Re: Will I need to change my address if I change internet provider?

Some people object to using GMail because it collects information about your interests and preferences to present tailored advertising to you.  If I  was concerned about that, I’d use some sort of service that encrypts e-mail between you and the user.  I believe there are services that do this and present clear copies to your recipients, though they are encryped during transmission.  But e-mail isn’t private unless encrypted.
 
While I don’t think tech companies should be allowed to collect all sorts of information about people, I use GMail.  I don’t care if Google knows I read The New York Times, like The Beatles, and other preferencess it can tell from looking for certain words in my messages.
 
GMail works well, is free, and I can use it no matter how I access the Internet.

Hi all,

The answer to your question is yes.  You will need to change your email
address, or should I say it will be changed for you.  The way to
prevent this is to get your own domain.
