Hi. if I want to have my own website like : www.johntodd.com and I want to have the following account : firstname.lastname@example.org so, the provider must support the email service (like smtp and pop3) right ? and I, must build some pages (like JSP) to retrieve the emails , right ? another question : mail providers like yahoo, hotmail, excite specifies a specific amount of data storage like 2MB, 5MB. when someone registers with them, how they locate his storage ? are they using some code (like C or C++) or allocating process is vertual?
Alot of providers allow you to set up email accounts with them. I know if I pay some extra bucks they will give me 25 email accounts. Most places will redirect your email to another account, but be warned, you will get spam from hell if you use generic names (eg. webmaster,postmaster,info,error,etc.) Eric
