Switching from Virgin

Go to solution

I am very tempted to switch to BT Broadband but the one thing which has prevented me is having to change my @virgin.net email addresses. I have been informed by BT sales that it is possible to switch to BT Broadband and retain my @virgin.net email addresses. I have done some searching but can find nothing to confirm this. My question is two-fold:

 

1. Can I switch to BT Broadband and retain my @virgin.net email addresses?

2. If I can switch and retain my @virgin.net email addresses, how do I access my webmail?

 

Any informed advice would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks.

You'd need to speak to virgin about both points.

Some ISP's don't allow you to keep the email address when you leave. Most do, although they may charge you a small fee per month to keep it.

Your questions have been answered, but it might also be worth considering an email client to send, fetch and store messages on your computer; once set up, many find it more convenient than webmail. Thunderbird is a popular free program and is frequently recommended in these forums.
