Lost email access
« on: August 07, 2015, 02:11:55 PM »
Hello All,

Just in case anyone on here has been trying to contact me via email, I'm afraid that I have lost email access. The company I use gave notice that they were closing in the autumn, but it seems to have changed in the last couple of days to right now!!

I tried setting up an alternative the night before last, but it didn't work out.

Having had a full day yesterday I thought I'd have another bash with it today. The site's been taken down and the phone contacts are all not recognised.

I've been using them since I started online years ago, so this is a big shock.

I apologise if you're trying to get hold of me. Hopefully I'll get something sorted before I'm due to go away.

Cheers, Nigel

My solution was to register my own domain name about 10 years ago, then forward all email to that address on to whoever is my current service provider. Emails arrive within minutes.
There are plenty of companies providing the service, it only costs about ?5 every 2 years, and I can change internet companies or countries whenever I like without changing my email address.
