I still have a surviving e-mail account from 1996.  It wasn't that far from mainstream even then.

 /my Fidonet node goes back to the late 80s but I haven't maintained it since maybe 1992//think Fidonet is still around though, for some reason

I had an email account in 1973. No @ sign. That wouldn't be until 1982 or thereabouts.

My 1996 account's still in daily use. Though I think the ISP might finally be killing it off this year, which would be sad but they aren't that concerned.

I had a work email ID in 1982, when I was a college kid interning at IBM.

We used an internal email program back in 1994 called "CC Mail". Not sure what that was but it was sure fancy back in the day!

I still have an email account from about 1987 or so... Back then we often had to include a partial bang path, and email could take a few days just to across town.
