I pay very few bills online and I still get all bills on paper in the mail, but nearly all are set up to be paid automatically, without me having to do anything. I don't want to spend my time and money writing and mailing checks (or even going on line to pay) when I can just have the bills automatically paid.

I would hate to have you people on the jury trying someone who had assaulted me. [I won't even go to that other crime where the victim is regularly blamed. Really?]
I would keep trying to get the company to do the right thing. In the meantime, you know when your billing cycle ends. Mark it on your calendar. Give them a phone call two days later and find out what you owe. Request a duplicate bill be mailed. Send them a check. With the check, request a duplicate bill be mailed to you. This solves the late payment problem, and if you get lucky, you will have three copies of your bill.

I know others choose to do things in a more convenient way for them however it isn't convenient for me. I need a paper bill in hand for a specific reason. Sure I could print it out myself however why should I have to? Doesn't seem very frugal to me if I have to pay for the electricity to run my printer, supply the paper and ink when it is included in the costs of having service. I realize I am talking pennies here but still.....it is the principle of the thing sometimes that keeps our fire fueled.

This frees you from your provider forever (why I did it) and also looks more professional. Costs me $15 or $20 a year or so to have google register the domain (through godaddy) and provide and manage the email services for my domain.

Just FYI, Google now charges $50 a year (plus the $10 domain name registration fee if you register the domain through Google) to provide domain-name-based email addresses for a business domain through its Google Apps service. Anyone with an existing free account gets the $50 fee waived (at least for now), but no new free accounts can be created, except for non-profit and educational groups. If you want free email through Google for your business now, you're stuck with an @gmail.com email address.
There are still options to provide domain-name-based email addresses for free (well, free other than the domain name registration fee), such as through the registrar if they support email forwarding or through one of the companies that provide free DNS and email forwarding. The email forwarding services basically redirect your customized email address(es) to your ISP, Gmail, etc email address(es), rather than provide mailbox services like Google Apps does.
