If can be difficult for some. I mean we have been preaching on here for years to dump the Viasat provided email address. People would be that would be too much work. Hello. Do people really expect to have Viasat for the rest of their lives? Never, ever tie an email address to an ISP. You need to have an address that is portable.

The ATT email from my old dial up days still works. I don't use it anymore, but I can still access it.

Always good to keep a junk e-mail address to use if you are signing up for something that you think could get you spammed to death.

I’m in the dark about this. I’m thinking that, in our case, viasat says they are going to “retire the email accounts”, (their words). I assume there is no way for us to continue using that email address. If there is, I’d like to know how to do that. I do have gmail and yahoo accounts active now. The only thing I’m sad about is all my dogs brass and stainless ID tags have the WildBlue email address them. (12 in alll), would like to be able to still use that email for notification.

Setup mail forwarding for now. As long as it is still an active email address those emails will roll to your gmail automatically. However, if/when that address is termed, senders will get an undeliverable message.
