I just got an email to one of my secondary email accounts advertising EasyChange software which supposedly will switch all my email accounts to use my Comcast account. Anyone know anything about this?
I got this from comcast today
If you're not using your Comcast.net email address, firstname.lastname@example.org, for all of your email communications, it's time you started. One big advantage is that you can transition smoothly to your Comcast Webmail account using EasyChange, powered by Trueswitch.
Concerned about disruptions or losing a precious contact? No worries - we'll automatically notify your contacts about your switch. Your stored emails and address book will get transferred, too.
Why in the world would ANYONE want to use this????????
It looks like the "AOL Simpleton mentality" at work here, and it more or less locks you into having a comcast email address, making it more difficult to switch ISP's in the future.
It makes more sense to have a none ISP account that one can forward all other email address to. Then WHEN you switch ISP's (and you will) just switch the forwarded address to your steady email address. I have had the same email address from 7 years now, and have had at least 10 different ISP's over that time. No one ever could tell my ISP changed because all I had to do was change my new ISP email to forward to my steady email address. There are several ways one can hold onto a email address and keep it Independent of your ISP.
