      No, it is for life. You will be able to use it through the Web email page.

      This is one reason why Gmail, Yahoo! & Hotmail are so popular.

      I think it is with sky but my @talktalk.net email was just recently closed. I'd check up on it and double check because now I'm having to make sure I have contacted everyone about the change

      No need to check, they definately state it on their help pages, and I left a year ago and it is still working fine, both via the web and POP/SMTP.

      Yes. You can even remove the association with an old sky account and add an @sky email to a new one if you rejoin at a later date!

      Re: @sky.com email address question

      I left Sky broadband over 30 months ago and my Sky email address is still going strong. I don't get a lot on it mind you, just an occasional email from Sky.

      I gave up using ISP provided email addresses a long time ago and now have my own domain and email addresses. I can move freely between ISP's and not have to worry about my email address any longer.
      Regards

      Squirrel
