What is TrueSwitch?

TrueSwitch is a service that provides you assistance with switching Internet Service Providers (ISPs) or email accounts.  Many users have felt "trapped" by their existing ISP because they have all their personal information stored in a proprietary application (e.g., AOL, CompuServe, Earthlink, MSN, etc.), their friends all know their email address, or simply because canceling the old account is such a hassle. No more!

TrueSwitch offers you an easy, fast and simple way to switch to your new ISP or email account. TrueSwitch automatically copies your personal data to your new account, notifies your friends with the new email address and forwards any e-mails arriving at their old e-mail addresses.  The five major functional components of TrueSwitch are:

1. Personal Data Copying.  You have the option to request that TrueSwitch copy your personal data (e.g., address book, calendar, stored emails, favorites, etc.) from your old Internet account to your new Internet account.

2. Notify Your Contacts.  You have the option to request that TrueSwitch notify contacts in your address book of (i) the change in email address, and (ii) updated personal contact information (e.g., home address, phone numbers, etc.).

If you select the 'Notify Your Contacts' option, TrueSwitch generates a change of email notification ("Change of Address Notification") and emails it to all the contacts in your address book. If you choose the "Express Switching" option in the Software, all entries in your address book with a valid email address will be sent a Change of Address Notification.  If you prefer not to use this feature, or to choose which contacts to notify, please select the "Custom Switching" option when using the Software.

If you select the 'Update Your Contact Information' option, TrueSwitch generates a message containing your contact information ("Update Contact Information Notification") and emails it to all the contacts in your address book.  Each Update Contact Information Notification also provides the recipient with the information pertaining to that individual from your address book.  The Update Contact Information Notification requests the recipient to update his / her records with your latest information, and also to update / confirm the accuracy of the contact information for the recipient from your address book.

3. Instant Messaging ('IM") Switching.  If you select the 'IM Switching' option, TrueSwitch generates a message containing your old and new IM screen names ("Update IM Notification") and instant messages it to all the screen names in your IM contact list (also referred to as your Buddy List® directory on AOL Instant MessengerT).

4. Email Forwarding.  You have the option to request that TrueSwitch check your old Internet account at your old ISP and forward any new emails to your new Internet account.  This feature will only work while both your old and new Internet accounts remain active and provided that you do not change the password to your old account after initiating a request for email forwarding.

5. Account Cancellation.  You have the option to request that TrueSwitch send you a reminder message to the TrueAssistant Message Center to cancel your old account.  For certain ISPs that support cancellation by email or fax, TrueSwitch can also collect the necessary account information and automatically send an email or fax on your behalf requesting that your old Internet account be cancelled.  Esaya does not guarantee the cancellation of the old account, as ISPs may change their cancellation policies without notice.  You are responsible for canceling your old Internet account to avoid incurring any additional charges.

Additional information on the functional components within TrueSwitch is available at www.trueswitch.com

Technical support for TrueSwitch, as made available by Esaya, is described at www.trueswitch.com/help

To initiate your use of TrueSwitch, you need to click on the "Get Started" or "Download Now" buttons on the Website.  This will install the TrueSwitch Wizard Software that will guide you through the steps to switch your ISP or email account.

How does TrueSwitch work?

The TrueSwitch service is built around two components: the TrueSwitch Wizard (or Software) and an application hosted on our web servers.

The TrueSwitch Wizard is a small software program that you download to your computer. When run, it can detect the Internet accounts installed on your computer. You select which account you wish to switch from, and which one to switch to…the TrueSwitch Wizard will do the rest.

There are two modes of operation that you can select.  "Express Switching" and "Custom Switching".  If you select the "Express Switching" the Software will attempt to:

  • Copy all your personal data (Address Book, Calendar, Favorites, Stored Email) from your old account to your new account.  If you prefer not to use this feature, or to choose which personal data to copy, please select the "Custom Switching" option when using the Software.

  • Notify all your contacts.  TrueSwitch emails a Change of Address Notification to all the contacts in your address book with a valid email address. If you prefer not to use this feature, or to choose which contacts to notify, or wish to customize the "Change of Address Notification", please select the "Custom Switching" option when using the TrueSwitch Wizard.

  • Forward your emails.  TrueSwitch will check your old Internet account at your old ISP and forward any new emails to your new Internet account for a period of 30 days. This feature will only work while both your old and new Internet accounts remain active and provided that you do not change the password to your old account after initiating a request for email forwarding.  If you prefer not to use this feature, please select the "Custom Switching" option when using the Software.

