Goatse Mail

What is Goatse Mail?

Goatse Mail will offer email addresses on the internet's most awesome domain: Goatse.cx. Users will be able to have their very own @goatse.cx email address using their existing Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail or Outlook.com account.

How Does It Work?

Goatse Mail takes advantage of the relatively little known 'send as' functionality offered by the major webmail providers, including Gmail, Yahoo Mail, Hotmail and Outlook.com. 'Send As' allows users to use their existing webmail account (eg. example@gmail.com) to send messages with another email address listed as the sender (eg. example@goatse.cx).

Essentially, you will be able to send, receive and store your @goatse.cx email using your existing Gmail, Yahoo Mail, Hotmail or Outlook.com account.

Once you have been allocated your @goatse.cx email account, setting up 'send as' in Gmail, Yahoo Mail, Hotmail or Outlook.com takes minutes. Sending email via your integrated email account is as easy as changing the email address in the pull down menu.

In this video I setup the @goatse.cx account in gmail.com and send email in 56 seconds while playing the piano: http://youtu.be/CFY9YsTnMlc

How Much is Goatse Mail?

Each account costs $50 for 10+ years.

What Does '10+ Years' Mean?

I wanted to offer accounts "$50 For Life" but for legal reasons I am unable to offer services "For Life". Instead, it is $50 with a 10 year service and I will then attempt to keep the service going without further charges. Moore's Law will have hopefully reduced the running costs significantly by 2023, and the email forwarding will likely be cheap enough for me to keep the service running in perpetuity. In summary - I have every intention of maintaining this indefinitely but for legal reasons I can only commit to 10 years.

The money pledged will be used to fund the maintenance of the email forwarding service and hopefully pay off the cost of purchasing the domain.

Can I have my picture on Goatse.cx?

Yes you can by choosing the 'Goatse Hall of Fame' Perk. Each picture must be of the dimensions 125X125 pixels. Pictures may be linked to the site of your choice. Pictures will remain on Goatse.cx for at least 10 years. All pictures and links must comply with the .cx (Christmas Island) registry Terms and Conditions. Unfortunately 'hello.jpg' does not comply :(


How Do I Sign Up?

1. Search For Your Name: Go to Goatse Search and search for the name you want. I am updating the database manually, so there is a chance that someone may have already taken that name earlier in the day - this is more likely with a 'popular' name. Search here: http://www.goatse.cx/search/

2. Select 'Perk': Select a Perk from the right side bar.

3. Make Payment: Fill out the information provided and make a payment using either your Credit Card or Paypal.

4. Forward Your Indiegogo Confirmation Email: Forward the Indiegogo confirmation email you receive to accounts@goatse.cx. Please include in the email:

a) Include Your Chosen @Goatse.cx Email: Include the @goatse.cx account names you want (eg. example@goatse.cx). Please select 3 preferences in order to avoid disappointment.

b) Include Your Existing Email Address: The destination account you want it to forward to (eg. example@gmail.com).

c) Include picture / link: Attach 125X125 picture and include a link (Goatse Hall of Fame only).

* Please ensure that you read the terms and conditions prior to any purchase.

How soon do I get my account?

Accounts will be setup manually as soon as possible, I am aiming for within 48 hours of purchase.

Are any names not available?

KirkJ is not available and is reserved for someone very important. I have also restricted names that imply ownership of the site and may confuse people: eg. 'support' and 'admin' etc.

Is Kirk Johnson involved?

Unfortunately Kirk is not involved in this Goatse launch. I have repeatedly attempted to get him on board but he has not responded. It is not easy to find Kirk.

Will emails get flagged as spam?

The domain goatse.cx and associated IP address is not on any known spam blacklists. I have not had any email flagged as spam during my testing of the service.

Why has this taken so long?

Sorry it took a while to get this launched - I wanted to do this properly and provide a service that is comparable to the market leaders - Gmail, Yahoo Mail, Hotmail etc. The obvious option was to use Google Apps to offer Gmail on the domain, but this would have been too expensive ($50 per year per user). Fortunately, I can now offer a service that fully integrates with existing email services. Apologies for the slightly convoluted signup process.

Terms and Conditions

The goatse.cx lawyer has informed us that we need a terms and conditions. Please read them prior to using the service. Goatse.cx is presently not owned or affiliated in any way with Google, Microsoft or Yahoo.
