Can't create an e-mail address

Go to solution

i just joined bt broadband yesterday (infinity 2) , i was with talk talk , so my talktalk e-mail address will no longer work when infinity 2 gets activated in two weeks time , so i need a btinternet e-mail address so that i can change all my e-mails over.

 

iv'e logged into my bt but i have no option anywhere to create an e-mail , i was told the option to create one was in "set up my extras" but i dont see any internet/email options there . i have looked all throughout the my bt options but i cant find how to create an e-mail address anywhere!

 

i have also clicked email next to my bt and it says..... "There isn't a BT Yahoo! Mail service associated with the username/email address you've entered"

 

i just want a btinternet e-mail address 🙂

 

thankyou

I don't think you can create an email address until everything with the order is complete.

so does that mean i wont be able to create an e-mail address until the infinity 2 has been activated? 

 

i wanted to create a btinternet e-mail now so that i can start to swap my mail away from my old talktalk email address, ready for when infinity 2 is activated 😞

If I were you, I wouldn't bother with having an @btinternet.com email  address. It is much better to have a non-isp address such as Gmail or Hotmail (or your own domain) then you don't have to change it every time you change ISP.

As you have already been informed, until your order is completed and your line is activated you will not be able to make any BT email address or see all the items that will be in your MyBT. Even when it is activated it can take a couple of days for MyBT to populate fully.

Yeah. If someone can tell me why a BT email address is better than a Gmail or Outlook.com email address I'd love to hear it!
