You can set up a separate mailbox as a subaccount and just forward it all to your primary account. Same effect.

Is that free, or another monthly charge involved ?

You get up to 10 subaccounts free. I believe it's $2.50/mo each if you want more than 10.

I am with Telecom, however I do not use their email.
Friend changed to them too recently, and rang for help in setting up email with Google.

Go with Gmail, then you can keep it forever for one thing, as well as having less problems in future.

Google will allow all the aliases you like....

Suggested that in the last thread... don't know why anyone would use ISP mail in this day in age.

I see Snap seem to have had a SAN failure or something like it which has killed their mail service also.
