I was on BT Surftime and have just ordered BT Broadband. I think I'm right in thinking that I will not be able to use my old email address once on BB. I would like to continue to receive emails into OE Express - how do I go about finding a new email ISP? I assume I will have to pay for it but having increased my outgoings by purchasing BB I want to keep any extra charges to a minimum. Does anyone have any recommendations please?
If you're staying with the same ISP, you can keep your existing email address. You will be connecting to the same server, albeit on a faster connection. So you should not even need to reconfigure Outlook Express.
Be a little wary when you consult your ISP about retaining your present email address. They may try to sell you a payg package, you do not need it, as you can access your present email address via your new connection.I was on BT/Tiscali Surftime and Tiscali 'help' insisted that I would need another connection via payg, You Don't.
