We have a $25 per year email only option.  We put it in place mainly for our 
customers that need to move over to Sat. access but don't want to loose 
their email addresses.

I've got or that people can use.  We also give 
you webmail (kinda like yahoo or msn) for when you travel.

I'd love to be able to give something back to this group for a change!  Let 
me know if anyone wants help with email issues....