  • Help cancel your old account.  TrueSwitch send you a reminder message to the TrueAssistant Message Center to cancel your old account providing you with the phone number to call, the information that you will need, etc. . (This message will be sent 21 days later if "Forward your emails" is selected.)  For certain ISPs that support cancellation by email or fax, TrueSwitch can also collect the necessary account information and automatically send an email or fax on your behalf requesting that your old Internet account be cancelled. Esaya does not guarantee the cancellation of the old account, as ISPs may change their cancellation policies without notice. You are responsible for canceling your old Internet account to avoid incurring any additional charges.

You can customize the settings for each part of your switching between these accounts by choosing the "Custom Switching" option when running the TrueSwitch Wizard.  The "Custom Switching" option also gives you access to the "Contact Update" feature

The Software communicates with our servers which validate your access to the accounts you have selected and then the switch begins.  Please note that some actions are performed by our servers logging into your old account, retrieving information, logging into your new account and re-entering the information.  This can take several hours.  Please watch for status update messages in the Message Center of TrueAssistant.

 

Will TrueSwitch work with my computer (system requirements)?

TrueSwitch is designed to work with most Personal Computers made in the last five years, and to support the most popular email software and Internet Service Providers.

The basic system requirements are:

  • Operating System: Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Mac OS X with Internet Explorer 8 or higher for Windows and Safari 4 for Mac.

  • Pentium II 233 MHz or higher

  • 64 MB of memory or higher

For best results, the TrueSwitch Wizard is designed to run on the same computer that you use to access your old Internet account and after you have installed the software provided by your new Internet Service Provider. For example, if you are switching from AOL to MSN and you access AOL from both your home computer and your office computer, the recommended sequence is as follows:

  • Install the MSN software on your home computer

  • Download and run the TrueSwitch Wizard on your home computer from www.trueswitch.com/

  • You can then access your new MSN account from both your home and office computers

  • Optionally, once you have received a message via the Message Center confirming that your switch has been completed successfully, you can then uninstall AOL from your computer.

TrueSwitch does not currently support Apple Macintosh or Linux. If you would like to be notified when we have added such support, please complete the feedback form with the operating system type and version number you use.

TrueSwitch does not officially support Netscape or Opera browsers, although you can use these browsers to download and run the TrueSwitch Wizard. TrueSwitch doesn’t support Netscape mail, or Opera mail. If you would like to be notified when we have added such support, please complete the feedback form.

 

Does TrueSwitch support my Internet Service Provider?

TrueSwitch currently supports switching between most major Internet Service Providers (ISPs) including:

  • ISPs with their own email programs (AOL, CompuServe, Earthlink and MSN )
  • ISPs offering web-based email and support for standards-based email clients (AT&T Worldnet, Cablevision (Optimum Online), Juno, NetZero, SBC Yahoo!)
  • Free web-based email (Hotmail and Yahoo!) which don't support standards-based email clients (e.g., Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Outlook Express)
  • ISPs supporting standards-based email clients (most other ISPs)

TrueSwitch supports switching to or from each of the major ISPs shown below.  Not all features are supported by all ISPs (for example, Comcast doesn't offer a calendar function).

  Address Book Copy Calendar Copy Favorites Copy Stored Email Copy Notify Contacts Forward Emails Help Cancel Account IM Switching
AOL X X X X X X X X
AT&T Worldnet X X   X X X X  
Comcast X     X X X X  
CompuServe X X X X X X X X
Earthlink X   X X X X X  
Hotmail X X   X X X    
Juno X     X X X X  
MSN X X X X X X X X
NetZero X     X X X X  
Optimum Online X     X X X X  
Roadrunner X     X X X X  
SBC Yahoo! X X X X X X X X
Yahoo! X X X X X X   X

The following versions of ISPs with their own email program, etc. are supported

AOL Software

Versions 5.0, 6.0, 7.0, 8.0, & 9.0

MSN Software

MSN Explorer 7, 8 & 8.5 & 9.0
(MSN Explorer 9.0 beta supported.  Awaiting production release.)

Earthlink Software

Version 5.0 and Total Access 2003
(Total Access 2004 support planned for Q4 2003)

CompuServe Software

CS 2000 and CS 7.0

If you have more than one PC (e.g., home and work), the best results will be seen when you use TrueSwitch on the PC where you have installed the (e.g., AOL) software.  You can run TrueSwitch from a different PC and still access some TrueSwitch features.  For example, if AOL is installed on your home PC, and you use your work PC to access AOL email via the web, you can still run TrueSwitch on either the home or work PC.  However, any emails stored on the other PC will not be switched to your new account. 

