If one were to cancel their Broadband with Telecom, does that mean they lose their YahooXtra name@xtra.co.nz email address as well?

Yes, the only ISP I think that you keep your email address forever is Orcon.

OK, thanks very much.

Better to use gmail as its not isp specific

I'm pretty sure you can keep the address, but they charge you monthly for the privilege. I still have a few orcon addresses and I haven't been with orcon for over 3 years now!

I had a separate mynamextra.co.nz email account with telecom for 3 years - mainly because I had signed up with dozens of online accounts/sites originally with that email. Cost was about $2.50 per month. Slowly moved them to Gmail login accounts. When I upgraded to Telecom broadband my xtra email was auto converted to the Yahoo Pro type email, with it's features.
