I have an email address with yahoo.com from 25+ years back.

I am now considering switching to any other service provider.

 

Can i retain my current email ID of [email protected], even if i switch to a new domain?

if this is an option, please guide me.

From what i know you can always keep [email protected] its like google its not linked to your provider.

 

Email adresses that have the name of your provider you cannot keep in general.

@yahoo.com, @live.com etc are like street addresses (you cannot move house and use your old address)

So you cannot use them with another provider.

 

just start afresh with whoever you want to move to, you should be able to import your contacts quite simply.

That is right for email adresses that are connected to a provider. I believe Yahoo (but not 100% SURE) lik google en hotmail are free and can be moved.

Ok, then please elaborate on how you move @yahoo.com to hotmail.com, because that was what the OP asked about. What might be possible, is to keep the part of the address that is before the @-sign, if it is not already taken at the new chosen provider.

He asked if he can keep it yes he can. He does not have to use the email adress from his new provider at all. 

 

Maybe i misunderstood. What do you consider MOVING. 

 

Normally if you have a email adress from a provider you CANNOT keep it after you stop using that provider. But for stuff like hotmail and Gmail you can always keep them you can even set it to forward to your new email adress or even intergrate it with your mailbox in outlook.

1 question please:

 

Re: Service Provider, do you mean email service provider or Internet Service Provider (ISP)?

 

I have moved ISP many many many times (in Europe and In Asia), and I have still my Hotmail (opened when I still lived in Europe), Gmail, Yahoo email addresses and I still can send and receive email from them.

 

It would be totally different if you have an email address (for example) [email protected] and you want to move to isp2.com and still want to use [email protected]m.

 

If so, then you would need to talk to isp1.com if it's possible (for a fee) to retain your email address there.

 

I meant changing 'email service provider'.

So you’re saying goodbye to Gmail and moving to live (for eg) ?

Or are you wanting to use a programme like “Thunderbird” to read your emails on your computer ?

From what I understood...

 

You've been using a "yahoo E-mail address" for 25 years, you want to change your email service provider and you're asking whether you can keep you "yahoo E-mail address":

 

Straight and short answer: No, you can't!

Longer answer: since you want to leave Yahoo services you can't keep using the E-mail address (and E-mail services) provided by Yahoo.

 

Now, you can use your Yahoo, Gmail, Hotmail, whatever E-mail addresses with the CSP (= Communication Service Provider: 3BB, AIS, True, etc. in Thailand) of your choice.

 

You can, as well, "consolidate" your E-mail activity through a "client": Outlook (part of Office Suite, from Microsoft), Thunderbird (from Mozilla), etc.

 

Hope it'll help

Get Gmail features for your other email accounts

If you have a Yahoo, AOL, Outlook, Hotmail, or select non-Gmail accounts, use Gmail to get many of Gmail's features with that address.

To do this, you’ll need to link your account to Gmail. After you link your account, you’ll see all your messages in your Gmail inbox, plus these changes:

Your work, school, or business domain or alias, like @yourschool.edu or [email protected]

Another Gmail address
