    A simple question. I have a email address I used for 10 years from my Internet provider. I used that to register at all sites all over the Internet. The case now is that they have been bought up from another company, and the email address will no longer be valid after a specific date this month.

    Will this have any impact of my log-ins f.ex at Soundcloud, Facebook, Twitter etc etc etc? I hope not, since it will cause a lot of work. I am sure I can edit/change the email address on my account in all those sites, but anyway, it`s frustrating if I suddenly cant login at all the cyber world!!!:nutkick:

    I don`t know if this is the right section to put this.

    it won't affect the login, but it would be a good idea to change your email address tied to those accounts, at least the important ones, because if you will be "forced" to reset your password for example (in case of hacking, you simply forget your password), it will be sent to the registered address and if you can't access that address anymore, you're pretty much fucked

    What HoNeYBiRD said.

    You mentioned that your current email will be shutdown for good at a later day this month. That means you have15 days (probably less) to change all related accounts to a new email. I'd suggest you start to do that ASAP. Also, if you have pop3/imap access to that account, make sure you use a program to download and backup all of your emails. You never know what contacts, info or anything important you'll be needing at a later date.

    Change the email address to the new one. That is the better idea to work with. Change the ones that you use all the time. Also see if the old email address can be rerouted to your new one for sometime, if possible you can inform others too of the change. Send mails to all your contacts that your old address is changing and asking to update it with your new one.
    Hope it helps.
