Omg such bs with my ISP

I cannot believe it. My ISP sucks. They really fucking suck.

I tried to create a second email account, with the ISP I get my broadband from. I have one email address with them, but I cannot remember my password to get in, as its a very old address. I also cant remember the security questions the answers to them I mean. I did set it up years ago, like 12 years ago. So how am I supposed to still remember that info?

I am able to get in to my email account now, but only because the password is saved on my computer. But if I ever have to resubmit the info on a new machine, I wont be able to do it. So I thought, to save time, I’d just sign up for a new account.

How wrong I was! I cant do it! I tried googling th einfo to do it. No joy. I tried ringing tech support, and after a very long wait I got through to some guy who didn’t even know whether it was actually possible to do this or not. He had to go ask a supervisor.

It isn’t possible to set up more than one email addy with this ISP service. He told me go set up a gmail account. Which I would, but that was also proving difficult for me.

I am beyond pissed. Its so annoying. All I wanted was to get a new email address, a simple thing or it should be, right?

wrong!

Anyway, I do have a back up so will use that one for now. I should try to use the same password for everything shouldn’t I? That way I wouldn’t ever be stuck or locked out of places.

I’m trying to transfer all activity over to another account now, and gosh but I have given my email addy out to so many places, including audible, amazon, my phone and electric companies, my company who collects my bins, etc. So so many places to go change it at.

I’ll get there I’m sure. I’m just in a bit of a frazzled mood tonight.

  1. so sorry Carol Anne, I suck at computer stuff so if everything doesn’t work just right I want to bang my head through a wall due to frustration. 🙂 I hope it resolves itself for you without too much heartache.

  2. I have an email address from my ISP (Comcast), But I also have a Gmail account for most of my personal email and an Outlook account that I use exclusively for my blog. Both are free. So go ahead and set up as many email accounts as you want/need. Just bypass your ISP.

  3. Oh dear, email troubles, they are so awful. Maybe you should make a file or something with all the passwords to everything in future, so that you won’t have to remember it all. I do that, you just have to keep it somewhere safe.
