I guess you went thru part of the signup process to see it assigns a 
random string as your acct username / email address?
It told me the registration was "having problems."  How long was the 
random assigned name?

That'd be a bit tough sending mail to general people.  But, if you want 
I wonder if there's an option to enter a name that goes in front of the 
email user name, like most clients or even ISPs allow?

I guess it'd be fine for typical mail, but the entire size per message 
limit is 2 MB.
