email address suggestions? (Miscellaneous)

Hi everyone,
One of two new questions for tonight.
Asking carefully so that my goal is clear. i have a gmail account to
which I no longer have access because of Javascript changes at google.
For professional reasons, I seek a replacement where I can use a webmail
interface via browser in a low or lower graphics environment. Something
that has basic HTML would be terrific, at the very least functional in
either lynx, links, or elinks. I am in no position to host my own mail,
this address must be reachable via a browser say in a library. any ideas
of a good email platform still DOS friendly?
Thanks,
Karen

I'm not sure, as never tried it yet (Google still allows me to log into my primary account without JS), but I think if you log in with any browser on any computer once and then copy the appropriate cookie(s) giving it/them as a header string in Links (before communicating with Google), you should end up being logged in when you initiate the connection with Google.

Actually, I appreciate your providing confirmation that links creates
cookies. The copy I have access to, part of a Linux shell service, does
not incorporate a Links compile that uses them.
i just downloaded links 2.0.2 with the August date. going to see if I
can set it up on my computer bypassing my need for a shell.
Google still lets me access my main account as well without js.
Reaching my research one, even though using the same identifiers, is
not happening.
I wonder if a wayback machine page might exist for Google predating the
javascr*** restriction ?
Otherwise I am going to give the js edition of Links a try, hopefully
google did not test with the latest when they indicated it cannot be
used.

I uses the variables, but it does not create cookies in the classic sense, meaning that it does not save the variables, they are lost when the program terminates. This is why you should get the variables from somewhere else and give them as header string in Links before the first communication with Google. Theoretically (according to Mikulaš, it should work).

Yet again, I would welcome reaching Mikula, as I am unsure my
situation is clear.
Get the headers from what and include them where before reaching
google? Granted I may not be working with everything, but there is no
place to insert a user agent, what I guess you mean by variables into
links anywhere that I can find.
So...discussing this with Mikula or other links for DOS users where
exactly?
