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 sys at trilug.org 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,
