well, i have decided to integrate email services with Google Apps Standard Edition. the major benefit (for me at least) is that i am no longer required to only check my e-mail through an email client such as microsoft outlook, as i can now either go that route or use a browser to check it. because of this, i have ditched mail2web.com for exchange services. so, anyone who ever reads this shit and has my mail2web.com address, you can delete it.
for whatever it's worth, anyone who wants an @afxnet.net email inbox (with contacts/calendar support as well), just hit me up.
