ChrisZ,

 

I can't access my Directv.net email account since 2/1/19, but the notice I received (and link below) said I would have access until 3/1/2019. The login page says that my account is "suspended."  Help!

 

I need to save my contact list and have important emails that I need to forward to my new email address.

 

Directv customer service has not been helpful or knowledgeable.  They keep referring me to https://support.directv.com/ordering-dtv/wildblue-internet-is-going-away which does not address this problem.

 

Help!

Hi @clanlintz,

 

We apologize for any inconvenience you experienced with your account being incorrectly placed into ‘suspended’ status.  Your account has been updated to allow you to access your email contacts and email data.  Please be advised your email account will still only be available through 3/1/2019, as indicated in the letter you received.
