Does anyone know how long you can access your old email address for??

We have just switched ISP, yet (not complaining) I can still log in to the old ISP website and access my old email address.  Kinda handy, but I was left wondering if they will still charge me for usage or if it just has to run through the next bill cycle.

We ported the service from one ISP to the next.

lol, I was really really hoping to not have to call them.

Interesting question, I never went back and checked my old email address after changing over  unsure.gif

I would assume it will be closed within the next billing cycle. Would be silly of the ISP to allow you space when you are no longer with them.

Maybe someone else can answer it more for you.

beccajayne, I was thinking the same thing. That it would close off within the next billing cycle.  But yeah, I can log in, and was sending them to my new add but stopped doing that just in case they decided to charge me extra.

Ugh, I think I'm going to have to call them.

    How dogs could make children better readers

    Issues around children learning to read are rarely out of the news. Which is hardly surprising – becoming a successful reader is of paramount importance in improving a child's life chances. Nor is it surprising that reading creates a virtuous circle: the more you read the better you become. But what may come as a surprise is that reading to dogs is gaining popularity as a way of addressing concerns about children's reading.
