Default Telephone accessories

BT Easicom dial-up email machine, will probably start dialing up Pipex or ZetNet as soon as you plug it in: Old In Box, 1 + postage
Telephone with attached Fax machine, 110V, FoC in the unlikely event...

A couple more: BT Response 50 answering machine, no cassette tape
US Robotics Sportster 14,000 FAX Modem, not tested recently
FoC + carriage, same also for the Easicom email unit

Does anyone know anything more about the email machine, like what email server it was used with?

According to https://www.pprune.org/computer-inte...com-300-a.html it dialled a premium rate number which was pulled in 2004

Even if the number could be changed (or used via an intermediate PBX which absorbs the dialled digits and connects to a local number) the data protocols used might be proprietary.

There's a chance it's just a basic serial terminal, as I don't expect it's got much memory or processing power to understand POP3.

Hello

You've got me curious about the Easicom e-mail "thing" though I don't want it and I've turned up this period review. It doesn't look as though it will do anything useful any more>

That review mentions SMTP/POP3/RFC822 access but I suspect that's using the associated server-based mail service, not on the device.

With only 512k flash memory I'd be sceptical there's enough ROM to support an operating system, SLIP/PPP stack, and POP3 client.

Thanks for your comments on the Easicom, but I'm afraid it went to a better place a couple of months ago

Re the Solitare 1100 payphone, I now see I had greatly over-valued it: price now reduced by 3 to make it more affordable
