I recall decades ago when Shaw took over from Rogers we had the opportunity to convert our email prefix naming convention to @Shaw.ca as long as the prefix was available eg. Jdoe@shaw.ca; however, I suspect it's extremely unlikely that in 2023 that your original prefix email address will be available. For a short period of time email was redirected/forwarded to your new email address.
Does anyone have any information what's in the works? Should we be changing our email address to a temporary one and if there are any "best practices" we should be planning on doing to avoid any interruption especially two-factor-authentication?
Solved! Solved! Go to Solution.
I feel either Rogers or Shaw should be sending out email reminders (to the masses) of this situation. However, I suspect it might be in the planning stages or it's way down on their list. I also believe Shaw customers should take this opportunity to consider reducing their dependence on their @Shaw.ca email address.
Then again, it's human nature to wait until the last minute. I can imagine the furor when the time comes and the drama in these forums. I won't be one of them because the moment Rogers notifies me to assign my email address, I'll be on it right away.
The only problem I'll be facing is that I have a few @shaw.ca email address. And except for the main one, I can't recall where I may have used them eg. Flickr or other sites that I don't often visit, but I have an account with. You see, I forward my other non frequently used @shaw.ca email to other email accounts (I have many).
