At present I have dial up. I would like to get wireless high speed. My present computer is a used one and i would like to get a new one with windows 7. I am paid up until July for the dial-up and I would like to keep it till then, to give me time to adjust to the new one and would also use the wireless. Since I can't keep my email address, how do I get, my web sites that have my email address for the user name, like MySpace etc.? I can't keep my old SP, they don't have high speed in this area. :confused: Thanks

Any web site where you have a login (user name and password) will have a profile where your email address is recorded. You have to go to each site and change the email address. For others your corespondent with, you can send 1 email to all the recipients in your address book with the new email address.

I use a web based email so I don't have to ever change it. There are a number of them available (Yahoo, Gmail, MyWay, hotmail, etc). Most have the capability of being able to download via POP3 or IMAP using Outlook Express so you can retrieve emails you want on your computer hard drive. I use Gmail myself.

I hope this answers your question.:)

I would think you would have to go back through each website your involved in to update your e-mail address's.... just a big maybe there maybe a forward option with your dial-up service. I graduated to DSL a long while back but I still keep my dial-up for both a back-up incase my DSL fails, "which rarely happens" and I do get to peek at some of the random e-mails, that just goes to if it's worth the expense.

I actually like RAYBRO's answer here, though you would still have to update all of your website contacts. My actual "Main" e-mail is through a website that I own and maintain, and download via POP3 in OE.
