[REBOL] Re: IP Address

I don't think you can. That's the problem with email -
you don't know who it's coming from. That's why we
get so much spam.
However, it looks like you want to send your address
from work, so your home computer can contact your
work computer. Surely you can just embed the ip
address in the mail you are sending.
But I think there will be a problem: your work ip
will be an internal address on a subnet, or a dynamic
ip, and behind a firewall, so it will not be visible
from the outside.
I have an idea, both machines check for mail and send
to the same mail account. But each puts an identifier
in the message so that you can tell who it's from.
When each machine checks the mail, it doesn't delete
it straight away necessarily. It first reads the mail,
and only deletes those mails which were intended to be
read by this machine.
To do this, you need to open a pop port to your account
manually, like this:
port: open join pop:// [user ":" pass "@" system/schemes/pop/host "/"]
Now read and examine the mail you have before deciding which to delete.
(Can help with that).
