How to Change Alice

You have just found a job posting you are interested in and would like to submit your application. Before you do that, though, you want to know how to change your alice email address, since what you currently have is nothing short of "embarrassing". Well, I'm sorry to tell you so coldly, but doing something like this is almost impossible: for obvious reasons, in fact, it is not possible to change an existing email address. The only thing you can do is delete the one you currently have and create a new one.

Doing this operation, however, can have some disadvantages: the first concerns the loss of messages and contacts (easily solved by creating a backup of the latter), the second concerns the impossibility of creating an address with the suffix @ alice.it. If you want to proceed, in fact, you will have to "settle" for having an address with a suffix @ tim.it, as Alice email addresses are no longer released.

So, are you still willing to continue? Very well! Make yourself comfortable, take all the time you need to concentrate on reading the next paragraphs and, more importantly, try to implement the "tips" that I will give you. I am convinced that, by following my instructions carefully and scrupulously, you will not have the slightest problem in completing your "business". I wish you happy reading!

Delete an Alice Email Address

As I told you in the introduction of the article, the only possible way to change Alice's email address is to delete your current email account and then create a new one, using a new username. So let me explain how to save your data and how to delete an existing Alice email address.

Create a Backup of Your Emails and Contacts

Before explaining how to delete the Alice account you want to replace with a new one, I suggest you create a backup of emails and contacts, so that you can access it even after deleting the e-mail address in question. To create a backup of the messages sent and received via the email address you want to delete, all you have to do is use a traditional email client, such as Outlook, Mozilla ThunderbirdApple Mail o Windows 10 Mail, so as to download all data locally.

If you have not yet set up your Alice account on an email client, know that this is a rather simple operation to complete. What you have to do is press on the appropriate item relating toadding a new account and use parameters POP / IMAP that you find on the TIM website to configure the account correctly. Then you can save the e-mails regarding your Alice mailbox using the appropriate function available in the client in use.

If you want to have an exhaustive explanation of all the steps you need to take, I suggest you take a look at the in-depth information in which I explain in detail how to configure the Alice email account in the client and how to save email messages locally.

As for saving contacts, on the other hand, connected to Alice's login page, log in to your account and, once logged in, press the button DIRECTORY located at the top of the page (center). Then put the check mark next to the box Visualized name, so as to select all saved contacts in one click, hover the cursor over the menu Set / Export ▾ and select the item Export with .csv file to export contacts in CSV.

And if you need clarification on how to open CSV files, read the guide that I linked to you: there you will find information that could be useful to you.

Delete the Account

After making a backup of your data, you can finally proceed with theAlice account deletion that you no longer want to use. To do this, all you have to do is connect to the appropriate cancellation page, provide the login credentials of the account you want to delete and then follow the simple wizard that is proposed to you on the screen. The steps to take are the same whether you are working from your computer or smartphone or tablet.

First, then connect to this page of the TIM website and fill in the text fields Please enter your email address e Enter your password indicating the login credentials of the account you want to delete. Once this is done, press the blue button PROCEED to go to the next step.

At this point you will be shown the last four digits of the mobile phone you connected to your email account during registration: press the button NEXT to receive the verification code on your mobile number. Within seconds, you should receive a code consisting of seven letters: enter it in the appropriate text field and press the button once again forward.

You should now see a confirmation message on the screen that will indicate that the operation was successful. Following your request, a message will be sent to your Alice mailbox containing a link that you will have to click within 15 days from the date you made the cancellation request to confirm that you want to delete your account.

Once you have clicked on the link in question, you will no longer be able to access and use the email address you have designated for deletion. Within 30 days, TIM's technical staff will fulfill your request by permanently deleting the account.

Create a New Alice Email Address

After deleting the "old" email address, you can finally create a new Alice email address. I already tell you that the operation in question can only be done from a computer: if you really want to act as a smartphone and tablet (which I do not recommend you do, for a matter of convenience), you will have to enable the display of the TIM desktop site.

If you have a fixed telephony subscription with TIM, after connecting to this page press the button REGISTER located under the column Do you have ADSL or TIM Fiber? (clearly, you must be connected to your TIM line). Fill in the form you see on the screen, indicating with all your personal data: namelast nametelephone numberrecovery mobile number, then choose theusername and password to be used to access your account, put the check mark on the boxes regarding the acceptance of conditions and terms of use of the service and presses the button REGISTER per ultimare l'operazione.

If you have a TIM SIM available, on the other hand, after connecting to the registration page that I linked to you previously, press the button REGISTER placed under the column Do you have a TIM mobile phone?. On the page that opens, fill out the form you see on the screen indicating your mobile TIM in the appropriate text field, the recovery mobile number, accept the conditions of use of the service putting the check mark on the appropriate boxes, presses the button REGISTER and follow the instructions that appear on the screen to complete the registration procedure.

If you are not a TIM customer, however, you can create an email address by pressing the button REGISTER located in the box Don't have TIM yet?. Then, also in this case, fill in the form that is shown on the screen indicating yours personal data (name, last name, etc.) e l’username and password you want to use to log into your account.

Then provide the recovery mobile number, put the check mark next to the boxes relating to the acceptance of conditions of use of the service, type il codice CAPTCHA in the appropriate text field and presses the button REGISTER to complete the creation of your account.
