I need to move all my wildblue emails to hotmail. Help!
Are you still able to access both Hotmail and Windblue emails?Are you using a web browser like Internet Explorer to access these 2 emails?Or are you using an email program like MS Outlook 2007/2010?Please let me know so that I can help you further.
Wildblue will trash my files at noon today so must retrieve them before
then. Yes I have access to both via Internet explorer. I hope you are
still there. I just had to get a bit of sleep. Ben
Since Wildblue is an email account from your ISP, I believe you can access the email using a web browser like Internet Explorer like your Hotmail. However, I just want to clarify that when you access the Wildblue email using a web browser, what ever you see in your email accounts are basically stored in the email server itself, NOT in your computer. So when the emails are wiped out from the email server, like by the time that you discontinue your internet subscription with them, you will no longer get your email and you have no email stored in your computer since all are stored in the email server of Wildblue.In order to download a copy of your emails that are still available in the Wildblueemail servers, you need to access and download the emails using an email software using the POP protocol.If you are using Windows Vista or 7, you can download and install Windows Live Mail, it is a free email program for Windows.Here is the donwload link:http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-live/essentials-other-programsAnother free email program that I can recommend to you is Mozilla Thunderbird. Here is the download link:http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/downloadIn order to be able to use any of these email programs, you need to enable POP or POP3 access in your Windblue email account. Please click on this link for detailed information on how to enable POP/POP3 access to your account:http://help.wildblue.net/kb/article/4049After that is done, please proceed to using and configuring the email programs.

It was not your fault, Jess. I needed a followup answer and my question was rejected as being too similar to the first one. It's too late now as this was an emergency for which I got help elsewhere and the case is closed.
If Wildblue is doing this to other customers of theirs, I believe they are
committing blackmail and are vulnerable to a class action lawsuit. They told me they would cancel my account and eliminate all contained data within 24 hours if I didn't accept their web service. I had just contracted with Verizon and I was unwilling to pay cancellation penalties so refused. Thank heavens I got my data moved. Now I just need to notify some 3000 senders of my new email address. All of the
Wildblue messages are in a special file at Hotmail and are ALL selectable but I don't know how to emaill them enmasse.
I am really sorry if the procedures that I gave you did not work out as expected. Anyhow, I am happy now that your problem is resolved and that you were able to pull out the data especially your contacts from the old windblue account.Regarding your intent of mailing a notification to your 3000 contacts regarding your new email address, and perhaps informing them to delete the old email address of yours from their address book and put in your new email address, here are my suggestions and recommendations:
