They'll probably kick me off on the 25th anyway.
I've been checking that inbox for five years now, even though most mails I sent were sent as cs.wisc.edu. The convenience of Wiscmail web mail (and the fact that they had an IMAP server) kept me from abandoning the account entirely. I'd just forward everything to it.
My forwarding scheme looked like this:
2 gmail accounts -> firstname.lastname@example.org -> email@example.com
But, for the last five years, there's been a 100MB size limit on the inbox. Ugh. Not to be a company cheerleader, but you should be able to beat that.
DoIT sucks. I remember working with them in my old job. They're like the campus technology Kremlin.
Anyway, I'll be using the CS department's IMAP server for all my personal stuff now.
i second the good riddance to that handled by DoIT -- i remember working for them...the good memories were those that have me breaking rules!