We continue to add support for more Internet Service Providers and email clients: if you would like to be notified when we have added support for a particular ISP or email client, please send us feedback.

 

Which email programs will TrueSwitch work with?

TrueSwitch currently supports switching between most of the popular email programs including:

  • Email programs included with AOL, CompuServe, Earthlink and MSN
  • Web-based email as used by AT&T Worldnet, Cablevision (Optimum Online), Juno, NetZero, SBC Yahoo!
  • Free web-based email from Hotmail and Yahoo!
  • Standards-based email clients including Microsoft Outlook Express Version 5 or higher and Microsoft Outlook 2000 and higher

If you use a different email application, but have Microsoft Outlook Express installed on your computer, you might still be able to use TrueSwitch. TrueSwitch can copy your stored email and address book entries to Outlook Express. You may then be able to import this information to your preferred email application. For example, for instructions on how to do this for Qualcomm's Eudora please see www.eudora.com/techsupport/kb/1507hq.html.

We will continue to add native support for more email applications (e.g., Netscape, Qualcomm’s Eudora).

 

How do I copy my personal information to my new Internet account?

The easiest way is to download and run the TrueSwitch Wizard on the PC that you usually use to access your old Internet account (e.g., your home PC) and select the "Express Switching" option.  The Software will then attempt to copy all your personal data (Address Book, Calendar, Favorites, Stored E-Mail) from your old account to your new account.

Any information stored on your local PC is copied immediately. Information stored on the website of your old Internet Service Provider is copied by TrueSwitch's computers into your new account -- this usually takes less than an hour, but can take up to 24 hours.  Please see the status messages in the Message Center of TrueAssistant for further details.

If you prefer not to copy your personal information, or to choose which personal data to copy, please select the "Custom Switching" option when using the Software.

If you are switching multiple Internet accounts (for example, child accounts on AOL), simply re-run the TrueSwitch Wizard for each such account.

 

How do I notify contacts with my new email address?

The easiest way is to download and run the TrueSwitch Wizard and select the "Express Switching" option. This emails a Change of Address Notification to all the contacts in your address book with a valid email address. If you prefer not to use this feature, or to choose which contacts to notify, or wish to customize the "Change of Address Notification", please select the "Custom Switching" option when using the TrueSwitch Wizard.

In addition, the Express Switching mode includes activating email forwarding for 30 days. So, if a friend or contact writes to you at the old email address, TrueSwitch will forward that email to you at your new email address and you will have the option of telling the sender your new email address.

You can, of course, edit the contents of your address book before running the TrueSwitch Wizard and, if you select the "Custom Switching" option, you can personalize the Change of Address Notification email that will be sent on your behalf. In addition, using the Custom Switching mode, you can also select the Contact Update feature which sends an email to your friends and contacts with all your contact information (address, phone numbers, etc.). Your friends and contacts can then update their records, and send you their own updated contact information.

 

How do I setup email forwarding?

The easiest way is to download and run the TrueSwitch Wizard and select the "Express Switching" option. This will setup email forwarding for a period of 30 days. Please note that you must not cancel your old Internet account, or change your user name and password for this function to work correctly.

If you wish to disable email forwarding, click on the TrueAssistant icon in the system tray.

 

How do I cancel my old Internet account?

The easiest way is to download and run the TrueSwitch Wizard and select the "Express Switching" option. This will send you an email in 21 days with the details of how to cancel your account (phone number to call, information that your old Internet Service Provider will require, etc.) If you are canceling an AOL account, the email will include a form that you can print, sign and fax to AOL requesting cancellation of your account.

If you wish to cancel your account immediately, visit My TrueSwitch from within TrueAssistant. Please note that if you cancel your old account, your old email address may be deactivated and email forwarding will no longer function.

 

What is "Contact Update"?

Contact Update is a feature designed to take the hassle out of keeping your personal or business address books up to date. If selected by using the Custom Switching mode of the TrueSwitch Wizard, you can decide which personal information (home address, home phone, business address, etc.) you wish to share with your contacts. TrueSwitch will then email this information to your contacts so that they can update their address book entry for you. This email also contains the contact information that you have for this person and a request that they review and reply with their own updated contact information that you can use to update your address book entry. In this way, both of you will now have accurate, complete and up-to-date information on each other.

 

Will the TrueSwitch service copy all attachments and downloads I received through my emails from my old ISP to my new account?

Yes.  The current version of the TrueSwitch Wizard will copy all of your locally stored emails.

 

What is a "Site Access Error" that I received in my confirmation email?

