I’m starting to get reports of a new email being sent out to former customers of ISN about their @isn.net email:
You recently received communication from EastLink regarding changes to your ISN email address, and/or sub domain address.
Based on customer feedback, we now realize that the notice period was not well considered and we have extended the transition period for email conversion untilDecember 31st, 2008. We trust this will allow for sufficient time to update your contact lists and advise business customers, family and friends of this change.
There are many benefits to changing to the EastLink domain as the EastLink email platform provides a back-up platform and offers a more robust spam and virus filter service.
Although we are maintaining the ISN email domains until December, you can set-up your new EastLink email at anytime and send and receive emails from both your ISN and EastLink address.
We apologize for any inconvenience we have caused and please know we value your business.
Kudos to Eastlink for listening to their new customers. This is a good sign. If you’ve got an @isn.net address, I recommend that, even if you switch it over to an @eastlink.ca address, you still get your own domain for your email and forward it to your new Eastlink address. That way when Eastlink gets purchased by Comcast (or whoever), you won’t have to go through this all again.
