There is also GMX.net, a German site for free pop3 and SMTP. They used to
have international web pages (English too), but have discontinued them.
They seem to be very dependable, and work with all Newton email programs.
10MB storage. The only downside is that some spammers have also discovered
them, and valid email is sometimes rejected by some sites as spam, decided
on the domain level.

I don't think that this is heavily publicized, but there is an smtp server
for the domain mac.com, and it's smtp.mac.com. The nicest thing is that
since you can't be logged on the same network than the server, it doesn't
have any restriction about how you are connected to the internet, meaning
that you can always send email through it no matter what your ISP is.
