1702. Firing AT&T—What Happens to Email?

I’ve been a somewhat unhappy customer of AT&T over the past 15 years, and now I’m moving to a new home where I’ll be using Comcast as my new Internet service provider (ISP). I’ve been using my att.net email address ever since I started using AT&T as my ISP, and I’m going crazy worrying about what’s going to happen to all my emails and contacts, and how anyone will reach me once I “fire” AT&T.

Can you help?

We have on many occasions reminded people that if you have any option for email please try not to use your ISP free email account because sooner or later you will run into this problem.  On top of that AT&T, Yahoo and SBCGlobal.net are all the same email service and they're all plagued with terrible Spam problems. 

I often get emails from people from those domains asking for money or just including a single spammy link. In all case to solve this particular problem I have read online that if you call AT&T they will allow you to continue using your ATT.net email address for free or for a small fee long enough so you can migrate to a real working email provider like Outlook.com or GMail.com. Either one will give you better service and less spam problems. In any case don't give up contact AT&T and see if they will allow you to continue using that email address until you can replace it with something better.
