Based on current deals available vs current ISP costs, I'm moving from BT to Plusnet, but have read that I'll lose my "btinternet.com" email address, or, if I choose to retain it, will need to pay some extortionate amount to have a premium email address or something. I've now got the nause of finding a suitable alternative & updating contacts etc.
Can anyone recommend a free email provider which is compatible with Microsoft Outlook (2016 version)?
I've just tried "Outlook.com" but this seems to be ms-exchange based as opposed to pop/smtp.
Would "gmail" do the job? Not tried it yet as I thought I'd ask learned counsel before setting it up. Thanks.
As an aside, I still have a fully functioning "aol" email address, despite having discontinued service with them years ago. I could just use that in worst case scenario, but it's a bit unreliable at times.
Just for info, & further to my earlier point in email (Re; email closure, seems to be standard policy if you move from BT as ISP; from what I've read, they give you 30 days notice, apparently. The premium email costs £5/month)…
I've just had notification from BT that to retain my email (after my move to PlusNet) will cost me £7.50/month...thankfully gmail address sorted.
