So in case you did not notice through the big, giant alert that was thrown in your face when you visited the forums today, there was a rule update today. Sorry about the alert, I hit the stop button a little too late.
Someone pointed out to me that I had removed the freemail exception note when the rules were revamped so long ago, and whined via email about it. I have put the exception rule back in. The rule reads, in short, if you don't have access to your ISP's mail account, mail me and I'll make an exception for you.
