[Coco] OT: Email Service ( was Coco 1/2 Faint)

I have a suggestion. For about about $10/Year, you can purchase a domain name from Mydomain.com, then you can use their free services to create as many email addresses as you want and point them to any other email address you want. It works very well and you can update it yourself anytime you need to point to any email account you may use, free or not. I've done this for years with a few email accounts I use and never had any issues.
I don't use them for web hosting or anything else, but I buy all my domain names from them and use them when helping someone else get a domain registered.
Hope that helps.

Funny you should mention the use of live mail Gene.  I switched to live mail recently because of gmail new direction on sharing information across all google services, and the hose job they did on the interface.  I had a live accound for some reasion, so I am using this right now as a stop gap. 

I have been searching for a decent e-mail provider that is not linked to an ISP as I am bouncing around between ISPs at the moment, and don't really like chaning my email address, (takes a lot of effort).

Any one have any recommendations?  A Web interface is a must so I can check it anywhere, on any machine.  Would like to be able to set it up easily in any OS, I am moving toward linux more as XP will soon be EOL'ed and I don't like the M$ offerings.  I actually would prefer to use a console based mail program like MUTT or ALPINE assuming I can have IMAP access.  

Any recommendations?? I would not mind paying a small amount for the service, but free is always better.
