It’s true, Sparklight (formerly Cableone) is planning to discontinue their email service by the end of 2021. But don’t panic, we have 3 easy steps to migrate you to a new email service.
So what now? It may seem like an overwhelming task, to move from one email platform to another. But, there is still time to adjust to this change and get switched over to a new email provider. Lucky for you, TekStop computer repair services include assistance migrating email providers.
Here are some simple steps to avoid big headaches down the road.
3 Simple Steps
- Create an account with a new email provider. For personal email, we recommend providers such as Gmail or Outlook.com. But, like most things in tech, there are many other options available to you.
- If you currently use Cableone email for your business, now is a good time to change to a branded business email. Increase professionalism and security with Microsoft Exchange. We can migrate your existing emails to the new platform and have you up and running in no time.
- Create a list of bills and bank accounts. Any important accounts you access online should be included in this list. You will need to log in to each account and update your email address on file.
- Tell Your Friends. Let your friends and family know about your new email address. You can even setup an out-of-office reply to automatically notify senders of your new email address when they send an email to your Cableone address.
Cableone has stated they are giving advanced notice to individuals before their email account is deactivated. But these steps may take longer than you expected. We recommend migrating off Cableone email sooner than later, before life catches up to you and you lose track of the time!
