As discussed in a blog post earlier this week, we’ve now moved FastMail to fastmail.com. This means when you go to https://www.fastmail.fm, you’ll immediately be redirected to https://www.fastmail.com.
Does this affect my existing address or aliases?
Not at all, they will continue to function exactly as before. The only difference is the web address you’ll see in your browser when you log in to our website. This applies to all domains we host, not just @fastmail.fm.
How can I get an @fastmail.com email address?
With the exception of legacy guest and member accounts, you can add an alias (additional address) to your account, or you can rename your account to a new username @fastmail.com right now. Just go to https://www.fastmail.com, login to your account and go to Advanced -> Aliases to add an alias, or Advanced -> Rename account to rename your account.
All addresses are available on a first come, first served basis. We decided on this approach because we already offer many domains, so there might be firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, etc. and we don’t think any particular user and any particular domain should get priority over another.
In the interests of fairness, we are only allowing each account to register one alias @fastmail.com. New users will be able to sign up an address @fastmail.com as well.
Email client users (e.g. Thunderbird, Apple Mail, Outlook, etc)
If you access your email through an email client, there’s no change. Everything will continue to work exactly as before.
