Closure of fsmail (and others from Orange/EE) [solved]
« on: May 02, 2017, 08:30:10 pm »
Has anyone got any recommendations for another, preferably free, account provider?

We have two fsmail.net accounts going back years, hence a lot of messages/folders to transfer. Transferring them to gmail seems to be fairly straightforward, but I simply don't want to be involved with google and it's quest to know everything about everybody on the planet. I don't even use it's search engine.

So what I need is a new, non-google account into which I can import messages from fsmail, but I can't seem to find one. Yahoo would be ok, except it imports from only a limited number of other providers, excluding fsmail.

It doesn't have to be free. I'm wondering about buying a domain name and using it's email facilities without creating a website. Trouble is, I'd still have the problem of importing a multitude of old messages, contacts etc.

Sorted. Outlook.com has imported all my emails and folders without fuss.

Anyone trying this should be aware that you need to use imap, not pop.
