    I currently have an email address set up while a dial up user. I have since gotten wi fi service in my area and now have an account with that service provider. If I cancel my dial up account with AT&T, will I then lose that email address and user id?Seems like a rather ignorant question, but I don't want to lose all of my info but also don't want to keep paying needlessly. Thank you.

    Thank you. I was afraid that was the case. When asking AT&T, they just said basically "Maybe."

    It's odd that AT&T would not give you a straight answer. They should be able to let you know one way or the other if you get to keep the email address. Maybe we are to infer from that answer that they are not good housekeepers and the email might stay active for a period of time after the dialup service in canceled?
