End of Free e-mail
Having your personal e-mail address for less than $15 a year
If you are looking for an online service offering you the possibility to have your personalized e-mail account, like Luigi@CanaliDeRossi.com I have something to suggest.
First of all I suggest you to read the following article:
"The Golden Age Of Free Email Is Coming To An End" http://www.devarticles.com/files/freeemail.txt
It is an interesting article that explains why free e-mail services such as Yahoo or HotMail are such poor and unreliable choices for a serious professional. It also provides a very simple and clear method on how to a get a personalized e-mail that can serve you reliably for years at less than USD $15 per year.
The concept is as follows:
- I purchase a domain for about $9.00 a year from a registrar which allows for email forwarding. NameCheap is one of these.
Let's say I registered "CanaliDeRossi.com"
(this is my last name)
- Park the web site on their server. This presents a single page which says the site is under construction.
- Use the NameCheap system to forward all incoming email to
"Luigi@CanaliDeRossi.com" to my own personal ISP email account.
What is the advantage of this? Since everyone will be sending email to Luigi@CanaliDeRossi.com, you can change ISP's all you want. You don't have to worry about changing your email address - you only have to change the one forwarding address.
To support your general e-mail needs one particularly valuable solution is also Everyone.Net at:
Richard Lowe of Internet-tips.com says about it:
"Personally, I love the service provided by Everyone.net. For about $40 a year, you get your own domain name and ten full- featured POP3 email accounts. You can use your own email program (Outlook, Outlook Express, Eudora or whatever you prefer) or you can read your messages on the web using a simple interface. Everyone.Net also has a very simple filtering capability, which I've found is great for getting rid of the spam. This service is perfect for someone who needs a lot of email accounts without any effort, perhaps for a family or group of friends."
