Well, I think your stuck paying money for a service, but there are some cheap ones out there. This guy is pretty cheap: http://www.domainmx.net/ This one is free - if you can deal with UUCP and the LD charges to access with it: http://www.bungi.com Is there any way you could get your webhoster to be a bit more flexible on their e-mail forwarding? If for example you could get them to forward your e-mail to a script run out of your .forward file on their webserver, you got it made. They might do that since it wouldn't require them to devote disk space to a mailbox on their server. You would write a perl script that would make a connection to a nonstandard port on your mailserver.
