Re: Orange Email closure 31st May 2017: Help and advice

I am looking at potential domain names and just out of curiosity I note that myaddressfreeserve.co.uk seems to be available which would be the same as I have now minus a dot before freeserve. Would EE (or indeed BT who I believe now own EE) object to the use of the freeserve name in this way please?

No, it's isn't EE's domain & if it is on sale you are free to have it,

Hi TiffJ

Does the closure of Orange email also means loss of access to the calendar and contacts too.  As example I have items in calendar which currently sends me a SMS message to my EE phone on requested date, as a reminder - will this be lost also??

 

Kind Regards,

Keith

@kloughlin: Once Orange email closes on 31 May, everything goes. You can use nowt thereafter.

Re: Orange Email closure 31st May 2017: Help and advice

I can't begin to describe the frustration and indeed anger, that I feel at the decision to close down my Freeserve email account. I have paid my dues and stuck with the company through all of the changes it has gone through over the years but is seems that brand loyalty only goes in one direction. The inconvenience caused has been beyond description. My email address is known to literally hundreds of correspondents world wide and the task of notifying them of an impending change of address is both tedious and time consuming. Add to that the efforts I've  had to make with the utilities, banking and other companies that I do business with - which has included the necessity to close and reopen some accounts - and it soon becomes obvious that this change is not as simple as you have stated. I have had enough. I will not be renewing any of my contracts, mobile, landine or broadband once the current ones run out. Don't bother to reply - there's nothing you can say that I'm interested in hearing.

@Snertspop: You shouldn't need to close and reopen accounts just cuz of a change of email addy. What organisations are forcing you to do this? It would be useful knowledge for other users.

@Spinningplates: GMail lets you create things called Labels which look like folders.

 

Any decent email client on your PC would allow you to create a folder structure & selectively filter emails to them.
