Not too many people still have working FidoNet email accounts. I think that
the OP asked for oldest working (as in still working) email accounts.

I'd love to argue mine is still the oldest listed, 1989. I have my own
reservations as I had a cbnews.att.com, attmail.com and
I'm not certain that att.com worked in 1989 (sorry 1988 - I was a contractor
at the Hadley Rd Hotline when I got that email ID).

Okay I still have a case for the oldest working. My attmail.com just
arrived in my work mailbox! :-)
