Pro Tip

From the Telegraph
Thousands of Virgin Media broadband customers are being transferred to TalkTalk and will lose their virgin.net email address, a move that has infuriated customers.

Virgin Media is in the process of transferring 100,000 non-cable broadband and home phone customers to TalkTalk. These customers will have 12 months to adopt a new email address.
However, customers who choose to move to a different provider instead of TalkTalk will have only 90 days to change their email.

Tim Palmer, a Virgin customer from north London, said the move would cause “huge inconvenience” to his family, which uses the email address as a login for internet banking, online shopping and other services.
This is why I recommend that people get a domain name for their family, doesn't matter what it is. You could just have therobinsons.co.uk or thebrowns.co.uk. Then you create a email addresses for each person (e.g. [email protected] and [email protected]) and forward them to the real email that it's going to. Costs about a fiver a year, but it does mean that you keep your email address for life. If you stop liking your internet provider, you just sign up with someone else and switch your email to the new address.
