engineers re email address that I have from Mail.Com which allows me
to change ISP without having to change my actual address to my clients (it's
like a post office box which forwards all mail to me no matter where I am -
I only need to keep it updated on any ISP changes that I make).

Dennis, did you know that, as a "DSL guy", you actually can get along just
fine WITHOUT an ISP?

It's true. Just create your own domain name, set up an email server, and
you're on your way. Your "ISP" then really is just your connection to the
net; you don't need their "servers" any more.

Note that this applies only if you have a Static IP, or at least if you have
a set of IP numbers--aka a network--that are exclusively yours.

Saving $30 to $50 per month ain't bad, in that case.
