I'm using dial-up with Telecom but want to switch to Orcon for broadband.  Does anyone know if my Xtra e-mail address will remain active when I disconnect the dial-up with Telecom?
An Orcon rep told me that he was using Telecom, switched to Orcon and his Xtra e-mail account has remained open (accessed thru the xtra.co.nz website). 
Anyone know if this is the case?  I want my Xtra address but obviously don't want to keep paying for dial-up to keep it.

Thanks

Tim

You can keep the email address active but you have to pay $2.81 a month for it.

The best option now that you are moving ISPs is to have your own domain and host the email with a third party - Windows Live Domain or Google Apps Free for example. This way you are not attached to one specific ISP.
