I don't see it as a 'promise', if you also take into consideration their first 2 points in their FAQ's:

https://www.pobox.com/faq

I expect though that many people will treat that 'email for life' as set in stone, and so I daresay Fastmail will get grief about it as they did back in 2017:

Is shouldn't be a problem for Pobox to add their 15 domains to Fastmail's domains, so all their customers who use one of these domains won't have any issues if/when this happens.

I noticed that Helen Horstmann-Allen, who came along when Fastmail acquired POBox.com, is no longer listed on the management team of FM. She was the COO of Fastmail. https://www.fastmail.com/company/about/

Having worked for another email service provider with many Australian clients I can say that it is very difficult for US teams to collaborate with those down under because of the time difference. I had to stay up until midnight or 2am to be able to cover some of their day, and after a couple of years I thought I was going to die from sleep deprivation. Where I live it was very hard to sleep after about 6am-7am because the neighbors would start moving trash cans or begin leaf blowing, plus everyone else in the household was up and about.

Helen was one of the founders of Pobox.

Also are out of staff: Rob Norris and Nicola Nye.
Although, they are from Australia.

Yes - a lot of changes going on... Looks like Rob Mueller seems to be more in business than before... He now s the CTO of the company and it looks like he is much more in focus.
