I would love to get a Gmail account? And am fining it very difficult :thumbsup: I have reply to several free invites with no reply(the post where from Sept) so that may have been the problem??

Could someone please hook me up with an invite or a download sit

(As for the Gmail account I have received an invite from Joe Jenson...Thanks so much Joe..should have checked all of my mail before posting this part..so sorry :flowers:)

Any help would/will be greatly appreciated.

TYIA,

La Princess

Also are there any good email programs sites that you can use a new user name not my isp's?

Ans does anyone one know anything about disposable emails for one time use, for sites that it isn't really necessary for them to have my email other than to pass along to 3rd party or spam etc.

Sorry so long...

LA Princess

Lycos.com, MyWay.com, among others are free mail sites, and dont't forget
M$N.hotmail....


Yoiu'll pay a price for logging onto/into any of them...
and that is the adverts... etc that you'll be subjected to.

At the moment I don't have a G-maill account to gift you,
but some others here may. So wait a bit for those....

Thanks Koan I have just got a Gmail invite from Joe and I love it!! No need for any other email sites..My ISP account email which is great also and My Way which came with my computer that I use for a kind of disposable mail site....but there is still the return addy...I have heard of disposable emails that can be used for one time and I think are encrypted (whatever that means)..I think that means they can't be traced back to my PC???

Thanks Koan,

La Princess

Take on any "disposable" e-mail addee's that you are offered or can get.

I've many. Some I use for friends, some for others, some for "business", etc.

One needs some "disposable" e-maile adds for when the spam/junk/etc gets
to be more than one wants to deal with. (e.g. I've (sssh)) 6 g-mails that I've received -
probably why I've not been given other than 6 to pass along....)

Whatever - take, do - what your need to perserve your accounts and security on the www.

regards,
~Koan

I will give you a gmail account. But dont use it for nothing that should be very safe. I use my free accounts for forums like these and other stuff.
Just pm me your email.

Here you go. Bookmark this. And just make up a name adding @dodgeit.com. Then to check, go to dodgeit and sign in with your disposable name. This is only for recieving e-mail. O.K.
