APRSLink will let you check your email via APRS.  In my city the APRS 
Internet Gateway is located in a central high location.  So using APRSLink 
to retrieve short messages works well since the user doesn't normally have 
to go through any digipeaters.

If you are using Winlink, then put WLNK-1 into your comment or status 
beacon.  When an email arrives for you, then you will be sent an APRS 
message.  You can then check your Winlink email using Airmail, Outpost, or 
some other packet radio client.
