WHAT IS MY EMAIL ADDRESS HERE? The default is: firstname.lastname@example.org You are welcome to use: email@example.com Its really your preference. All of these have MX (Mail Exchangr) records pointing to our SMTP server, so you'll get mail all the same by using either of them. You may also apply tags to your email address between your login ID and the @ sign. This is useful to determine where you've given out specific email addresses to, such as for mailing lists. In this case your address could look something like this: firstname.lastname@example.org The tag above is '+job-search' and could be useful if you are posting a resume online which you know could generate spam later. If you did start receiving spam at that address, as an ARPA member, you could use procmail to filter out all email to that address and discard it. IMPORTANT: No matter what machine you login in to, your address always defaults to email@example.com. There are a number of other domains listed here, most of which are only available to ARPA members as their URL. However, these URL domains can be used for email address with a VPM membership. If you are interested in having, say 'firstname.lastname@example.org' as your email address rather than say 'email@example.com', you can do this by using the 'setvmail' command as a MetaARPA member.
