Giveaway – Tell us your old, funny email address

Now that you can get an email account with myMail, people are letting their friends know about their new @my.com email address. Do you remember your first email address? Most of us created our first email account when we were in middle school. We bet there were some pretty funny account names. Just for fun, we want to hear them!

We’ll give away some My.com swag – messenger bags and some t-shirts – to those names chosen as the funniest. We’ll choose the ones that made us laugh the hardest and the ones that you vote as the funniest.

Here’s how it will work:

  1. Send an email to middleschoolemail @ corp.my.com. (You can send your email to us from any working email account – hey, why not use your new @my.com address!) We’ll accept your stories for the next 30 days.In your message tell us the following:- The name of your old ‘funny email account” (example: smartysam101@hotmail.com). We won’t send any email to this ‘funny email account’ – unless this is the email account you are using to send us your entry.

    – The story of how/why you picked that funny account name. We’re looking for funny stories here! Keep your story to about 50 words.

  1. Beginning the week of May 12, we’ll start posting your stories on this blog. We won’t publish the full funny email address (you might still be using it!) your name or your current email address. So using the example above, we’ll just say smartysam101@.We’ll continue to post new stories as they come in until the end of the month. We may need to edit your story to fit the 50 word limit. 
  1. If selected, we’ll email you that your story was selected for voting and will include the blog post link where your story will appear. Share the blog post stories with your friends and tell them to vote for your funny email name; use whatever social network you like to get them to this blog to vote. Voting can be done by naming the funny email account name in the comment section. Voting is important in determining the funniest name however, blog voting is only part of how the funniest name will be chosen.

If your story and name has been selected as one of the funniest, we’ll contact you to get shipping information for your My.com swag. We will also announce on this blog that your funny email account name was chosen as one of the funniest.

So get your stories in. The sooner your story is posted, the more votes you can get.

        Mail.Ru Group has a social network “Мой мир”(“My world/universe”), but I can not register there with *@my.com. It’s uncomfortable and not democratic:)

        • MyKatie

          The best thing to do is to contact My World and ask why you cannot use my.com email address to register. Although Mail.ru is our parent company, at My.com, our products are separate and we do not offer support for their services.

            Ok. Thanks!(I did not know that these products are separate)
