Check your school email from home.

Depending on the type of school email account you have, you may be able to check it from your home. It all depends on the type of server that your school is using. Most colleges and universities use Web-based email, which is very easy to check at home. If your school uses a system-based or closed email program, you won't be able to check it from home.
