An email address that may have seemed witty in college might not be the best for putting at the top of a resume.
Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) January 02, 2012
Mailbox Mover, a web-based email transfer service located in Wheat Ridge, Colorado is holding a contest not everyone might admit to winning. It's for having a poorly decided, unprofessional, embarrassing, or otherwise undesirable email address. Besides a free email transfer, the winner will receive a $100 Amazon.com gift card.
With the new year, many consumers are looking to get a fresh start. Unfortunately email providers generally do not let users change their usernames. An email address that may have seemed witty in college might not be the best for putting at the top of a résumé or sharing with extended family and love interests. Every year millions of new email addresses are created, but opening a new account typically means a user must keep his or her old account active or risk losing old messages.
Mailbox Mover solves this and other problems by transferring (or migrating) email from one provider to another, or even between accounts with the same email provider, for a flat fee.
Mailbox Mover's "Worst Email Address Ever" contest is open to anyone and no purchase is necessary. The winner's story will anonymously be shared on Mailbox Mover's blog. The company announced the contest on its website on January 1 and submissions may be made through the month. The winner will be announced in early February.
