Does anyone know of a pay-in-advance e-mail service that will let you choose your own user name, no matter how long or short it is? If so, what is that web site? Thank you. Murrar

Just out of curiosity why do you want a 'pay for' mail service, when there are so may free ones that have the long user name availability? What are the benefits you are looking for by paying a fee?

A long user name is one way to minimize use, by others. Most people don't like typing long names or they are often misspelled.

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.

I want a very short username (so that when I am giving my e-mail on the telephone to some the person on the telephone can understand me easily) to precede the @ sign, and I want a very short password (easier to remember). Murrar
