Question regarding email addresses - do they still exist?



I am trying to contact someone in the US state of Georgia who has an email address. This is someone I had been planning on emailing since last year but am only getting round to doing it now.


I sent the email last Sunday.


I only discovered afterwards that AT&T bought out alltel earlier this year! I live in the UK so this was news to me.


I am concerned that the email address will no longer be active. I didn't receive a 'not delivered' email so it's possible the person has simply not replied yet, but I just wanted to check here if anyone knows the state of play regarding the status of email addresses.


Any help appreciated.

Hello @Mockmaster,

The email address would not have changed. So provided that the person still uses that email address it should still be valid.

Thanks very much for getting back to me and answering my query.


I guess the person just has not replied yet.
