Email forwarding

This is a popular technique for providing "lifetime email addresses". The email provider never re-allocates your email address and forwards all mail addressed to this address to another address (your current address) which you provide. This is commonly provided by universities and colleges for students. The problem with this type of arrangement all hinge aroundrepparttar fact that you don't controlrepparttar 109552 email address. There are things that could happen that would mean you don't receive email from this address; such as: * The email provider changes its policy and decides stoprepparttar 109553 service or charge forrepparttar 109554 service. * The email provider ceases to exists and hence doesn't renew its domain name. * You change your email provider and forget to informrepparttar 109555 other email provider to forward to a new address.
