    a limited access?

    Would you tell me which one of the following is correct?

    a. I have a limited access to email while I am out of the office.
    b. I have limited access to email while I am out of the office.

    * The difference is whether there is "a" before "access".

    If neither, then I should be grateful for your idea on how to improve the sentence so that it reads natural.

    I think 'a' should not be used before 'access', an uncountable noun, but I am not a teacher.

    That's the one. It needs no improvement; it is fine as it is.
