If you access your email through your browser, it should be the same. If you usually use a desktop program such as Outlook or Thunderbird, then it's trickier. You should check with your service provider on whether webmail is an option, or get the settings for checking mail from outside their network.

If it's a public computer, beware of security threats (e.g., keyloggers capturing your passwords).
