You do not pay for the email with BT. It is classed as a free value added service. This has been agreed as by Ofcom.

 

As you will no doubt have read the Terms and Conditions when you signed up with BT you will have noted that you agreed to there being adverts and as such BT can put adverts on it.

 

See Terms & Conditions section 35

 

You understand and agree that the Service will include advertisements and that these advertisements are necessary for BT to provide the Services.

Or give Murdoch a wedge and suffer frequent ad breaks on Sky, or buy a newspaper and find much of it wasted on full-page ads, or pay to go to the cinema and have to sit through Pearl & Dean?

Assuming that you are using a web browser to view your email then simply use a AdBlocker add-on to your browser to suppress ads. I use a well known one and it sucessfully blocks the ads on the (rare) ocassions I access my email via my browser.
