I can't either.  What happens to your email when you cross back into the US 
and some border guard decides you look suspicious and takes your n810.  I 
really like the idea of having my email and computer files on my box, in my 
locked house, If I lost or the n810 was taken for whatever reason, I have 
nothing on there I can't replace.
