TriLUG will be offering email accounts to members but there are still
some bugs we need to work out. See http://bugzilla.trilug.org/ for what
we're working on.
However, if all you want is a forwarding address, we can do that now
through TriLUG. Do you have an account on fatalpha, the TriLUG server?
If not, email email@example.com with your member number and desired username
and we can set you up.
You can also get lifetime forwarding addresses from places like
http://www.pobox.com/ ($15/year) and http://www.mail.com/ (free, but with
small ads tagged onto incoming email.) I have had my pobox.com address
for 5 years now, and I've changed ISPs multiple times in the interim.
It's worked wonderfully for me, except that I get a lot of spam since my
address hasn't changed.
Hope this helps,
