I've not yet tried to use it, but isn't there a MythWeb plugin as part of the 
standard plugin package? If so, and if it's a reasonably "generic" browser, 
you could use that in conjunction with a Web mail server to do the job.

Another option would be to drop out of mythfrontend and run any regular Linux 
e-mail client. You could exit from mythfrontend, run an X-based mail client 
on a second X session on VT8, or use a text-mode mail client on VT1. You'd 
almost certainly need a real keyboard, not just a remote, to do any of these 
things, though.
