Changing Email From One ISP to Another

Written by charlie bradley | 13/05/2017

Changing from one Internet service provider to another often includes changing e-mail addresses from the old company to the new. Changing from one ISP's e-mail provider to another is an easy process which may include keeping your former e-mail account open for a short time, or exploring options for keeping the former account open permanently in addition to using the new e-mail account.

Minimal Fee

Many Internet service providers charge a small fee to allow users to keep an existing e-mail account open when the customer chooses to change Internet service providers. If you use your e-mail for conducting business, keeping contact with your child's school or simply don't want to inconvenience your friends by using a different e-mail address, you can pay the small fee each month to your former ISP in order to keep your e-mail account active.

Automated Email Configuration

If you do move your e-mail, use the installation CD provided by the new Internet service provider to set up each e-mail address which is associated with the new Internet service account. Incoming and outgoing Internet servers are automatically configured during the automated set-up process. You will need to use the "Tools" option in your e-mail program to delete e-mail settings related to the previous e-mail account.

Third-Party Applications

Choose a third-party application such, as True Switch, to notify friends, family and business contacts of your new e-mail address, forward e-mail to the new address for one month and to cancel your former e-mail address when you have notified contacts and moved all important messages to the new e-mail address. Third-party companies usually charge a fee to manage the migration of your e-mail from one address to another.