This error usually means that the TrueSwitch servers had difficulty accessing your data stored on the website of your old or new ISP. The cause may have been due to either your old or new ISP web-sites being slow or inaccessible at the time the TrueSwitch servers attempted to access your account (the servers automatically keep trying so this error should be rare). Please read the status message and follow the recommended steps to retry the TrueSwitch Wizard or contact Technical Support.

 

What does the "Account Not Initialized" mean in the confirmation email?

Selecting to copy data to an application that you currently have not setup yet at the new ISP will result in the error message "Account Not Initialized". For example, if you are copying calendar events to a new MSN account, you need to initialize your calendar at MSN before TrueSwitch can access your account to copy the events to. To resolve this, please login to your new account and setup the service.

 

How do I download TrueSwitch?

The TrueSwitch Wizard is available for downloading from our website at www.trueswitch.com/download_start.htm. In most cases, the download should start automatically.  Depending on your web browser's security settings, a security window like the one shown below may pop up. Make sure to click "Yes" or installation will be aborted.

If you are using Netscape Navigator, or Mozilla, you will receive a prompt to save the TrueInstall file.  Save the file to the desktop by clicking "Save". Then double-click on the "TrueInstall" icon on the desktop to complete the download of the TrueSwitch Wizard.

 

What if I'm having problems installing TrueSwitch?

If you are having problems downloading TrueSwitch, the Wizard can be downloaded manually from TrueSwitch web site.

If the TrueInstall program won't run, please check that you meet the System Requirements.

  • Operating System: Windows 2000, Windows Home, Windows XP and Windows Vista.
  • Pentium II 133 MHz or higher.
  • 64 MB of Memory or higher.
  • Internet Explorer 5.0 or higher.
  • Connection to the Internet.

If you meet these requirements and are still having problems, please contact our technical support.

 

Should I uninstall AOL (or MSN)?

Do NOT uninstall AOL (or any other software installed by your new Internet Service Provider) until you have received a confirmation message via the TrueAssistant Message Center (accessible by clicking the TrueAssistant icon in the system tray) from TrueSwitch confirming that your switch has been completed successfully.

For best results, the TrueSwitch Wizard is designed to run on the same computer that you use to access your old Internet account and after you have installed the software provided by your new Internet Service Provider. For example, if you are switching from AOL to MSN and you access AOL from both your home computer and your office computer, the recommended sequence is as follows:

  • Install the MSN 9 software on your home computer

  • Download and run the TrueSwitch Wizard on your home computer

  • You can then access your new MSN account from both your home and office computers

  • Optionally, once you have received a message via the TrueAssistant Message Center (accessible by clicking the TrueAssistant icon in the system tray) confirming that your switch has been completed successfully, you can then uninstall AOL from your computer.

You do not need to keep the AOL software on your computer in order to take advantage of email forwarding. However, you will need to keep the AOL account active for 30 days in order to use email forwarding. You may be billed by AOL again during this 30 day period if you choose email forwarding. AOL does offer a $4.95 per month Light Usage Plan which is sufficient for most users of email forwarding.

 

Where do I find my personal data in my new account?

Once you have successfully run the TrueSwitch Wizard, your personal information stored on your computer will have been copied to the new account. If you have additional personal information stored at the website of your old ISP, it can take up to 24 hours for this information to be copied to your new Internet account. You will receive a message via the TrueAssistant Message Center when this information has been copied.

Select the Internet Service Provider that you are switching to (your new Internet account) to get detailed information on how to locate your personal information in the new account.

AOL
CompuServe
Earthlink
MSN
SBC Yahoo!
Other (using Microsoft Outlook Express)

 

Can I keep my Instant Messaging Application?

You can continue to use ICQ®, MSN Messenger, and Yahoo! Messenger programs and existing screen names even if you switch Internet Service Providers.

If you wish to add a new screen name, or change screen names in MSN Messenger, and Yahoo! Messenger, you can use the instant messaging switching feature of TrueSwitch to copy your contact list and send a message containing your old and new screen names to all the screen names in your instant messaging contact list.

If you cancel an AOL® account, then the associated screen names for  the AOL Instant Messenger(tm)  service will no longer be available. You can still access your AOL Instant Messenger(tm) Buddy List® directory by using the free AOL Instant Messenger(tm) client available at http://www.aim.com. You can use the instant messaging switching feature of TrueSwitch to help create a new screen name, copy your Buddy List®  directory and send a message containing your old and new AOL Instant Messenger(tm) screen names to all the screen names in your Buddy List® directory.

