    I found this and wonder if it's possible to make money selling email addresses from hotmail or gmail. Looks interesting.

    Has anyone tried this? And if so, did you have any success?

    Heck if it's worth $50 thats pretty good for paying nothing to get the addy, right....;)

    I've seen stuff like this work before. People sometimes demand really nice usernames to websites, forums, email accounts, etc. The only problem is you're going to really have to spread yourself out to get a lot of business. You'll need to cater to lots of sites like myspace, facebook, youtube, gmail, yahoo, homail, etc. It can be a lot of work manually but if you had a program you could automate it all.

    You could target different businesses and register that name then contact them and offer them that name.
