    My ISP just discontinued their static IP services, first time I ever heard of a provider do that, so before I go ISP shopping can someone tell me what other options there are? one of my email set-ups must have static pointer records.

    Most ISP's that do not offer a static IP, offer one for a monthly fee. You should try negotiating on that. Else, a proxy/VPS should serve your purpose if you satisfied with everything else i terms of speed, customer support etc

    Exactly, I was paying the monthly fee for the static services, and they contacted me and said they are discontinuing their static services for all their clients, I never heard of an ISP having business services and then dropping them........Anyhow, thanks for your info, I will venture in that direction.

    depending on your needs, you can use a dyndns account with their client updater software.

    like that, you can link your dynamic ip to a domain name. i think (not sure) that they also offer static ip :p

    Thanks man, I was on Dyn.dotcom earlier looking for options too, I am going to go back and inquire if they have statics. I like both replies, thanks guys. I have 2 email set-ups for years now but I think its time to upgrade, my set-ups work great but they are a lot of time and maintinence, I'm on a search now for something a bit more self sufficient...thanks again.
