Her DSL server mailbox is so full now, that she can't download what's up there from the server. I'd like to do something like the following, so if anyone sees a problem with my plans or knows of a better way, please speak up.

Then use fetchmail as a cron job to download her DSL email to the Centos server, let MS clean up the junk, let her monitor the email on the Centos server with webmail and MW and flush the rest of the junk, and then point her mail client to retrieve the email from the Centos box byway of POP to her home machine. All this would be on my home network.  Hopefully, it'll fall into some manageable order.
