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.
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.
