Once my BT contract is up I think I will look to move away, unfortunately I have a very sensible email address at BT which I use for adulting purposes and have done for years Grin

So if I leave BT it is quite likely I will lose this email and most of the other main stream provides (Hotmail, Gmail etc) no longer have a decent email address available for me unless I have Bewster5643131which I don't want.

I thought maybe I could use some service where I can get a family domain - so xxxxxxx@bewster.co.uk and pick email address for each family member but to be honest I am not techy enough to know where to start.

What does everyone recommend ?

I use Fasthosts for all of my domain based email addresses. Used them for years without issue.

I have a BT e-mail address but do not use BT for anything (Virgin all the way through).  It costs me £5 a month to keep my addy.  No problems although i do have to sign into BT to access them, no hassle though.

Go to namecheap.com and buy a domain, then go and set it up on Zoho for free. Thatís what Iíd do (and Iíll do it for you once youíve purchased a domain if you want).

Or but the domain and their cheapest shared hosting plan (Stellar, US Datacentre) for £19.31 a year, get a free .website domain, or buy a better one, and have 30 email boxes and 20GB space.

Or use Google Apps (or whatever itís now called) like I think batch is saying. Itís £3.33 per user per month. And as before Iíd help you set it up if required.

Feel free to pm me if you want any help. Which reminds me I was trying to help Oxford fan...

This is exactly what I do, same providers.

Used to use Gmail but decided Google already knew enough about me so preferred they didn't go sniffing all of my email too.

Yeah, itís my default setup. And I also ďtryĒ to move from Google (DuckDuckGo for all searches unless stuck) and chrome only for none personal and mundane things.

Google apps used to provide a free tier so I do still have quite a few accounts there.
