Question about Computers & Internet
I have a new email addres with a newer company and need to change my hotmail address to the new one but don't know how to do this can you help?
If you have an email address with another company, there is no way you
can link up your hotmail to it directly. You will have to take note of
all of your contacts, and re-add them manually, and perhaps send mail
out to all of them to let them know the address has changed.
It used to be in the past, that microsoft would allow automatic forwarding of emails, however, they have since discontinued that, so you will have to check it frequently, to make sure people "get the message", so to speak, OR
There is another method. I don't usually keep the habit of openly advocating Microsoft products (Open source opens the door for so much more possibilities), however, I have found Windows Live Mail to be quite useful in circumstances for this. you can try one of two things, which can help with it-
1.) Run both accounts in the same client. You can accomplish this in the program, by using the "add accounts" feature to add your email accounts in. this will allow you to check your email and send messages in both clients, at least for alittle while. You will need to do a bit of searching for your new email companies "pop3/SMTP or IMAP settings", to configure your accounts for usage, however.
2.)Run both accounts in the Live Mail client, and transfer your old mail over to the new account. This can only be done if the new company you are with provides IMAP settings. All you would need to do once this is accomplished, is to Drag n Drop the messages over from folder to folder. I've tried this when transferrign mail from a client's hotmail account to her gmail account (with her supervision, of course).
3.) continually forward the mail over to your new account. easiest method available, and semi-effective, if you don;t mind the "fwd"s and your own email signature being marked on every message.
There is however, no way to transfer contacts, except manually. Sorry, but there is no easy way out when migrating email accounts. The companies just don't like each other.
Hope this helps. let me know if you need additional help with my suggestions, but let me know what company you switched to first.
