Want to change my primary email/user name
« on: January 07, 2018, 01:58:17 AM »

I need some advice before attempting this. Have been using Avast Internet Security on my primary home computer, as well as our two laptops for a number of years. Given that we will likely change our ISP in the next month or so, I need to change to another user ID. The user ID is based on my current ISP that probably will be dropped when fiber comes to our area. My proposed new ID is on Gmail.

The "new" user ID that I wish to use is currently linked to a "free" AVAST! account. I would like to link this computer and the other laptops to this other email. If I do that, will I lose my subscription to AVAST! for software and virus signature updates? I have a third laptop I just installed free AVAST! on; I would like to upgrade it to at least Internet Security or may go to the Premier version given its newer features.

Inspite of reading this, I'm not shure, if I'm right in this section. In the past, there was a lot of trouble concerning my mail provider (see screenshot) and private, too.
That mail provider rolled back to unsafe ports (25 + 110!) and inspite of several mails to their support, they didn't want to change anything! It concerns my old account 'HDW38', which I want back. But in case of frustration, I deleted that account and registered new as '=Snake='.
The posts you see there, I want to add into 'HDW38' account, so you can take the mail address of '=Snake=' for 'HDW38' by deleting the '=Snake=' account.
