As a result of an upcoming house move I'll be losing access to my telewest/blueyonder/virgin media email accounts that I've had, like, forever. I'm actually looking forward to the reduction in spam (of all sorts). It's a bit of a pain trying to work out everywhere I'm registered with those email addresses though.
Ditto here...Virgin were charging nearly £30 more p/m than BT, so I felt I was being held to ransom (been with them 15 years w/same email address).
It's actually been pretty easy, over the last month I've updated all the account details for stuff I deal with regularly, then I had one night of downloading all the emails off their server using outlook and scanning through mails to see what I wanted to update. I kept a plain text file in Dropbox to record what had been changed. Most of the stuff I was glad to leave behind. It was handy doing this before I lost the old email address so you can still get sent password reminders.
So far Virgin have not cut off the old email...despite them telling me it would be pulled the day of transfer.
It's been a lesson learned...never use ISP email.
