A woman has petitioned the FCC to require Internet companies to forward e-mail to your new address for six months, similar to what the post office does with snail mail.
I'd love to have that. I spend over $20 a month so I can maintain my old e-mail address. I would like to switch to a new one, but it's too much of a hassle. But if things got forwarded it would make it easier. I'd still have to put in manual changes to where my e-mail address is my account name, and update my profiles on some other sites, but this would be a good start.
The petitioner wants the companies to provide this for free, but I'd be happy to pay for it. I'd even pay my full, regular charges for the six months if I could get this.
