Round-up of service reps -- February 2008 (part 1)

These are all the ones I know about, there may be others...

(Nearly three years later than I intended, but still...)

As before, this time around I have deleted all those I know about where the service has died; and where the service is moribund or the rep hasn't visited EMD in far too long (it's usually both), I've marked the service in red.

As always, these lists are E&OE; any corrections are welcome.

4or.us: William Holmes

www.bigimap.com: gisarah (service still active but rep last here in 2004)

Bluebottle.com: rob_au, jon_au (couldn't confirm jon_au's status as there don't seem to be any posts by him)

BurntMail: ckirk, line_fault

CentralPets: Roger (last here in 2002)

CheckP3 (email client provider) (last here in 2004 -- note that web page is mostly in Italian)

Computermail.net: Computermail.net

Cwazy.co.uk: stevew

emailx.net: emailx.net (last posted here in 2002. Love their use of the Spectrum font, but their claim of "Email vastly superior to AOL, Hotmail & Yahoo" isn't saying much.)

eslzone.com: WendyB (last here in 2003; on 2008/1/2 @ 02:10, site was just a directory, but this might just be a glitch)

everyone.net: btn

Excite.com, MyWay.com: tkallen78 (just one post, back in 2004)

fadmail.com: Fahd (last post was in 2005. WARNING: when I visited homepage, it linked to notorious spyware site "Cursor Mania")

fastcheck.org: spiderman

fastmail.ca: hackish (AFAIK doesn't check these forums; appeared once because his service was mistaken for the one below. When opened on 2008/2/2 @02:33, was slow to open.)

fastmail.fm: Jeremy Howard, robmueller, kurianja, Onno, sam_watkins, rjlov, masta (no longer active), brong, Cory Johns (note that apart from Jeremy and Rob, some of these may be no longer active -- best go through the support channels)

filtermy.com (spam filtering service): FilterMy (last posted in 2004)

www.freepop3.net: FreePop3 (last posted in 2004)

Fusemail.com: bryanh, plathem

www.galaway.com: Galaway (last here in 2005: domain expired 21 January)

gawab.com: Gawab (warning, listed on RFC-Ignorant; some bulletin boards reject signups from this domain)

www.gishpuppy.com: gishpuppy (last here in 2004)

HotPop.com: Eric Savage (last here in 2004)

Hugemail.com: Hektor (last here in 2005)

HypeWise.com: Hypewise (only post was in 2003)

icarusindie.com: KalvinB (regards his users as "leeches", and made posts full of logic errors; also appears to have left EMD and not come back; none of which bodes well for the soundness of his service)

www.imap4all.com: imap4all (last here in 2005)

inbox.com: : MikeF (last here in 2003)

inumbers.com: rbpickup

jlmail.com: jlnt

killer.kkk.sg: Killer (note that the ac.gs domain space is long-dead)

www.lionrampant.co.uk: root (there seems to be a certificate problem, at least when the site is viewed with Firefox)

MailAndNews.*: see ShanjeMail

MailCruncher.com (spam-filtering service): OutboundIndex (last here 2004)

Mailsnare: Madiver, Allan

mochamail.com: mochamail (last here in 2002)

ModoMail: ModoEd, modovlad (couldn't connect)

morgle.com: terrymechan (last here in 2004)

NameCheap: enetwork (last here in 2003)

OnlineHomeBase: marcfest (only one EMD post, in 2003)

phatcom.net: marsel (marsel appears to have been a phatcom reseller; I don't think he is any longer)

plaxo.com: rikk, PlaxoPrivacy, redgee (user no longer exists) (last here 2005)

POP Peeper (email notifier): Sirath

Runbox: Liz, Geir, Arunav (no longer active), hanslysglimt, trond, sigurdur, tore, jschreib, Trip

(continued in following post)
