sneakemail is no longer free

well, y'know what they say, all good things must come to an end and the free ride at appears to be one of those things. as of sometime earlier this month moved to a paid service and existing accounts were switched over to the one month trial setup.

if you're using sneakemail then this is probably something you want to know about (i found out quite by accident) because when the trial is over your emails won't get forwarded to your real email address anymore.

i've been using sneakemail for years now, and directing others their way. it's a great service and it's helped me keep spam in check so i don't want to say that their service isn't worth the $2 a month fee, but recurring charges are the bane of my existence so i'm not sure what i'm going to do. this is complicated by the fact that i have so many addresses with them (most of which get no traffic, but still). switching to another service would be a pain due to a several years long habit of using sneakemail as well as all the existing addresses i'd have to switch over. plus there's no guarantee that the next one will turn out any better in the long run. paying the fee would also be a pain, and an ongoing one at that.

but enough of my griping - you're now forewarned, go do something about your account if you're a sneakemail user. you have less than 30 days.
