Excite.com email ending August 31

I've used them for probably 15 or 20 years now. They say I can migrate to their host's email service Bluetie for a small annual fee, which I don't mind, but my email address will change. Change to what? As in instead of [email protected] what would my new address be? What happens if someone sends a message to my old address after Aug 31st?

It was one of the first web portals and then became one of the first search engines. Looks like they also provided email service.

I hope Bluetie will honor Excite users to keep the @excite.com domain. I have used Excite since they started way back in the 90s, and I will like to keep my @excite email if possible.

No they won't. That's my gripe. Will have to change the email address at dozens of places I use this Email for and notify dozens of people of a new email address. What happens to places and people I forgot about or haven't communicated with in years if they try to reach me in the future? Who knows.

That's a shame.

I guess it's really goodbye then.

Itís all about money, they want to charge you to switch @bluetie.com just to keep the username?

No, I donít think I will.

I think the excite.co.Uk site was one of my very first email accounts - shame to see it going.
