Re: how to keep comcast email after move

Are you asking if you can retain the same email name if you move to a new location but still with Comcast service?

or

Are you asking if you can keep your comcast email address if you move to another ISP?

Re: how to keep comcast email after move

Helpful hints:  If you are changing ISP's: 


Before your account is closed & you no longer have access to your messages, contacts, etc. 


1- Open an email account somewhere (such as Gmail) as soon as possbile.  Notify your contacts to use that email address.  (you can always give them a different one later if you choose to)


2-  Go into Smartzone, click on Preferences, then on the Address book.  Export your Address Book Contacts & save the file somewhere where you can locate it easily.  Later you can import the csv file into your new ISP email program, or import it into Gmail,etc.


3- If you may need your old saved messages, now would be the time to move them elsewhere as well.


4-  If you also use an email client, move everything there that you might want to keep as well.


Note:  When you close your account it could be immediately, a few days, or a month before you no longer have access to Smartzone.  ASSUME you will not have access immediately and take the steps outlined in advance.

Re: how to keep comcast email after move

Once you cancel service with Comcast you will NOT have access.  Please re-read my previous post concerning that part.  Assume as soon as you cancel services your comcast email address will also NOT be unavailable to you.
