There are several methods, the most obvious of which is to simply send
each other your moves. XBoard comes with cmail, which is supposed to
aid in this but I have never gotten it working - never *really* tried
actually. There are probably other programs available, but me...I would
just send the moves.

You can also use a website like http://itsyourturn.com which allows you
to play in a similar fassion to email but on the web of course. Time
limits are on the order of days or months, the hold tournaments, and it
is free with mild limitations (40 moves per day, etc...), full use costs
$8 per year. I am a free user and rarely hit my limit.

You can also try:

It's free and has a nice interface.
