seen this way. I tried www.whatismyipaddress.com and I got “Your browser, plug-in, or script is not passing a user-agent string. This could be due to an overly aggressive security suite. Unfortunately, due to continued abuse, we cannot serve the requested page to you.”
To sum up, WebToMail looks like a nice solution to unblock certain pages when you only have access to email.
