OK, the whole Gmail canceling exchange has me all frazled getting a new email provider and echange/Avtive sync set up. This way if I change email services, my email adress will not change. I have never done this before so I wanted to post up my thought process. 1. Find a good quality Provider 2. Purchase a domain name ($ 4.95/per year) My Name@mydomain.com for 50 Mailboxes on Network Solutions. 3. Use Outlook.com for my active sync / exchange set up no charge? 4.This way I own my name, can change providers if they discontinue services without changing my email address. AM I forgetting anything important? I think outlook.com has virus scanning and spam control. I wish Gmail did not flake out.
