How to Switch Email Services
Switching from gmail to other platforms is easy
There’s dozens of reasons why you might want to switch to a different email provider. Whether its worries about insecurity (such as with Yahoo these days), Gmail’s disconcerting habit of ‘reading’ every email you type, or just the fact that you plain don’t like the features your current email provides, there’s always a better alternative.
One of the things stopping most people from doing so is that they’re too afraid they’ll be missing out on important emails, or that they’ll lose all their contacts in the process. If that sounds like you, don’t worry. You’re not the only one to find the whole switching email thing a little bit daunting, but there’s good news – it really isn’t that much of an ordeal.
In fact, you can easily switch to a new email account with Gmail, Outlook.com or just about any other service that takes your fancy, without missing any emails sent to your old address. You can even carry on using your old address to send mail if you want, as you’ll find out in this useful guide.
Depending on your old email service and the one you want to switch to, the process of setting everything up will differ. For the purposes of this guide, we’ll stick to the three most popular services around – Gmail, Outlook.com and Yahoo Mail (note that Yahoo is mainly included so I can show you how to leave them, I would definitely not recommend switching to it!)

Not all email platforms are the same some like gmail, some prefer other platforms. It’s your time that’s important and perhaps your money so make sure you put it into a platform you feel is comfortable for you to use
