Yes, I need that book.
It isn’t difficult to open and close an email account.
It does become difficult when the email account you are closing is attached to so many different accounts, especially a Google account. Delete one email address and you no longer have access to Google Reader, or any other valued Google feature. A person thinks they have thought everything through oh so carefully until they hit the big red delete button!
Note: attaching an alternate non-Gmail email address to your Google account is a good thing, however, you first need to create a non-Gmail email account as a 2nd alternate if you intend on deleting the first one.
Today, I felt like I worked through a maze after I deleted my personal email from one account. I was having major withdrawal over not having my normal sources at my fingertips. It felt like I was working the back side of a puzzle as I carefully plotted and planned. I did temporarily find a fix. I am such a nerd, but I think we all have to be up to date with our electronics and internet accounts, otherwise we would not have access at all.
So, why am I writing about this? Spouting off, wanting to hear your spouts in return! Have you made such a change before and found it to be much more difficult than was necessary?
Last but not least, if you are interested in partnering with me in writing the Changing Email Addresses for Dummies book we probably could make bundles.
Humor, again, a valuable thing! We need to hang onto it, by our fingernails!
