JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - Some GCI customers will have to get new email addresses.

KTOO reports (https://is.gd/M2F1X9) those affected have emails that end in the domain “alaska.com.” About 3,000 people will need to change their addresses by the end of the year.

The domain came about years ago through an agreement with the Anchorage Daily News and GCI to cover all things Alaska. But the project never came to fruition, and GCI began issuing email addresses with the domain.

But now that the McClatchy Co. has sold the newspaper, GCI no longer has rights to use the email addresses.

GCI spokesman David Morris encourages people to get new addresses as soon as possible and not wait until Dec. 31.
