IMPORTANT: Excite.com Email Has Shut Down

Are you now able to sign into your excite.com email account, or couldn’t you add it to Outlook or pull emails from it? Well, you may be disheartened to know that after years of providing inexplicable services, Excite com email has discontinued its operations since September 1, 2021.

So, if you are looking to do the www.excite.com login for your old email account, but couldn’t access it, even after following the steps given above, then it is only because Excite Mail services are no longer in operation.

Moreover, after the discontinuation of services, you won’t get access to your previous data, unless you have already subscribed to a premium Bluetiehome.com email account before December 31, 2021. But, if you didn’t subscribe, all account data, including emails, email history, contact information, and so on, has been wiped from Excite Email databases and is no longer accessible. Also, emails sent to your Excite email addresses will not be delivered.

However, these days, there are a lot of new email services with cutting-edge technologies that you can use for your day-to-day communications, whether personal or professional. Some of the most prevalent of them are Gmail, Outlook, etc.

Will You be able to Access your Data in your Old Excite Mail Account?

Yes, you can still access the data stored in your old Excite email account. 

However, if you have directly requested Excite Mail to deactivate your account or your account has previously been reported for inactivity for an extended period of time, then you cannot get access to your data. 

Excite email provider preserves email data for active Excite email accounts for a certain period of time to provide users data who wish to subscribe to the BlueTieHome premium email service after the excite.com email shutdown period (September 1, 2021) has passed. 

So, if you want to switch your Excite.com email account to bluetiehome premium email to get hold of your previously stored email data, you can do so by going to the moreinfo.bluetiehome.com page.

Further, if you already switched to bluetiehome premium email, you will still continue to receive emails from your excite.com email addresses until the end of this year, 2023.  

With that said, this guide on Excite Email ends here! Hope it was helpful in clearing things out for you in terms of accessing your account, and why you couldn’t access it any longer.
