      Sky email after leaving Sky

      Hi there,

      I have cancelled my contract with Sky few weeks ago, but I'm just wondering if I will be able to use my email account with Sky.
      I am able to log in and send/recive emails, have contacted Sky by phone - they've said 'no', have send them an email they said 'you should be able', and I am just a bit confused....
      Anyone has an idea or some ecperiences with this matter?

      Thanks in advance,
      Kevin

      technically, if you still have Sky TV, you should be able to access it...was having this conversation with someone the other day as my email was running before i went live...I'd always suggest having an email service with someone other than an ISP (Google for example) as it'll never get cancelled...

      If you have sky tv then as long as it wasn't changed at all when you went to BB you should still have access via your original primary account. All Sky tv customers get email access, if you don't have any sky services then no you do not get access to email. Unfortunately if it's been messed up you would need to get it sorted via the webmail team.

      Always best to use your own domain to receive email - That way no-one can ever prevent you from using the address (unless you forget to pay the domain renewal fee!). Most domain hosts allow you an effectively unlimited number of addresses and you set it up to forward mail on each address to a mailbox of your choice (work, gmail, hotmail, ISP etc etc)

      Domain registration and hosting is cheap and you can share the cost amongst your whole family if you choose the domain carefully.

      Re: Sky email after leaving Sky

      After reading the replies it seems may default Sky Username email address is safe after leaving as long as i still have Sky TV.
      Does anyone know if additional email addresses will stay active for as long as I'm a sky customer ?
      I emailed Sky over a week ago about this and had no reply.
