My brother, when he is back in North Dakota, uses Charter's online mail editor 
to send.  He does hate the interface they provide so he edits in his normal 
Kmail editor then copies and pastes to the Charter editor.  It works fine for 


He is several zipcodes away.  They just ask for the zip of the original 
location and use that SMTP server from wherever you currently are. You do have 
to do each mail separately, you can not send batch mail but it works from 
remote locations.  You are already paying for Charter's service, why not use
