With webmail, of course, you don't download all your mail - you just delete all the crap (which is obvious from the title) without reading it, then read and respond to the handful of messages which remain. As I say, in over a year, I've used less than 1 on credit on my dongle, so for me personally, it's the perfect solution for occasional usage.

That's with a netbook, of course. Such things don't work with eBook readers.
