permanent email address


New Email
please treat me gently as a new member!
My ISP is about to change the way emails are handled and will, I understand, change my email address.
Is there a straightforward way of owning a permanent address?
I dimly recall it was possible to create an address, perhaps attached to a web site of one's own, and to arrange for messages received to be automatically forwarded to the current ISP. Am I on the right lines?
