In a word mate,No.You may be able to receive but not send emails from this address.I can still receive mails from an old dial up pay as you go account I had (but not send them) but I cannot use the address from my last broadband account at all (ISP cancelled it).Hope this helps.:)

[SIZE=2]If you can downgrade to PAYG dial-up then you can still send email with it so long as you change the smtp to your new provider.[/SIZE]

[SIZE=2]eg. If with Virgin but moving to Tiscali, go into settings for Virgin email on Outlook Express or its equivalent, change the Virgin smtp to smtp.tiscali.co.uk. [/SIZE]

You can still receive emails through Outlook Express for orange email account, as I do. I moved to BT, but it will not let me send them.
I don't know if creating a new identity would work with orange details set as defualt, probably not.

You can still log in to your email account on the orange home page after leaving and receive and emails from there, similar to using a hotmail account.

No offense, but why would you want to keep it for business purposes? @orange.net or @fsmail.net (or whatever it is these days) hardly looks professional does it......

You should buy your own domain, it'll only cost a few quid a year and is yours to keep regardless of your ISP. Try http://www.123-reg.co.uk/ or similar.

My advise is to update them. Maybe a slight rebrand and then let your customers know with some nice friendly letters and business cards. :thumbsup:

Then again I would say that because I have my own design business BUT I have seen this work for so many people that it must help to have a professional email.

I used to have a postmaster account for example and I never made as many contacts as I have over the past 2 years with a proper business email.

Of course a quality service helps but you always need to look the part to make the contacts. Once you make them everything is so much easier believe me! :)

Also you can claim back such things on your tax return. :thumbsup:

So in effect it's not really costing you anything. It's keeping the tax man happy but putting something back into the business! :thumbsup:
