    Changing ISP. Questions about email?

    For the past ten years I have been a consistent AT&T customer for DSL, Home Phone, and Moble Phone services. Unfortunately AT&T has been constantly out in my area for more than a month and work needs have forced me to change to Comcast. My family and I run both are personal and business emails out of "@bellsouth.net" accounts (which work when logged in from "yahoo.com" and changing emails is not an option (at all). Ihave already signed up for Comcast, but as of today my AT&T service has not yet been canceled. The question is will we (with absolute certantiy) retain accsess to our "@bellsouth.net" email adresses even after we cancel AT&T ISP service (but not either phone)?

    Sorry Pal.... once you canceled your ATT account.  Your email with them will be gone too.

     

    A trick one of my friend did, changed the service to a cheap dial up access.  Just to keep the email address.  Basically, he just 'rent' his original email account for like $10/month...  for like a few years before he officially closes it
