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.

How do you delete old email 'address'es in my computer file


Which email account ?

Erase Email Addresses in My Computer


Email addresses can be stored on a computer if you use email software, such as Microsoft Office Outlook and Yahoo Messenger Beta.


Deleting email addresses manually from these programs does not actually completely erase them from your computer.


To erase email addresses permanently, meaning that a hard drive recovery program will not be able to restore them if it is used, requires a process called formatting, which completely erases the information on a hard drive.


Click on the shortcut "My Computer," which you can locate on your desktop.


Right click "Local Disk (C:)" and select the "Format" option.


Change the "Allocation Size Unit" to "Default Allocation Size."


Click the "Start" button.

The email addresses, as well as the rest of the files on the hard drive, will now be erased.


Delete a Live Mail Email Address


Windows Live Mail is a part of the Windows Live suite of productivity and entertainment programs, and it is intended to be the new free email client for Windows beginning with Windows 7.


After trying Windows Live Mail, you may decide that you have added too many email addresses and that you would prefer to use the email client to check only one address.


Remove an email address from Windows Live Mail to reduce the clutter in your email inbox.
Launch Windows Live Mail, and browse to the "Tools" menu at the top of the screen.


Click "Accounts."

Click the email account that you would like to delete.


Click the "Remove" button.

A message will appear to remind you that any messages belonging to the email account that are not backed up in another location will be deleted permanently.


Click "OK" to confirm.

The account will be deleted immediately.


Click "Close" to return to Windows Live Mail.


Delete Hotmail Adresses


Log in to your hotmail account and click "Help."


Search for "Cancel Account" and select "Why are all my email messages gone?"

Expand the option that says "Close a free Hotmail account" and click "Windows Live Hotmail close account."


Click "Close Account" on the page that opens.


If you do not sign in to your account for 365 days, your account will also be deleted.





Hope this helps.

I need to notify all my contacts of an email address change


In my opinion, the best way is to export your contacts from your previous Gmail account and import them into your new account.

You could then send an email from your new account alerting your contacts that your email has changed.

You can get more information about importing, exporting, and syncing contacts in Gmail's Help section.

Just gone from virgin to sky and was told i could use my old e.mail address but nothing can not get my e.mails virgin said that now i have switched i have no access apart from ringing sky and being on...


NO! Nio if you had a virgin address tom@virgin.com or whatever. once you switch to another carrier your emails are rejected back to the sender until you advise them of your new address Tom@sky.com or whatever.

If your addres was like Tom@hotmail.com then it doesn't matter what carrier you have as you are dealing with webmail that can be collected by any new carrier via an email client like Express or your choice of email clients.
