free email accounts
email accounts provide web-based email for individuals and organisations
who would like an email address which is associated with the Dowse
name and the creative community around it, an address which is also
easy to remember, and which is web-based. Web-based email has the
advantage that it can be accessed from anywhere in the world on
any computer, so if you are travelling abroad, for example, or wish
to access your email from work or a friend's home, then this is
possible with web-based email. Typically, Dowse email is used by
writers, artists, musicians and others, as well as by those with
the surname "Dowse". It is open to everyone to sign up
for an account.

rules to which accounts we will allow to stand and which will be
deleted. We expect you to use your own name when opening an account,
and your account should only be used for legitimate purposes. Don't
waste your time and ours by setting up false or misleading accounts
- such accounts are routinely deleted.
note that Dowse email accounts are powered by Everyone.net, and

or those which break the rules, we do not have further control over

any information or material in your Dowse email account which you
want to keep. All enquiries about dowse email accounts should
be made to Everyone.net and not to Dowse.com.
