How to change Alice’s email address: You have just found a job posting that interests you and would like to apply. Before you do that, though, you want to know how to change your alice email address, since what you currently have is nothing short of “embarrassing”. Well, I’m sorry to tell you so coldly, but doing this is almost impossible: for obvious reasons, in fact, it is not possible to change an existing email address. The only thing you can do is delete the one you currently have and create a new one.
Doing this operation, however, can have some disadvantages: the first concerns the loss of messages and contacts (easily solved by creating a backup of the latter), the second concerns the impossibility of creating an address with the suffix @ alice.it. If you want to proceed, in fact, you will have to “be content” with having an address with a suffix @ tim.itas Alice email addresses are no longer released.
So, are you still willing to continue? Very well! Make yourself comfortable, take all the time you need to concentrate on reading the next paragraphs and, more importantly, try to implement the “tips” that I will give you. I am convinced that, by following my instructions carefully and scrupulously, you will not have the slightest problem in completing your “business”. I wish you happy reading!
Delete an Alice email address
As I told you in the introduction of the article, the only possible way to change Alice’s email address is to delete your current email account and then create a new one, using a new username. So let me explain how to save your data and how to delete an existing Alice email address.
Create a backup of your emails and contacts
Before explaining how to delete the Alice account you want to replace with a new one, I recommend you create a backup of emails and contacts, so that you can access it even after deleting the e-mail address in question. To create a backup of the messages sent and received via the email address you want to delete, all you have to do is use a traditional email client, such as Outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Windows 10 Mailso as to download all the data locally.
If you haven’t set up your Alice account on an email client yet, know that this is a fairly simple operation to complete. What you have to do is press on the appropriate item relating toadding a new account and use parameters POP / IMAP that you find on the TIM site to set up the account correctly. Then you can save the e-mails regarding your Alice mailbox using the appropriate function available in the client in use.
If you want to have an exhaustive explanation of all the steps you need to perform, I suggest you take a look at the in-depth information in which I explain in detail how to configure the Alice email account in the client and how to save emails locally.
As for the saving of contacts, however, connected to the login page Alice, access your account and, once logged in, presses the button ADDRESS BOOK located at the top of the page (center). Then put the check mark next to the box Visualized nameso as to select all the saved contacts in a single click, hover the cursor over the menu Set / Export ▾ and select the item Export with .csv file to export contacts in CSV.
Delete the account
After making a backup of your data, you can finally proceed with theAlice account deletion that you no longer want to use. To do this, all you have to do is connect to the appropriate cancellation page, provide the login credentials of the account you want to delete and then follow the simple wizard that is proposed to you on the screen. The steps to take are the same whether you are working from your computer or smartphone or tablet.
First, then, connect to this page of the TIM website and fill in the text fields Please enter your email address And Enter your password indicating the login credentials of the account you want to delete. Once this is done, press the blue button PROCEED to go to the next step.
At this point you will be shown the last four digits of the mobile phone you connected to your email account during registration: press the button FORWARD to receive the verification code on your mobile number. Within seconds, you should receive a code consisting of seven letters: enter it in the appropriate text field and press the button once again Forward.
You should now see a confirmation message on the screen indicating that the operation was successful. Following your request, a message will be sent to your Alice mailbox containing a link that you will have to click within 15 days from the date on which you made the cancellation request to confirm that you want to delete your account.
Once you have clicked on the link in question, you will no longer be able to access and use the e-mail address you have designated for deletion. Within 30 days, TIM’s technical staff will fulfill your request by permanently deleting the account.
Create a new Alice email address
After deleting the “old” email address, you can finally create a new Alice email address. I already tell you that the operation in question can only be done from a computer: if you really want to act as a smartphone and tablet (which I do not recommend, for a matter of convenience), you will have to enable the display of the TIM desktop site.
If you have a TIM SIM available, on the other hand, after connecting to the registration page that I linked to you previously, press the button SIGN IN placed under the column Do you have a TIM mobile phone?. On the page that opens, fill out the form you see on the screen indicating your mobile TIM in the appropriate text field, the recovery mobile numberaccept the conditions of use of the service putting the check mark on the appropriate boxes, presses the button SIGN IN and follow the instructions that appear on the screen to complete the registration procedure.
If you are not a TIM customer, however, you can create an email address by pressing the button SIGN IN located in the box Don’t have TIM yet?. Then, also in this case, fill in the form that is shown on the screen indicating yours personal data (first name, last nameetc.) and theusername and the password you want to use to log into your account.
Then provide the recovery mobile numberput the check mark next to the boxes relating to the acceptance of conditions of use of the servicetype the code CAPTCHA in the appropriate text field and presses the button SIGN IN to complete the creation of your account.
