      I reckon it will go, but not sure though.

      This is the reason why I never ever use ISP email.

      when i moved from eclipse to sky my old email didnt stop infact it still recieves unable to use it to send

      why not set-up a seperate googlemail address and import your emails to it since sky use gmail anyway

      Your sky mail account is linked to your sky account so once that closes in theory your email account should too but there is no guarantee if it will close immediately or 6 months down the line when google catches up.

      I would fully recommend getting an email address that is separate either a free service like gmail/hotmail/yahoo. If you purchase a domain you can also have your own email address eg me@mydomain.com

      If you do this make sure you forward all your ISP's email to your new email account or check it regularly!
