I wouldn't try to remember a bunch of terms which don't mean anything to you. Just explain it in plain english smile Tell him that you'd like to access email from offsite and go from there. It may be a simple matter of setting up a webmail account that you can access from any browser or it may involve setting up a VPN connection or even an RDP session.

I agree. You probably already have some type of web mail feature with your company email. If your company runs exchange server it will be even easier.
