I just checked with MTS chat, apparently they are keeping the MyMTS.net domain, as well as any existing @mts.net aliases, but it will no longer be managed or integrated with Microsoft services. FAQs are coming soon.
If you are concerned about email changing get a domain abc.ca for about $12CDN/year and do it through a service that let's you forward mail like baremetal.com. There are others. Then use the [email protected] and forward to ,,,,telus ,,,mts ,,, whatever your current email address is. Never have to worry about switching from mts, shaw, .....
No matter what email route is free....you can bet the parties involved(google microsoft, etc.) will find a way to irritate me in the future with ads, data mining, following everything I do. That's why.
Google provided voice and then cut a bunch of voip suppliers etc. from using the service because their ads weren't in our faces.
Besides which I'm patriotic and like to have a .ca domain and email address.
Paying for the domain, not the email etc.
Well something has changed. Until a couple of weeks ago it was a very rare occurrence for junk mail to show up in my Outlook. Previously I would periodically check my e-mail account via live.com, which was the backbone system to the MTS email, for valid items caught in the junk file.
Now I am getting 1 or 2 junk items a day in Outlook and live.com shows no activity whatsoever. Previously it would capture multiple junk items daily.
Guess I will call MTS and see what they have to say.
So what happens to my Xbox live account?...Im pretty sure you have to have a live or hotmail account to use the online...and since its not gonna be windows email account any more they might screw up my stuff...this is an odd situation...
