Being an online married name-change service we are asked questions about every aspect of a name change: from “Can I change my first name, middle name and last name?” to “How do I notify my professional licensing board of my new married name?” —and everything and anything in-between! Helping individuals navigate through the married name change process is exactly what we pride ourselves on doing each and everyday…and we love it!
Recently, we were asked, “If I change my name will I no longer receive my emails?” We want all of you to know the answer to this important question. Of course you will still receive your emails under your old email address unless you close your account. Many employers will set-up a new work email address to reflect your new married name, allowing you to set up an auto-response email to notify your contacts of your new email address (as they contact you via your old email address). You may even be able to do this with your personal email account (using a free platform such as: Yahoo, Google, Hotmail, etc.) if you’re lucky. If not, you will need to set-up a new account under your new married name. Either way, be sure to notify each of your contacts of your new email address to ensure that you don’t miss any incoming emails. If you went ahead and set-up a new account using your new married name, it is recommended that you continue to check the old account (unless it has been closed) until you are certain that ALL your contacts are using your new email address to contact you.
Obtaining a married name change can sometimes be very stressful, but it doesn’t have to be. We at MissNowMrs.com are here to help you with any questions you may have to ensure that you become a Mrs. as smoothly and easily as possible!
