Hi,

Basically, all I wanted to know is there any way to sign up for just email forwarding and basic email account with .mac.

I really want to have [email protected] but I don't have any use for all the other features .mac offers. Also I am student, so money isn't exactly growing on the plum tree outside.

If this is not possible, does anybody know any good cheap (preferably free) email forwarding services? Mac themed domains would be cool. i.e [email protected] or anything like that.

Any help appreciated.

Thank you for listening and thanks for any help in advance.

Yours,

Richard

Until he gets a useful response, presumably.

No, you must purchase .Mac as a package. There is no way to order email separately, though that would be nice.

You merely need to find a "friend" who has a full account, who can then reserve a $10 a year email-only account. For my family I purchased the main account, and my parents have email-only accounts that I added.

if you're a friend of mine, i'll add you to my account, and i'll gladly pay the $10 for your email-only account. i'm just nice/kind like that.

however, you're no friend of mine, so piss off
