@cypnk You can extend that to professional adresses too.

At my library, we often have people complaining that they have not received the reminder for loans that are late, and when we check the email adress, they are “oh no, I don't work there anymore, so that adress has been deleted”…

And why do you complain to us if you did not notice us the change? How are we supposed to guess that?

@arcans @cypnk

what I don't understand is in previous decade some employers might allow you (within reason) to make and receive personal phone calls at your desk; but at the same time you clearly wouldn't expect to keep the same phone number after you have left the job - why would that be any different for email addresses?

@cypnk @arcans

although in this country it isn't free to redirect physical mail (so not everyone does that), and you generally wouldn't expect your former employers to send on parcels from online shops even if you were allowed to send them there..

@vfrmedia @cypnk A few weeks ago, I had an automated reply saying along the lines of “I have decided to change my career path and won't be receiving email at this address anymore. If you want to contact someone from this organization, please reach out to XXX at XXXX. You want to contact me, you can write at XXXX”. I guess that is a solution for a time.
