Our business has had the same @sbcglobal.net email for the last 15+ years. I started off using Microsoft Outlook until I kept running into the 4GB limit. I then switched us over to Thunderbird which I have been using the last 5 years. Thunderbird (I am guessing like every other Pop3 client) gets gunked up after awhile and I have to rename the inbox folder and start new about every 2 months (we get a lot of email everyday with many attachments). So I then recently switched to Mailbird and it has many more problems. So I am wondering what my options are at this point as I don't want to change email address. I wish I could go to a service like Rackspace and just use their webmail but cannot due to the domain. If anyone could suggest what my options are at this point I would appreciate it. Thank you.
After thinking about it... I am guessing that I will have to go with someone such as rackspace and use my website domain. I am thinking that maybe for a month or so I can have sbc forward my existing email to the new until all of my customers have the new email address plugged in. I am thinking that's my only option. Does that sound about right? Sorry if my questions seem a bit dumb as I have been in IT for the last 25 years but have never studied email things outside of the protocols such as POP3, SMTP etc.
