CAN I CHANGE EMAIL ADDRESS A LITTLE?

CAN I CHANGE EMAIL ADDRESS A LITTLE?

I believe someone has gotten one of my email addresses and would like to keep it but can I add a character to it to make it different from what this person may have?

Re: CAN I CHANGE EMAIL ADDRESS A LITTLE?

First, Is the email address your PRIMARY EMAIL ADDRESS?  If it is, changing it will mean the old one will be deleted and no one that has it now ( friends and relatives,etc). will then get a "not our customer" error if they send an email to that old address.

 

You  Could create an email filter in your Preferences to block that person's email.

 

IF you choose to change your Primary username ( email address). Also know that you cannot get it back.

 

 

If if you need further help, post back.
