Org Domain Email services Currently Suspended

Post by Kireblue » Thu Aug 04, 2022 4:23 pm

Attention:The Org domain email addresses that were provided to users in 2006 have been deactivated due to a recent decision by Google to suspend all free Google Workspace Accounts. We are currently contacting Google in hopes of getting the accounts reactivated. Thank you for your patience.

More info on Google's decision can be found here

Is it worth saving?
I'm one of the very few people in my peer group who knew it existed. I can't imagine many people were actually using it...

Not many, but for those who have been using it, it's been an email address that they've relied on for over 15 years. Having it suddenly deactivated can be a big problem

Well, This would explain some things. Thanks for looking into it - I had thought google had reversed course when they said they were going to do this about a year ago.

I'm definitely in that boat, having been using the a-m-v.org (free) email as my primary since I first joined. I have important emails and contacts I've saved over the years I need to access. Hopefully, at the very least, Google can give us temporary access so we can download/backup those files.

I know I've been out of the game for a long time, and hardly ever checked back with the site/forum since then .... but it would have been nice if we at least got some kind of heads-up about this email suspension (via email) so folks like me could have prepared and backed up everything.

Also in that boat. If I had received some kind of notice, I could have backed up files, contacts, and important emails. There is a lot of stuff that I need to recover.
