Leaving Plusnet & keeping email address

I'm trying to help a relative - he's come to live with us as he can't manage on his own. I've cancelled his home phone and broadband and asked to keep the email sevice. I got a message to say the cancellation would happen but no mention  of email account. When I replied to this I got an auto response to saying no-one read these messages. What happens next? I really need to be sure his email is kept "live" to help him sort out his affairs.

And maybe a simpler question - When I open a plusnet email (webmail) it displays OK - when I want to reply the original message appears with lots of code. How do I fix this?

Fix

Hi there,

We'll need to allow the cancellation to go through before we're able to change the account to email only, as the cancellation will generate the final bill and ensure he's not billed following that.

Once the cancellation does happen, while his emails will stop working, we'll then need to reactivate his account, he'll need to re-setup his mailboxes by going to Manage My Mail Here and he should be up and running again.

I recommend asking him to log into the Manage My Mail before the account is cancelled to make a note of all the mailboxes and settings he's got as it'll be easier to re-setup them up after. 

Sorry for the hassle this causes, feel free to PM me his username and I'll be happy to keep an eye on this and call him back (or you if you're an authorised user on his account) to arrange this. 

With regards to replying to an original message in webmail showing a lot of code, could you post up a screenshot to illustrate this? Just make sure you don't include any account specific information in the screenshot like email addresses etc. 

I hope this helps.

Thanks Gandalf. I'll wait for the cancellation to go through and take it from there. I took screenshots of his settings.

The second problem is solved The messages now appear the same in Inbox and Post Reply. I stiil don't know what was wrong before but I had tried various settings withouut success
