Email settings change - is my email address changing?

Hello, I understand I will have to change my email settings - will my email address change from ntlworld.com to virginmedia.com, just to be clear?

That's right. Think of it as a change due to a road closure.  Your address hasn't changed and deliveries will still get to you but by a different route in future.  Same with outgoing deliveries to your contacts.  Everybody still knows who you are and where you live.     Smiley Happy

Think of the addresses you connect to, not as the actual servers where the emails are, but as gateways to the real servers.  The real servers haven't changed since the migration from Google to Ziggo.

But even if Virgin changed providers again, all they do is update special DNS entries that tell mail servers where to send mail for addresses ending in, for example, ntlworld.com.
