An E-mail POP (post office protocol) account is an actual E-mail box located on the server for which the address is made. When E-mail is sent to a real POP account, the mail is stored on the server until the user logs in with their E-mail software and downloads it.
You can use my E-mail POP for your website.

Internic, or Network Solutions, was the original domain name licensing authority for the United States. They previously had a monopoly on domain name registration that was granted to them by the US Department of Commerce, until November, 1999, when competition was enforced and they were required to share their database and registry services with anyone who qualified as a registrar. ICANN is the newly appointed organization that oversees domain name registration issues.

I am so glad the Internic has changed.

Gamefan was a company owned by Express.com that sold banner ads and provided webspace to gaming sites like VoodooExtreme and SomethingAwful (who recently switched to another company and has a law suit running against Express.com).
Here's a quote from one of the affiliates from the Gamefan network to one of their own hosted site :

I apologize for the short notice on this. I just received an e-mail from our hosts, GameFan Network, that they will no longer be providing hosting to any sites. ... This means that we cannot provide reliable hosting for the foreseeable future, even if we do secure new hosting. I strongly recommend you begin transferring your sites off immediately, as GFN says all access will be revoked by Monday
(Thanks PlanetCrap)
So what does this mean ?
This means that next to Gamefan's own portal site already being down, ALL their hosted sites (and next in line the hosted sites from the affiliates) are going down and will probably receive 0 money that Gamefan owns them for selling banner ads.
Those of you that have been following the problems Lowtax from SomethingAwful had with Gamefan/Expres.com probably saw this coming, but all in all it's still a pity that networks like these just don't play it fair and try to not pay their affiliates and come up with all kinds of excuses and then just shut down.
Funny note : on Express.com's own site there's no mentioning of Gamefan shutting down what so ever. Guess they can miss bad publicity...
Gamefan magazine was the best game magazine of the 90's.
