I believe you will loose any charter email account and all emails on the server as soon as you cancel your HSI service.

If everything is done properly, those email addresses will be suspended/purged when the service is disconnected.

thought so.. i shouldn't expect any better service from a company that has 3mbit cable 10 minutes from a place with 7mbit cable.. oh, tech support which doesn't know anything but ping and traceroute.. and the best hold times for phone support when latency issues are occuring (weekly).

thanks for your help!

Don't they still forward your e-mails for 30 days, if you inform them? Used to a long time ago around here.

All account information from logins to email is deleted.

They didn't setup forwarding while I was there and still don't to this day.

**Forgot to mention also effects the Charter High Speed Security Suite, you loose functionality.**

I don't think they have an obligation to some one that's no longer there customer.

Easy answer to your problem, spend a few more dollars each month and have your own e-mail address for as long as you pay the bill.

I pay $15 a month for my lame web site, with about 10 e-mail accounts, and a large e-mail storage.

Therefor I am not beholden to any broadband provider, and can switch anytime I find a better/cheaper deal.

Ya know, I've been preaching this gospil forever:
GET A FREE E-MAIL ACCOUNT AS YOUR MAIN ACCOUNT!!!!
HELLO!!!!
Jeeze, people-Yahoo, MSN, AIM, ect..offers FREE e-mail. I have Charter HSI, but don't have Charter as my MAIN e-mail account.
Why? Well....jeeze, ain't wast'in my time explaining myself here..
As P.T. Barnum stated way back when:"There's an idiot born EVERY minute"

I've had the same e-mail address for over 8 years. At www.bigfoot.com offers free free e-mail forwarding, you will never get an account there never have worry about changing your e-mail address. Since then I've had 3 or 4 ISP's no one has know the difference.

GMail. 2 GB of storage, from a reputable company, and a very innovative interface. (Trust me, once you use it, you'll never go back.)

Charter, like any ISP, will kill your e-mail address if you are no longer a subscriber.
