- The username you select may contain
three to eight alphanumeric characters (letters and digits). This is
also called your 'login name'. It is the name by which you will
log into our network. It will also be used to form an email reply
address for you, which will be of the form 'firstname.lastname@example.org'. A
change in the username later will cost you $75, so pick one now that you
expect to be happy with.
- Your password must contain between six and eight
characters. It must be hard to guess, so it cannot just be a dictionary
word, name, etc. Include some lowercase characters, some uppercase
characters, and one or two special (non-alpha-numeric characters). Our
password checker is quite picky about what it will accept. If it
refuses to accept your selected password it will tell you why and you
may select another and try again.
- Your published full name as entered in the
online sign-up will be visible to other users with the 'finger' command,
and will also appear in the From: line of outgoing mail messages and any
Usenet News postings you make from the UNIX shell. A made-up name is
permissible provided it is not likely to offend, deceive, or defraud
anybody. This can be changed later but we discourage frequent changes,
so we suggest you pick something that you will be happy with. Most
customers just use their real name.
- The information in the
name and address must be accurate. This is how we will send you any
important notices by postal mail. False name and address information
may be grounds for termination of your account.
- Telephone numbers: Please provide as
possible, including work phone, home phone, pager number, fax number,
etc. With your phone number(s) include any other useful hints, e.g.,
best times to call, or write '(h)' to mean home phone,
'(w)' to mean work phone, '(day)' to mean a daytime
number, '(eve)' to mean an evenings/weekends number,
'(fax)' to mean fax, '(pager)' to mean pager, etc.
(We will normally call you only in an urgent
- Email address: If you have one or more current
email addresses, please provide them, separated by commas. Confirmation
of account creation will be emailed to you.
- Referred by: Please tell us how you heard
about a2i. If a specific a2i customer referred you, please give us that
person's name and (if known) login name at a2i.
- Note/comments: This area lets you make any
special requests briefly. This will alert us that special handling may
be needed. IMPORTANT: After your account is created, please send your
special requests again by email to email@example.com in more detailed
form. Any new email sent to firstname.lastname@example.org must include the word
nospam anywhere in the Subject line, otherwise it will be silently
discarded by our spam filter.
