When Spectrum takes over what happens to my RR e-mail accounts?

Will I get new e-mail accounts, and the old ones get deleted? 

Will I keep my e-mail accounts, but they are renamed, or not renamed?

Will there be much better filtering for misdirected e-mail spam?

(It seems RR had their e-mail lists compromised a decade ago and I've been getting mass spam to my account for no reason from many countries in many languages. Certainly not a secure place to do e-mail, at all!)

It would all depend on what domains were included in the sale.

 

I am certain that they will eventually come up with something hybrid, such as your username remains the same, but the server / domain for your email address becomes user@spectrum.net or user@hvc.spectrum.net or something similar...

 

We just have to wait and see.  I am ceratin we will be provided with ample warning when the plans are finalized.

  I have used Outlook as part of MS Office installed on my PC for many years. Have had the same email address since 1989. Hope they don't kill it.

Sorry, that should have been since 1998, not 1989.
