I have an old btopenworld address from an account set up years ago, which I have kept using through various different broadband providers.
In order to maintain this account, I have just dialled in once every 90 days on a pay as you go basis.
I now have a new BT broadband connection, which of course has a different (btinternet) address as the username.
I have set up Outlook to send and receive both e-mail accounts, but the question is, do I still need to keep dialling in to maintain the old address or will the fact that I am using a BT Broadband connection be enough?
The otherwise very helpful chap in the call centre when I set up the new subscription didn't know, and asked me to let him know if I found out!
Accessing your old email accounts via outlook is usually sufficient to keep the email address alive. I do not know if this will be sufficient to be able to dial in to the the accoiunt presumably using the email address as a username.
