Re: BT changing mail supplier from Yahoo! to Critical Path

In reply to a post by BatBoy:
you will keep the same email address
But not the disposable email addresses. I have hundreds of those, one for every company or website I deal with, so I know who has leaked my email address to hackers or spammers (surprisingly few apart from Symantec, ironically).

I'm not happy about having to change all of those.

Get your own domain, then you can have all the disposable addresses you want and no issues if your ISP changes things, or you change ISPs.

Thanks, I have a domain for my personal email address which I don't give to any companies but my registrar only allows 40 addresses per domain plus a catch-all which I disabled to cut down on spam. Looks like I need to find a better registrar.

Or get the domain's MX pointed to another company that handles email, or if you're upto it your own VPS server.

no just find a host for the domain.

It seems you are also using your registrar as a host. So dont confuse the 2 things.

If you find a host that has no such limits, then have your registrar just forward dns lookups to the host.

Thanks, yes I was using my registrar joker.com as a no-frills host for email and url forwarding.

In the end I signed up for tsohost Lite Hosting as recommended here, which should be enough for my 2 domains. A quick update of the nameservers at joker and it was all up & running.
