Hi emoore.

I evaluated PM in 2012 and could only find one of the threads I started back then: http://www.emaildiscussions.com/showthread.php?t=64713

In addition to the rudimentary filtering capability, there are few (I can't remember exactly, perhaps none) multi domain mail capability using just one account.

I have mail for many domains and sub-domains hosted with FM, which most other providers can't handle with one account or would charge extra for.

In addition, I could be wrong, but I remember PM as being a one or two person show.

Finally, PM was (and probably still is) a Canadian company out of Toronto or thereabouts. It is my understanding that the NSA filters all international Internet traffic.

Although, like most members of this Forum, I have nothing to hide, I take exception to Big Brother's spying on my communications.

Having said all of the above, I suppose that if all you require is basic E-Mail service with one or two aliases, little filtering and no domain mail, you should be O.K. with PM.

Good luck whatever you decide.

It is what it is. Get over it.
Perhaps people use reverse psychology....you ask for something to be changed knowing full well they wont ever change it, that way you get to keep the features which are important to you.

Hi, Terry.

I've never heard of "reverse physiology."

Did you, perhaps, mean "reverse psychology"?

Happy New Year either way.

If they're not ready after all these years, I'd say probably not. I remember trying them out almost a decade and a half ago.

Hey there. Question. When I click 'change plan length' button I see one question ["When do you want the change to take effect?"] and I see two choices: (a) When my plan next renews [Jul 2021]; and (b) Now. In order to secure the Y2019 pricepoint must I select the 'Now' option? Or is it okay for me to select the 'when my plan next renews [Jul 2021]' choice?

Thanks in advance!

Yes but you might get very unlucky Terry and they just might do it

So will you just get 3 years instead of 5

On my wife's plan the $110 is just in her account pool so is this money taken out when he current plan expires in 2 years time so will it just sit there doing nothing for 2 years or do fastmail add it to her account to make it 5 years.
