Many scientists travel frequently for field research and meetings, and it is useful to be able to access our e-mail on our cell phones. Currently, the e-mail system is set up so that it is only possible to access e-mail on your government laptop or on a government blackberry. It is wasteful to spend money to buy everyone a government blackberry, and many of us would prefer to use our personal cell phone to access our e-mail when we are traveling. My suggestion is that the e-mail system should be set up so that employees can access e-mail on their personal cell phones on a voluntary basis.
