    I already have a .edu school address, and a work address for the company I work for... but I need to get a good secondary email address for recreational and bills. Right now I have random Ron Paul emails going to my .edu, bestbuy coupons being sent to my office, etc.

    Does anyone know of a good email service that I can access from work (gmail, hotmail, yahoo, etc. all blocked). Maybe one that's a little less well known and hasn't been blocked?

    Have you tried using an email address from your ISP?

    have you tried going to gmail, yahoo or hotmail through the secured layer?

    example:
    https://www.gmail.com

    Sometimes companys forget to block the secured layer.

    ... and sometimes when companies find out that you are going around their filter they fire you.

    thanks for the advice but I tried it and it came up with the same block.

    any other ideas?

    Honestly not really.

    Actually yeah I do.

    It is complicated and a complete pain in the ass.

    Take your machine at home and run Outlook (or OE) on it and create a new set of rules.
    Set the rules up so that people who you want to chat with get forwarded to your work address.
    You can even set up a special rule that says something like, "if subject line contains 'workaddress' then forward email to work"

    If you have the patience you can even set it up so that when you email something to home it will forward it to the correct person.
