Re: Replacing Freeserve Email on PC

Sheesh. Sorry mate – am lost again.

I set up Freeserve a thousand years ago and have lived since then.

I did manage to obtain a new GMail login addy! I thought that would be enough to transfer my emails to?! Clearly not.

Sorry to test your patience, but can you send me the relevant GMail instructions again please.

I play the guitar very well and can ski (a bit). I mean we’re all good at something

Tony

Re: Replacing Freeserve Email on PC

Nope. Still lost!

 

I truly have no idea what is going on here.

 

"Things are only easy when you know how!!"

 

Am thinking of just forwarding the emails I want to keep (by email) to my new GMail account!
I will then do the same with my Contacts.

 

I can then concentrate on telling all my Utilities, Ticket companies, Govt agencies, Banks, etc my new email address.  One by one. Deep joy.

Re: Replacing Freeserve Email on PC

I'm sorry you couldn't get it to work. Any particular stage you are stuck at?

 

If you don't set up your GMail a/c in WLM, you won't be able to continue using WLM at home to read your emails & will have to rely on GMail Webmail only.

 

Beware of forwarding too many emails in a short space of time. It will seem like the hallmark of a spammer, altho' you are doing it legitimately, & it might lock your a/c. It appears v. difficult, but possible, to unlock it.
