Re: [BCAB] Switching email provider Agent Orange 24 Oct 2016 15:33 BST
Thanks Sean. Does anyone have any suggestions for a reliable email provider? I don't mind paying something for a reliable email service if that is necessary. Obviously I know about gmail, Hotmail etc, but I choose not to use them.

This doesn't include the ability to log into the "my account" pages to change or recover passwords etc, simply retrieve messages. Historically people on forums have been able to access this longer, but of course that's at the good will of TalkTalk rather than anything they offer as you aren't paying them at that point. I'd strongly advise checking this when you cancel, however, and would advise anybody to not, primarily, use an ISP-provided mailbox. They're good for backup, but unless you're guaranteed a long term relationship with them, you're much better off paying separately.
