With Internet providers competing to attract business and offer the best deals possible, people often end up switching companies. When that happens, plenty of things can get left behind with an old e-mail address. The longer you've been with a provider, the more addresses, names and phone numbers you'll have to shift over to your new email. However, there's a way to transfer all of that information to your new email and help keep things organized.
Things You'll Need
- Internet access
- Comcast email account
Log into your Comcast email account.
Open your mailbox and click on the "Address Book" icon. Click the "Export" button situated in the lower right-hand corner of the toolbar that should pop up when you click anything in your mailbox.
Choose the appropriate format from the drop-down menu located on the window that pops up after clicking "Export." Choose "MS Outlook Express" if you don't know which format to choose.
Click the "Export" button and choose a file where you want your addresses to be stored. Make sure that they'll be in a file you're not going to throw away or misplace. Repeat this process for anything else you want to transfer from your mailbox (inbox, sent, etc).
Tips & Warnings
- If you have Comcast SmartZone, there isn't yet a way to export your mailbox. The only way to do it at this point is to forward the mail to your new address.
