Some people complete school and move onto a job, while others return to school after gaining some practical experience. As a result, one quarter of all e-mail addresses becomes obsolete each year: mail simply bounces back from those addresses. Therefore, you realize one aspect of managing a network like this -- it takes an enormous amount of time to go through all the returned mail, and delete the obsolete addresses from the membership roster. There is one way to solve a part of the problem, and that is to have lifetime e-mail addresses. We know of seven services who would forward your electronic mail for life: 1. http://www.USA.net; then click onto NetAddress. It is free. 2. http://www.Juno.com; then click onto Get Juno Now. It is free. 3. http://www.pobox.com/~pobox; then click onto Paying. It costs $15 a year. 4. http://www.HotMail.com; then click onto Sign Up Here. It is free. 5. http://www.GeoCities.com; then click onto Free E-mail. It is free. 6. http://www.Four11.com; then click onto Lifetime iName. It is free. 7. http://www.RocketMail.com; then click onto Sign Up Now. It is free. Everyone benefits if you have an e-mail address for life. You gain because each time you move you need to notify only one party -- the service that forwards your e-mail to your current address -- rather than to all of your friends and acquaintances. Moreover, you don't lose any of your valuable electronic mail. Your friends and acquaintances have a lot to gain because they need to remember only one address for you. In addition, they will not be irritated by bounced mail. Therefore, we urge all members to subscribe to a lifetime e-mail forwarding service.

If you know of any other service that forwards electronic mail for life, please send an e-mail to email@example.com. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
