My friend wants to play chess via email with his dad. He doesn't want
to complete a game online; he just wants to make a move and send a
picture (jpeg, etc.) of that move to his dad who would then respond in
kind in his own sweet time. Is there a freeware chess program that
would allow them to play this way?

While it's not freeware (though very reasonably priced!), there is a
really great email chess program available...

ECTool:

Thank you, but I'd like a freeware e-mail chess program for Win98 and
later. Do you know of one?

I just did a bit of googling, and came up with these:

Chess Tool:

http://www.pasanet.es/usuarios/jgajate/index.html

Mail Chess:

http://www.mailchess.de/mce.html

I've not tried either of these, and I'm sure you could find more if
you do some google searching, but perhaps they're a start.


I had previously seen the first - not sure if I had seen the second.
I don't play chess and was trying to get confirmation that particular
freeware chess e-mail programs are good and bug-free.

I sincerely thank you for your help!
