Plan ahead if you want to change your ISP

Kathleen Atkins

Lounge member mike21 wants to switch his ISP when his current contract ends.

How does he most effectively avoid losing his contacts, any new mail sent to his old email address after he makes the switch, and his old emails, too?

He poses his questions in the Applications Servers forum, where he is well-advised on various aspects of email management. This is a good thread to read.
