To our valued Mid-Hudson Cablevision customers,
Over the last few years advancements in security and technology have made it possible to prevent entities with malicious intent, phishing attempts, spam and malware from disrupting email service. The implementation of cloud storage also provides for a much larger storage capacity, security, and portability. Larger commercial storage companies have been perfecting this technology and have the ability to constantly update with the latest security and technology available to the industry that we are, unfortunately, unable to compete with, due to our email service provided as a free complimentary service. We regretfully are unable to keep up with the advances in a competitive way and as a result we plan to decommission MH Cable email effective September 30th, 2019. We will continue to forward email to your new provider until the end of the year if you request it. We want to advise all users ahead of time that they will need to find another email provider by September 30th, 2019.
Once you establish a new email identity, please remember to let your contacts know of the new email address change and update any outstanding services you use that rely on communicating with you via our email service. Please double check with your contacts and other services to make sure they have the newest/correct email address going forward as part of this transition. Some of the most common places you would need to remember to update are streaming services, online bill pay services, online banking services, any online forums or social media platforms, any utility companies which use your email as a point of contact, medical facilities, governmental facilities, and online shopping locations.
We want to thank you for your continued service with us here at Mid-Hudson Cablevision.
Please contact us if you have any questions and concerns, or call Mid-Hudson Cablevision (518) 943-6600
