Switch over from NTL to BT

I am switching my phone line from NTL to BT.
Do I have to change anything to access my e-mails which are with the NTL currently.

Also, can I use the same dialup tel no from BT line to access the internet & e-mails?

To access your emails you will have to setup the account something like pop.ntl.com and smtp.bt.com (but it maybe the other way around - sorry) There is also the risk that BT may not let you access the NTL servers.

As to the telephone number - if NTL are letting you keep your number (as they are supposed to do but there have been problems in the past due to some of their exchanges having out-dated equipment which prevented number portability) then there should be no problem.
