Yes, I have been thinking about doing this for a very long time.  I have
thought of a number of things for why it is not good, but not many for doing

1.    If they are using the mud, they already have an Internet account, and
so an e-mail address.
2.    If they are using the mud, they can just go to hotmail and get a
better account than could be offered by the mud.
3.    If they have an e-mail address on the mud, they might use it for
things they shouldn't, such as spam.

However, it is good because

1.    Being able to get and receive e-mail through the mud would be really
2.    It would enhance the mud and make it much more attractive to people.

Another however, is that I cannot think of any other good things for it.

 However, if they are using the mud, they probably already have an e-mail
account, so it doesn't actually *help* them.

This sounds to me more like a Freshmeat approach, I would willingly
set up a website for this, 'cept I have no clue where to start, and I
really stink at designing websites (The behind code on the other
hand.. :)

Duh.. not really anything in my mind right now

Has anyone besides me toyed with the idea of letting players receive
email through the mud, such as <playername>@domain .. I have been
thinking about it, and I think it would be a nice idea, even though
I'm pondering how to do it, should be something with :
Received mail for a playername ends up in the mailfile, and the
player can then check it, maybe even reply.. Ugh.. now I'm rambling
again.. :)
