Here's my top 3 weirdest devices I've ever sent email through, just for fun:
1. The AlphaSmart "Dana" which was a strange laptop-like device which ran
PalmOS. The email client was Eudora for PalmOS.
2. Sony eVilla BeIA appliance using some kind of (crappy) built-in mail
3. Sharp Wizard handheld organizer over a serial TTY connected to a 386/SX
with optional math co-processor installed so it could run ... Xenix.
Logged in via simple built-in vt100 terminal app on the wizard at 2400
BPS to the Unix box. Used 'elm' to send the mail.
That Sharp Wizard was a helluva organizer for it's time. The main feature
was that it takes AAA batteries and thus I was actually able to afford to
run the thing in college by getting rechargables. It had a nice keyboard
and the display was readable in the sunlight, too. No backlight, though.
