Two other _REAL_ options:
a) Find anyone on the net who is willing to let you have an email account
on their machine. That's how it always used to be done.
b)Get hold of someone who's willing to act as your mail relay, and
then change your email From: & Reply-To: addresses' to that host.
Then if you only have an IP number or whatever then the relay can just
forward it, or if you have nothing more than a dynamic IP then you can set
up sendmail to collect it for you from their machine.
c)Move to a reasonable ISP.
Personally I'd go with c.
