That is your only question? Damn. You're easy. *grin*

There will be dual-T1s provided by my company since it will be hosted in
their corporate computer room free of charge.

I agree that this is true. They are the in full proposal if you care to
read it. I personally will be taking care of almost all of those. Some
of the duties will be handed off to others based on need and expertise.

I personally brought this up at the Red Tape event and threw it out due
to the on-going cost. For the functionality we are proposing it costs a
lot more through an ISP than the standard $19.95 cost. A year will
quickly out cost the cost of the system.

We are not talking about auto-foward aliases. We already have that

We are talking about actual mailboxes. We are planning for the case when
an officer changes hands that all of the information is retained. We are
planning for an officer being removed from office. We are planning for
an officer dieing.

That is no hassle. It's already done. I pay for it out of my own

Btw, the full proposal was posted to the Ansteorran list. I did not send
it to the individual regions. If you would like to look for it in the
archives, it can be found at:
