SubjectRe: Posting to this list without 500 bounces?

Mike,

You can have a mail account on one of my servers for FREE and FOREVER.
I would be happy to host an email account for you if you like. What do
you want your account to be? I will create an email account, and if you
want this, then tell me and I'll have our IS guy forward you a password.
:-)
