you can visit the bookshop at:

and when you order a few books, a small fee will be going to the IUOMA and you will get some lovely books on Mail-Art.

On this page I will keep IUOMA members up to date on how the financial situation is for IUOMA on NING. According to the new guidelines by NING the hosting costs 588 USD (=539 Euro at current rates) when paid on a yearly basis.


For 2019-2020 : 519 EURO is brought up by members/sponsors (paid for)

For 2020-2021 : 506 EURO is brought up by members/sponsors (paid for)

For 2021-2022 : 65 euro needed (441 brought up by members/sponsors)

For 2022-2023 : 506 euro needed

Thanks for all the donations! You people keep this platform alive for all!

update : July 23rd 2021

The exchange-rate of USD-EUR might change the numbers a bit. And if NING changes it rates again, the table changes too!

Remember that solidarity is necessary for us to continue. I hope everyone can carry their burden.

Today is a great day to support the IUOMA with a donation!

The International Union of Mail Artists was created 33 years ago today.

The bill for another year on NING has just been paid. Thanks for all the sponsors that helped IUOMA to keep it a free and advertising free place.

The complete network is archived by the Internet Archive. So that is accesible for everyone.

Is it possible to transfer the "heavy" Gbyte old groups and the old video postings to IUOMA at Facebook before deleting them here at ning? That way we will keep the historic postings for future generations to see.

Or...perhaps, Ruud, you could save all the "old" stuff to a Tbyte hard disc and keep it in your TAM archive, to post to ning if ever there is a need. Hoping there is a way to reduce the "bytes" at ning so as not to pay a high price, but still have an archive somewhere to save IUOMA history.

Yes, I did that, but they only show pricing up to 100GB.  I started a chat and was told that the next level was 1TB for $500 US / month.  If they had a 500GB level we'd be set for quite awhile and it'd have to be cheaper than the 1TB quote.

Deleting inactive groups (no activity for years) is an option, but it is also deleting our history.

I do know that this website is indexed by, so the complete data is there too some way.

with 100 Gbyte they will ask 82 US$ a month.

The current archive is 321 Gbyte. SO quite expensive still.

If you want to donate to get IUOMA-publications into archives and museums please mention this with your donation. It will then be used to send some hardcopy books into museums and archives.
