Changing ISP and keeping Windows mail

  WtheM 15:44 12 Mar 2008

Please bear with this as I try to explain.....
I used to have a Tesco acccount with which I used Windows mail.
I now get my internet through a third party, who fortunately uses Tesco also, so all is well! However, my third party is changing his/our ISP to BT.
Is there any way I can continue to use Windows mail as I won't have a BT internet account and mail address?
Hope that's clear!

it should hopefully be a matter of changing server details only unless your mail is @tesco etc otherwise may be ok i think

Yes, it is @tesco etc......!!!!

I've just realised, if BT do a pay as you go, if I registered with that, would that work?

I've got google mail and all the rest, but I much prefer Windows mail.......

If your talking about Windows Live Mail,it doesent matter

No, tullie. Windows mail, used to be known as Outlook !

Windows mail is the Vistaa equivalent of outlook express.

It will work, but you may find like some other ISPs that unless you connect via dialup pay as you go,once every 90 days, that Tescos may stop the account.

Most other ISP. need you to connect via some sort of pay account to continue the service.
