    Hello,
    Currently my email address is with my current ISP BT
    I intend to transfer my email address to a company seprate to my ISP so if change ISP again i dont need to worry about my emails.
    I have had my current email address since i first got the internet so i intend to use a switching service such as trueswitch. I have found out that a company called trueswitch provides a service which transfers all emails,contacts (including sending all contacts an email),msn (windows live messenger) etc from the old provider to the new and provides a redirect service for awhile. does anyone know of anyother companies that provide this sort of service?

    Im looking for personal reccomendations for a Paid professional email provider.

    thanks in advance

    Lodore,
    'I intend to transfer my email address to a company seprate to my ISP so if change ISP again i dont need to worry about my emails.'

    Keep in mind that some forums etc. deem you to be a less than stellar individual if you don't use a 'real' pay for play email address, such as your isp.
    Hence you will not be able to win certain of the more desireable prizes or services.

    I got sick of changing email address every time I changed ISP.
    Notifying all contacts of change, altering business cards, etc.
    Finally bit the bullet and got my own domain. <$10 / yr.
    Email hosting (w/ 10GB storage) for $14 / yr.
    Unlimited aliases and "permanent" addresses for total <$24 / yr is the way to go IMHO.

    I'll second what Bob D. said.

    Purchase your own domain for less than $10.00 per year and find a place to host your mail.

    I realize you said you were looking for a paid email provider, but Google Apps is a really fine option and the standard version is free with more than 7GB of storage.

    There are other paid providers such as Fastmail, Runbox, tuffmail, Eumx.net, and I believe they all allow you to host your own domain there for a price.

    Highly recommend Fastmail and Eumx.net. Excellent providers.

    Good luck....................

    Agreed. I subscribe to both. EuMX is hosting my domain email.

    is the 10gb per year from EuMX?
    for that sort of pricing most companies seem to offer 1GB.

    I managed to get the domain I wanted for £2.99 a year and email for £0.69 per month which includes 5 2gb mailboxes.

    Great. If I may ask, which email domain host did you chose?
