Email Question

I have moved and my old email account (POP 3) is inactive. My new account is an IMAP. I would like to remove the old account but the contact information appears in a folder on it in the same area as in, sent, etc. If I delete this account will i also delete this information? How to move it or save it?

There comment is that they only provide support for their online account and that use of third party...i.e outlook.... is not supported by them.

really cannot help since you provided absolutely no info to work with. Who is your old email provider? who is your new email provider? how were you getting your email with the old and new service? were you downloading or reading them online? if you were downloading, what email client are you using?

in general, if you were downloading and using an email client, your contact list will not be affected if you change email addresses.

Thanks for the effort. Computer was damaged when moving so at least for now not an issue.
