Hello all

In case you'd missed it, we wanted to flag that EE plan to shut down lots of email addresses on the 31st May 2017. You can read more about it here.

The addresses affected by the closure are:
Orange.net
Orangehome.co.uk
Wanadoo.co.uk
Freeserve.co.uk
Fsbusiness.co.uk
Fslife.co.uk
Fsmail.net
Fsworld.co.uk
Fsnet.co.uk
If you registered with Mumsnet under any of these accounts, you won't be able to get into your Mumsnet account after that date. We know it's a bit of a faff and we're sorry to have to ask, but please go straight to 'My Mumsnet' and click on your account details page. There you can change your registration details, including your email address. Don't forget to save!

If you're on the Mumsnet Insight panel you'll be getting an email shortly asking you to update your email address - but if you read this first please do drop a mail directly to insight@mumsnet.com with your previous and new email address.

Thank everyone. flowers

Orange have been communicating this to its users since Feb 2017. Lots of helpful advice on their site. (unusual but true!)

Wow! I didn't even know that freeserve was still out and about in any form, whatsoever!

Ah, the good old days of dodgy dial up!

Freeserve and Wanadoo are definitely a blast from the past!

I had a Freeserve account back in the late 1990s - happy days!

Aww Freeserve! 'can I use the Internet?' 'No. I'm on the phone.' grin

I'm gutted to lose my Freeserve address sad It was my second ever after I ditched AOL.

I have had mine for 20 years. My life is on there. It's astonishing how many contacts and log ins I have had to update. Not quite there yet, but MN is done.

Farewell Freeserve, I will miss you.
