I have received notice that my freeserve email is closing but no news re my fsmail account. Is this also closing? I am a pensioner and would appreciate the easiest way to move these accounts. I already have a google account but have read that doing anything with the fsmail account is difficult. Advce for this Luddite would be appreciated. Also, I should add that this has been handled in a very unsatisfactory way for all your customers.

Read Fsmail importing email issues for importing your FSMail emails into GMail.
For contacts, there is no "Export Contacts" in FSMail.net. Have a look at this handy guide on How to create edit csv files on the Microsoft support pages to see how you can construct a file that can be imported into your GMail contacts.
You can only transfer your contacts from Orange to GMail by getting Orange Webmail to generate a .CSV file & importing that file into GMail Contacts.
