Re: Changes to email T&C removing unused but paid for accounts.

Thanks gg, that was it! At least I'm still remembering things, even if I can't always remember what they are.Smiley Very Happy

 

I'm still doubtful about the "material disadvantage" caveat, particularly as BT failed to mention a cancellation option in the formal email, as they usually do. Loss of paper billing for BB customers is different in that it's inescapable; loss of a given email account isn't.

Re: Changes to email T&C removing unused but paid for accounts.

I will just login in every few months and send an email to myself at my Gmail account or someone else I know. All my forums have the BT Yahoo mail as the answering email address which are then picked up and forwarded to my Gmail address (presumably that doesn't count as activity?)

Yes that would count. You are effectively logging in and using the account everytime it forwards to your gmail account.

Re: Changes to email T&C removing unused but paid for accounts.

I have an unused sub-account which I'd like to keep because it has a potentially useful username. I've simply added it to Thunderbird set to check all accounts on launch, so routine activity will automatically keep the spare account alive.

Re: Changes to email T&C removing unused but paid for accounts.

Does it matter how I log-in to this account ?
i.e. whether I use @btinternet.com, or @btopenworld.com
or is the one just a 'nickname' of the other, and means the same thing always.
.
Apparently it is only these addresses that are affected by the changes.

Re: Changes to email T&C removing unused but paid for accounts.

I received a phone call from BT this morning to clarify it is NOT @yahoo that is affected.
... Perhaps someone with more posting clout can verify ?

Re: Changes to email T&C removing unused but paid for accounts.

What happens if the primary account is unused, is that deleted?

 

I do not use the primary account so that it does not get out in the wild.

 

You can delete sub accounts and start again if they become compromised but you can't with the primary address.

 

Regards

Re: Changes to email T&C removing unused but paid for accounts.

Thought I would try to change.

 

I have 3 accounts

 

2 are already set to the new email

 

1 (the primary) was set to classic because I never use it.

 

Tried through the options menu to change and this:

 

There was a problem!

At this time, Mail Options is not supported by browsers that have javascript disabled. We are actively looking into this and hope to have it fixed as soon as possible.

 

However, Javascript is enabled, so a load of rubbish.

 

Regards

Re: Changes to email T&C removing unused but paid for accounts.

If you don't use your master email account then set up one of your sub accounts which you do use to check it then you won't need to worry about it going over the 150day period.
