Glad to here the service is still alive. These days I never know what to
expect ...

Membership. I have an idea how to use a newted mail account to improve my
Newton mail experience. (Sorry if that reads like a real estate add).

You might notice that my original message came from my MP, but this reply
is from a webmail client. That is because my Newton gets overwhelmed with
all the traffic I get. My ISP will not provide IMAP service. I want an
account I can forward select messages to, then reply to them from my MP.

Epiphany, which is based on Firefox.

Something you didn't ask: I am at work and we have a pretty tough http
proxy server. Usually the only impact is that the hostname and IP address I
connect with is not actually my own, but occasionally it gets nasty in
other, unknowable ways.

Something else: At what point do you ask for payment, because that did not
happen up to the point I reached.
