90 days. But that period can be irregular so get cracking now and transfer your mail and contacts to a new e-mail address with a non-ISP linked provider then you'll never have to do this again.

I do not work for VM. The advice I give is based on my best understanding of VM policy and practice. You rely on it at your own risk.

Re: Am leaving Virgin how long do I keep my blueyonder address and access emails for?

Not allowed to recommend and wouldn't anyway. But there are two big ones out there. One starts with a G and belongs to an evil empire that is trying to take over the world and makes children watch its video clips service incessantly. The other one I use, because like the weather, I like a favourable outlook. But there are smaller outfits and I hear good reports of one that sounds like Soho but has a Z instead of an S at the start . It does however have some limited functionality when used as a freebie.

When my wife and my bestie lost their Freeserve accounts last year (service was closed by Orange) they went for the G mob. They like it.

Thanks again HowardML... at the risk of pushing my luck here. Any advice on transferring contacts in my VM account to a save place or on lets say...G, er,  male for instance. How would I go about doing that? Thanks

You posted about this in another thread and I replied with all the advice you need on managing the transition of your contacts.

Importing them - Google for the advice because it is slightly different for each mail platform.
