[ale] [OT]Non-ISP Email services

Buy a domain name at 1and1.com and pay for their email only service.  It's about $ 15 / year if I recall.  Then, you mail can come to your own domain.  It's a good idea (in my opinion) to pay something for such service.  In terms of customer service and maintenance, you get what you pay for.  $ 1.25 / month doesn't get you much in that regard, but with millions of customers, they have more funds to manage the data center and provide some help to needy customers.  Try to get some help from gmail for a problem.  Also, having your own domain name lends more credibility, which may be useful in some cases.  The domain name costs about $ 8 / year.

(PS I wasn't sure if you wanted to avoid all ISP's, which is not the question I answered, or the big three services.)

Please excuse my potential brevity if I'm typing on the touch screen.

(PS - If you email me and don't get a quick response, you might want to
call on the phone.  I get about 300 emails per day from alternate energy
mailing lists and such.  I don't always see new email messages very quickly.)
