Dorothy asked, "What do you do when you have changed
providers, and the search engines for email, such as infospace, still
have the old one."

I'd suggest that you register your current e-mail address with one of
the directory services, like Bigfoot or 411. Some search engines like
yahoo, which runs on 411 have a feature where you can enter the old
address and get a new one, I believe. Bigfoot also has a forwarding
feature >from an old address, but I'm not sure if that works when you
have ceased buying an address >from a commercial service, as my e-mail
is on a university computer and I also have a free web-page address,
neither of which expired.
