I have been with AOL for decades. They have problems at times, but I WANT to be found by cousins & other relatives as I do genealogy. Yes, they are very old posts, but they are still getting occasional responses that I would not have received if I had changed.
I also have a gmail account, but I never seem to get around to using it.

I have recently become concerned with the practice of using your last name as your email address. Is this a potential security risk?

My first email address was a Work email address 16 years ago, then my current Gmail address 10 years ago. There are a few sites I signed up with, using my Work email address, and I thought I'd successfully changed all to my personal Gmail address before leaving that job 6 years ago.

Just four months ago I found it impossible to use a service which had upgraded its platform, so I had to go through the password reset process, but it didn't recognize my Gmail address. When I finally called in to discuss with Customer Service, I was quite shocked to discover the address they had on file for me. (This service doesn't use the email address as username, so it never mattered for 6 years until I needed to use it for verification).

This one ended okay because the service was a subsidiary of the parent company of my former employer, and I could actually speak to humans.

Having started with sendmail/Unix, then DEC/VAX Mail, DOS BBSs mail, Novell Groupwise, Lotus Notes Mail and then AT&T Worldnet which I still have, though it's been bought and sold several times since the late 80s when I got it. Now Yahoo is Verizon so I doubt they will keep the att.net domain grand fathered being competitors?

Another option that I also have is my own domain and static IP with my own local mail server either on Windows or Linux. The advantages with this setup is I have zero restrictions on account names, attachments, protocols such as (POP, IMAP, http, SSL/TLS and virtually any ports I want) and can easily set restrictions based on country of origin and can forward to virtually anywhere. Also don't have to worry about anything going away or changing and I have no privacy concerns about folks in cloud data centers having access to my e-mail content on their servers. You can even do this setup without any DNS name servers off your domain name and is actually the ultimate way to go if your a techy type and want complete control of your mail domain.
