You didn't open http://carnot.yi.org/ExampleSystems.html#OLPC .
It's plain text and not too big.  Surely you can open that 
even with a poor telephone modem connection.

There is a link to the Downloads page at the ETH which has a 
link to the uni-bremen.de you cited.

SMTP and POP3 work.  Just sent and retrieved a test message.

ISP => Linux system at home via OpenVPN 
=> underlying Debian Linux => Fullscreen Oberon.
In my setup TLS is provided by the underlying system.  
This message also sent from that system.  (!)
Aos has IMAP but I can't comment on that.  SMTP and 
POP3 suffice here.

The little Changelog.txt shows that work is ongoing.  
Nevertheless the system is useable.  You just need to find 
a way to get the 37 MiB file & install it.  Maybe you can 
help Guenter a little by reporting a bug.
