Mail Forwarding... Why would you do it?Written by Steve

Why would people even use such a service? Anonymity is simple answer, or people who choose to keep their identity secret from others. There are many reasons for doing this, most legitimate reason for using such services is for people who move around and do not have one stagnant address. Although services are set up by legitimate vendors, there are customers who wish to evade law and have private documents sent without detection. These customers can harm or damage vendor's reputation and if any prohibited material is detected they can often face heavy charges.
There are many vendors out there who provide this service, I am not going to recommend any particular vendor but I do advise that you shop around and take a look at their history and talk to other customers who have used their services. All vendors are located in multiple countries; you should take a look at their country of origin, what privacy laws are enforced there, what is their law enforcement like? Then take a look at site. Read their privacy statement, try to understand it. Make sure you fully understand their terms of service. You do not want to be stuck with a huge fine, or if you're trying to keep yourself anonymous, you don't want to have your private information public. Or worst of all have them read your private mail!

How to choose VoIP service without losing your shirtWritten by Jason Stewart

Last but not least you must make sure that your your internet connection is suitable for voip. Sorry 56k'ers but dialup just isn't gonna cut it for voip. If you do have a broadband connection, head on down to http://www.testyourvoip.com and do a quick test.
2.Qualify a Specific Provider Your voip provider means everything when it comes to reliability and sound quality. You should choose a provider that has features that you need (call waiting, 3 way calling, extra lines, distinctive ring, etc.). One thing to definitely look into is 911 service that's offered and don't be afraid to ask lots of questions to customer service department of prospective provider. Number portability (if you need to keep your old number) is something else to be looked into. The rates should be competitive and don't forget to look at international rates if you do any international calling. The most important thing to look for in a voip provider is a money back guarantee. If there is no money back guarantee, then pass on that provider; just about all voip companies have a guarantee.
3.Research provider Just because everything looks OK from a customer service angle, service is cheap , and does what you need it to does not necessarily make it a good service. What does make a service good is if they have happy customers. The best way to do this would be to search better business bureau for complaints against company, search google with something like reviews, complaints, opinions, etc. A great place to get real world opinions on voip service is at forums at http://www.broadbandreports.com.
