Your own domain name and hosting to have numerous email accounts would cost you around 75pw
That's £3 per month = £36 per year. That's dear!
I'm paying about £15 / year this year & £22 / year in following years from 1&1 for the same thing. The email hosting is actually £1.19 per month.
I don't think that the free email addy that E7er got from 1&1 is just Webmail; it is POP3'able too.
