Want an Arch Linux email address ? username@archlinux.us

NOTE:500 max. users !! Google won't approve any more users than I have already gotten approved for !! sad

ANOTHER NOTE: If you don't login to your account at least ONCE EVERY SIX MONTHS, I am going to assume you don't want it, and it WILL BE DELETED so it can be used by someone else who DOES want to use it. !!! You must login to the web interface https://mail.google.com/a/archlinux.us/#inbox

First come, first serve. Snooze, ya loose. tongue  big_smile big_smile  So get em while you can.... once their gone their gone.

I own www.archlinux.us and www.archlinux.mobi domains, both are used for email.
I would like to open it up for any arch user that would like to have an @archlinux.us email address.  I have had several requests from some members to have emails, and I gave them out to them. After some checking with a few other members, they thought it would be nice to offer it to everyone if I could. FWIW, I don't make anything out of making this available, it's just my way of contributing something back to the the community that makes the best version of Linux I've ever used.

Personally, I don't like messing with email servers much...... so, I opted for the easy way out wink  It's a branded gmail account, but it's pretty cool.  Another reason I opted for this method, if 500 people sign up, there would be NO way I could offer 7 gigs of space each......... I just don't have deep enough pockets lol.   Now, for the important stuff.

How to get an email:

For anyone wanting a @archlinux.us email address , please post the request in this thread.

I will setup your email address and email you your access information once it's setup. (As long as your email is visible here, or the form mail sends it to you from here).

If you want an email address the request must be posted in this thread or your
request will not be honored. This will assure me that you
are real people and not bots. If your not a member of archlinux.org forums you
will need to sign up and make at least the one post in this thread to
get an email address.

The email service is google's branded gmail. Currently approx 7 GB of space,
chat, calender, documents, and more. As such, the TOS information is
listed below.

Email Terms of Service are listed below:

http://www.google.com/a/help/intl/en/users/terms.html
http://www.google.com/a/help/intl/en/users/privacy.html
http://mail.google.com/a/archlinux.us/h … icies.html

PLUS:
archlinux.us does not guarantee ANYTHING in regards to the email service.
archlinux.us reserves the right to cancel service at any time without
notice for any reason.
archlinux.us has no official affiliation with archlinux.org
Any changes to the TOS will be posted in this thread ...... and the
TOS are subject to change without notice.
Unethical behavior will get your account suspended or closed, totally
at the discretion of the Site Administrators.

Account Inactivity
Google will terminate your account in accordance with Section 9 of the Terms of Use if you fail to login to your account for a period of nine months.

By posting your request , you agree to the Terms of Service and have
read this message.

basically, that's just cya stuff wink  I have no plans to shut down archlinux.us or archlinux.mobi ...... but crap happens...... I can't fortell the future.

Note to moderator -- if appropriate, could this be stickied please. Thanks, Crouse.

Edit: oh yeah, you must also love taco's and crunch for the Arch Linux F@H team tongue  (just kidding.....)

2nd Edit: I now also own the http://archlinux.biz domain (which forwards you to the place where you can buy archlinux case badges wink ----  http://schwag.neotuli.net/  neotuli's page. --- )

3rd Edit: Email limit was bumped to 500 by google.....so ask away ! wink

4th Edit:
Created a Ubiquity command "archmail"

5th Edit(11-17-2008): NOTE:
Reverted Back 11-20-2008 - crouse

6th EDIT (11-18-2008): PREVENT BOT HARVESTING !! Please don't post the entire email address you want (bots will scan pages and harvest your email address)...... please just post the USERNAME you want for the email address.  I'm smart enought to figure out the rest wink

CmdUtils.CreateCommand({
  name: "archmail",
  icon: "http://bbs.archlinux.org/favicon.ico",
  preview: "Archlinux.us email",
  execute: function() {
    openUrl( "https://www.google.com/a/archlinux.us/ServiceLogin?service=mail&passive=true&rm=false&continue=https%3A%2F%2Fmail.google.com%2Fa%2Farchlinux.us&ltmpl=default&ltmplcache=2" );
  }
})

If you have Ubiquity installed for firefox, you can go to archlinux.us to install it.

7th Edit:
NOTE:
A useful tip:
After logging into your account, go to:
Settings>Web Clips>
and UNCHECK the  "Show my web clips above the Inbox"

It gets rid of that annoying line of spam/ads above the main part of your messages.  wink

8th Edit:
Another tip.......check out the SETTINGS>LABS section to add all sorts of cool stuff !!!!

9th edit:
NOTE:
There will only be 500 emails allowed at this domain : Archlinux.us.
A new google "rule" went into effect Jan 2009.  They have only given me 500 accounts, and anything more than that they want me to "upgrade" to premium edition at $50 per account.... yeah.... I don't have THAT kind of money lol.  So, my limit is 500 ........ unless someone here works for Google and can pull some strings that I can't.  ~~~ Crouse

10th Edit: (04-11-2009)
http://archlinux.us >> portal that links to the archlinux.us email.
http://archlinux.mobi >> direct access for your cell phone to your email.
http://archlinux.me >> The NEWEST domain, links to a customizable Arch
Linux homepage.

Windows was made for looking at success from a distance through a wall of oversimplicity. Linux removes the wall, so you can just walk up to success and make it your own.

Re: Want an Arch Linux email address ? username@archlinux.us

Stickied for now, that's a great contribution. I'll pass, myself, since I have an @archlinux.org address already (that gets several thousand spams a month...), but great contribution!

This kind of fits in with Schwag, so if you send me an e-mail reminder, I can put a linkback on the schwag shop front page as well.

Two notes:
1) archlinux.us should say 'this site is *run* by', not "*ran*" by. (Sorry, Eduardo hasn't sent me the latest newsletter yet and my inner proofreader is getting bored :-D)

2) put a linkback to this thread on the archlinux.us site to tell people how to sign up!

Crouse, this is especially kind of you. Everyone seems to be using their forum monikers, so I'll break the trend and request ganman@archlinux.us. That's if it's okay with you--other use mentallaxative@archlinux.us.

1. ------ oops smile
2. Great Idea....... I hadn't thought of that smile Will do.  My youngest daughter just got out of surgery earlier, so I may not have a chance to update that right away, but I will.  I'll get new emails created ASAP when I get back online again tonight or tommorrow. Still waiting on google to approve more than the 100 that I started with.........

That email account can be SET to forward your email to another email account (it's basically a gmail account...... ). I don't do that, YOU would do that after an account was created. Not hard to set that up though once your logged in.
