CommEx isn't a free e-mail and web service like Geocities or Fortune City. We don't have the resources to provide facilities for thousands of people, either technically or financially. It's a community project instead, allowing people access to a POP3 e-mail service and web space based on a principle of sharing. We require users to make a small donation towards the cost of keeping the service running, so that we can offer certain services free.
The main services that we will be providing free of charge are mailing lists, for group discussions on any subject under the sun. If you'd like to take advantage of this facility, please contact the administrators via firstname.lastname@example.org. To find out about the e-mail and web services, click on the buttons at the bottom of the page.
The aim of the Community Exchange is not to make money; it is to make it easier for people to communicate, via e-mail and the web, and to enable them to do so in a way independent of where they receive their net access. For more information about the philosophy, follow the Why? link at the bottom of this page.
The Community Exchange is a project from Digital Diversity; you can find out all about them from their own web site by clicking on the link. The main administrator is Nigel Whitfield, who provides the technical resources for the system and keeps the machines ticking over.
