This is the same for me - I had several boards on EZBoard and was subscribed
to a few of other people's boards. I found myself getting behind by
two-three weeks on the webboards. I've never been more than two days behind
on email - and I use only web-based email.

My experience with EZBoard showed that most people had a really hard time
with the concept of waiting for a confirmation email before getting access
to a webboard. 70% of the people who signed up sent me an email saying the
boards were broke cause they signed up and then got "denied".
