when you change service providers, you cannot take your email address with you. It's just like it used to be in the old days with phone numbers; you just can't transfer them. When you close that account, your email address will be closed with it. Also, there isn't any service that can forward your emails after you close the account either. Only the ISP could do that since they own the email servers, and it doesn't make good business sense to help people leave their service. The smartest thing to do is get an email account that will move with you. You can get a free email account from Gmail, Yahoo Mail, or Outlook.com, just to name a few. Then, once you have setup your new email account, you can set up forwarding on your old ISP email account to your new email address before you close it. You'll have to manually change those accounts online, but this will make it much easier. If you setup a Gmail account, you can create filters that automatically label any email addresses are forwarded from your old account so that you can keep track of which companies are still using your old email address.
