This turned out to be a more interesting thread than I expected.

I went w/ mirroring to email all my accts to addr "travel". When I
returned home, I deleted the "travel" acct and all email to "travel" on
the borrowed portable PC. Turned on the mail client machine at home and
retrieved the several hundred emails.

Thanks to everyone who participated.
