Shower of sh1t.

Bounce them to Gmail for talk's sake before you leave and slowly go through the ones that need changing.

You wind up having to change details over time anyway - new bank/credit card, change of address, change of password etc.

My wife hasn't paid any money to Plusnet for her account since we switched from dial up to ADSL, but her email is still going strong.
Sure I pay for our Plusnet ADSL, but there's no link between my account and hers.

I remember in the early days of dial-up internet, people would use ISP-domain email addresses. It was simple. But I've never used them, having initially used hotmail, then yahoo and later gmail.

I still use the ISP email address I got in 1997.
Thankfully when Plusnet bought out Force9, the .f9.co.uk email addresses were still valid.

Same here - I still have the same force9 email address.
