    and i also have a hotmail one (that only gets looked at every 30 days to keep it active) its about 3-4 years old, possibly a little older.

    I have had it for more than a year probably. Actually, I think more like 1 year and 8 months or something like that. As long as iFroggy Mail has been in existence!

    hmmm. Tricky.

    Original e-mail address (accessed through "Pine") circa 1993. First Hotmail account was I think '95 (pre msn - but at the time when such things were considered a little dodgy). Currently I posses a ridiculous number of accounts, and use just about all of them. I'd say around 2 years would be a mean figure....

    I've had mike@ignmail.com since 1996 I believe it was. Evidently I was one of the first users to sign-up for IGN's free e-mail service as I was able to get 'mike' and not 'mike23124' or 'mike196'.

    Oh, and it also receives loads of spam...probably due to my frequent posting of it on message boards (like this very post).

    I have had mine for over a year now. It is my regular adress from my ISP, before that I had a Hotmail account, since I didn't want my e-mail to land in my dad's inbox .
