Does Sympatico still have dial up only accounts? If so, you could keep that one going for a while and have your new email account pull mail from it. Some, such as Google and Rogers/Yahoo can do this. As soon as you get your new email account set up, configure your "reply to" address to use it, even if replying from the Sympatico account. Also, send the new address to everyone you want exchange email with. When you do that, create a "vCard" with all your new info and attach that to the message, to make it easy for the recipients to add it to their address book.
