Move to BT Mail


[link to this post]
 
'Later this year you will move to BT Mail'. Well, it is later this year and I'm still on Yahoo. And if BT don't improve their Homepage and kill the stupid adverts/stories they'll have a mass exodus to Outlook or similar.

Most people (inclduing me) suggest using Gmail or similar as main mail and only using ISP email where absolutely necessary (sometimes required to mail ISP itself, and a few sites won't accept free public email addresses). That makes it much easier when you need to change ISP. BE didn't even offer email services when they were my ISP.

Recently moved from BT Infinity 2 to PlusNet. Very happy so far.

Open a GMail account and forward your BT/Yahoo mail there.

Why do you rely on webmail?

Install an email client and everything will be there on your PC - no need to login, no adverts, no ridiculous stories ... you can keep the mail on the server as a back up or in case you are without your PC.

Or avoid the public email address issue by getting your own domain name for a few quid a year and pointing it at gmail (or similar).

And then if you want to move mail provider you can without having to tell everyone your new email address.

Sensible advice! Why do so many rely on slow inefficient webmail? Cuz their ISPs give them just a webmail URL for their ISP email addy? Also Windows these days does not come with a mail client as standard and they can't be bothered to look for one? Bring back OE bundled in Windows smile.
