I have an email address that I use on my father’s account, that I wish to keep. Until I get a chance to set up my own BT Broadband, I would like to keep this email and set it up as a standalone premium email under my name, breaking away from my father’s account. This would be with his permission. Phoned BT and they said it’s not possible. I’m sure I read that someone did this, but I can’t find the post on the forum. Please can a Mod help.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Assuming that the email account that you want to keep is your email account but it had been set up from your father's BT Broadband account you should be able to move to a BT Premium email account as long as it all meets certain criteria.
The first thing you will need to ensure is that the email address has been "gifted" to you and that you have set up your own BTID/MyBT in order to manage the email account.
See sub link about "gifting" an email account.
