    Thanks, Greg. Could you maybe put a link to mail.physicsforums.com somewhere?-- maybe the quick links menu?

    It would be cool if the e-mails were provided by GMail, because some people here, linux users like me, are anti-microsoft and have solemnly pledged never to open any microsoft site in their browser.

    I understand, gmail does have a server similiar to this, however accounts must be manually created and I won't do that.
  18. Sep 25, 2008 #17

    I too like gmail better because I can use a third party program to retrieve mail from it. In order to do that on hotmail I have to pay.... Plus I use Linux ;)

    But I still like this a lot better than my old hotmail account.

    yay, thanks for the free email acounts
  20. Sep 27, 2008 #19

    You don't need to pay to retrieve your mails. There is a workaround for this. You can configure hotmail to forward your emails to your GMail address. In your GMail, you can simply label all mails coming from youraddy@physicsforums.com.

    Hope that helps.

    I am also an anti-microsoft person. Oh well, this still might come useful one day.
