Can I keep my comcast email address after I discontinue my service?

Email Expert

Re: email

In a word------no.  As with most ISPs, Comcast email is proprietary.  Once you drop their service the email account will no longer be available to you.  So you need to consider whether you have any contacts or emails you want to transfer over to your next ISP or other email provider.  If you are switching to another ISP they probably have a mechanism for you to do that, but you would have to do it before you cancel the Comcast service.  An alternative would be to transfer your data to a free-standing email account like Yahoo, Gmail or Outlook.com, that is not dependant on any ISP.  But again-----you need to do so before you cancel the Comcast service.
