BT has put in ftcc and are offering high speed at very good rates, I dont want to lose my pipex address does anyone know if I can transfer my pipex address to bt. tia

As far as I know, when you leave your current supplier you lose your email account, unless you have a personal one where you can take anywhere you like.

If this interests you look at sites like OnetoOne and HeartInternet.

and understand that you can still receive and view but not send via Pipex.

thank you both.
Halmer, does use of pipex email address viewing have a time limit?

  Halmer 22:23 29 Apr 2010

but I think not.

Thanks, I'll try find out more tomorrow then if so I'm off to bt infinity 20+mb downlooad, 10mb upload.
I think pipex is throttling me anyway so should be a good move.

has halved.

You may still be able to pick up your Pipex email after a move, I can pick up Sky 2 years after leaving, it's all spam though.

Can't Pipex offer you the advantages of FTTC? They use BT infrastructure after all.

When I left Pipex for O2 my Pipex email accounts were suspended within about a week.

No access at all.

They get annoyed when customers leave and this is presumably their payback.

pipex say they will erase my email account within 14 days.
pipex claim I do not live in an area with ftcc, yet bt claim I do and I watched them install it.
the joys of technology.

The joys of watching.
