When you move house and send your change of address cards out, you probably only put your new address on the cards and not your old one. And if people want to send you a “Happy New Home” card they’ll need to copy down your new address on to an envelope.
But when people change email address, more often than not, they send out the “Change of email address” email from their old email address. This is true for the last six such emails I have received.
So if you’re changing email address, transfer your contacts list and send your Change of address email from your new account. You never know how many virtual “Happy new home” cards you might be missing.
And please send them individually or use the BCC field. Just in case anyone accidentally hits the “Reply all” button.