The instant messaging switching feature of TrueSwitch can be accessed from the confirmation screen after successfully submitting a request to use the TrueSwitch services to switch from an AOL® account.

 

Can I still use the same chat rooms?

Yes. When you download the free AOL Instant Messenger (tm) client from http://www.aim.com/, you will be able to access some of the chat rooms available on AOL®. There are also hundreds of chat rooms available on MSN and Yahoo!

 

How do I cancel (or downgrade) my old Internet Account?

You are responsible for canceling your old Internet account to avoid incurring any additional charges. If you selected the "Express Install" option with the TrueSwitch Wizard, we will email you in 21 days with the details on how to cancel your account (you need to keep your old account active so that TrueSwitch can continue to forward emails that arrive at your old account). In addition, you can get details on how to cancel your account below.

You should deselect all the options to copy your personal data or notify your contacts, but select "Email Forwarding". Email forwarding will be enabled for an additional 30 days. Please note that you must keep your old Internet account active and not change the user ID or password for email forwarding to work correctly.

 

How do I switch back to my old Internet Account?

You should visit www.trueswitch.com and download the general purpose TrueSwitch Wizard and select your original Internet Account as the account you are switching to. Your personal data, including any emails received while you were using the "new" account will be copied back to your original Internet Account. Similarly, your friends and contacts will be notified of the change back to your old email address and TrueSwitch will forward email received at your "new" account to your "original" account.

The use of the general purpose TrueSwitch Wizard is free if you are switching to one of our partners.  Otherwise there is a fee of $29.95.

 

Does my information stay private?

Yes.  Your information is only used to provide the components of the TrueSwitch services that you request and will be automatically deleted shortly thereafter.

The natures of the TrueSwitch services require that we collect and temporarily use your personal information.  For example, we use your User ID and password to log into your old and new Internet accounts to copy your personal information (e.g., address book, calendar events, stored emails, etc.) and to forward any new emails.  We also send Change of Address Notifications to your friends and contacts which include your new email address, etc.

Full details on the information collected and the conditions under which any such information is shared with third parties (including your old and new ISP, and with contacts listed in your address book, etc.)  is available under "Collected Information" and  "Sharing of Information" in the Privacy Policy.  Any information collected from you is automatically deleted after sixty (60) days and will not be used to contact you to discuss any other products or services that we offer (if you wish such information, please visit our corporate website at www.esaya.com) nor will we sell, share, rent, license or otherwise disclose any of your information to other parties, excepting as described under "Sharing of Information".  Specifically, the Privacy Policy (dated 11/12/03) provides:

"Esaya will not sell, share, rent, license or otherwise disclose any User Data to anyone or any other company, excepting under the circumstances described below, excepting as required by subpoena, search warrant, or other legal process.

(a) As part of the Services, Individual Change of Address Notification and Update Contact Information Notification messages are sent on your behalf to the contacts that you have selected and these will include your old and new email addresses. Similarly, each Update IM Notification sent on your behalf to the contacts that you have selected will include your old and new IM screen names. Additional detail on these messages and their usage of your User Data is included above.

(b) As part of the Services, certain User Data (e.g., your address book entries) is copied to your new ISP account. This is simply the equivalent of you having typed this information into the appropriate webpages on the new ISP website. Please refer to your ISP's privacy policy if you have any concerns.

(c) If your new ISP is sponsoring TrueSwitch, Esaya will disclose your new email address to your new ISP along with the date that you used the Services and the Installation ID of the Software used to submit your request for the Services. For example, if you use TrueSwitch on 1/1/2003 for your account username@isp.com, we would report to your new ISP that username@isp.com used the Services on 1/1/2003, together with the Installation ID of the Software used to submit your request for the Services. We will not disclose any other User Data to your new ISP. Please refer to your ISP's privacy policy if you have any concerns.

Esaya also may share non-personalized, aggregate data with ISP partners who sponsor the Services, advertisers, investors and other selected business partners."

If you have any questions regarding the Privacy Policy or the practices of this Website, these should be directed to Esaya's Security Administrator by emailing such questions to help@esaya.com.

 

Why does TrueSwitch require my User ID and Password?

We require your user ID and password to both your old and new ISPs for security purposes: this ensures that only persons authorized to access your account can copy your personal information etc.  Once we have validated both User IDs and passwords, we then use your User ID and password to log into your old and new Internet accounts to perform the TrueSwitch services that you request including, for example, to copy your personal information (e.g., address book, calendar events, stored emails, etc.) and to forward any new emails.  We also send Change of Address Notifications to your friends and contacts which include your new email address, etc.

We take the privacy of your information very seriously: additional information is available.
