      Apparently you mention it to them when you phone up for the MAC code.

      My old BT email was one of the @btinternet.com accounts and it still works fine, although I think my storage limit on it my have been reduced. Left BT about 6 months ago.

      @ Koala5, mine is an old .btinternet address as well and as I said earlier it still works, although all I get via it now is mostly spam as I have moved all my mail away to other accounts.

      When your BT broadband service is closed it is automatically downgraded to a free pay as you go account. When you sign in as normal you'll be "thanked" for changing your product and if you have more than 5 email addresses you'll be asked which ones you want to keep. Everything else stays the same - all your mail is kept, web space, spamguard settings, addressguard addresses, portal etc. You're also told that you need to access the account at least once every 3 months to keep it active. The inference is that this must be via dial-up but that's not clearly stated.

      You get a main and four subs. Are you saying you have a main and 5 subs?
