I use onet.(eu|pl) as a "dual purpose" free email accounts used also as
spamtraps. The addresses have been "advertised" for *many* years, I do not
want to "waste" the accumulated effort ;-)
IMHO onet is too close to philosophy "no money, no (true) responsibility".

I could switch to gmail at any time but gmail "dev-nulls" my own mails 
sent by mail list servers, it keeps *only* copy of message sent to
mailing list. It is behavior I "double +dislike" so I use gmail to
receive messages from mailing lists and another account to send to
mailing lists.

Could you suggest another free email account/service for sending to
mailing lists?
