Madasafish webmail still accessible ?

I changed from Madasafish to Plusnet a couple of weeks ago, but I can still log into my MAF webmail, even though you can't access it via the POP server , and I can no longer access my MAF customer account. Shouldn't the web mail have been disabled too?

Probably a silly question but when you moved over to Plusnet did you leave the incoming server as mail.madasafish.com and change the outgoing sever to relay.plus.net and unrick the My outgoing server requires authentication

No . The pop servers for the mail programme are both set to Plusnet values because I deleted the MAF account and created a new one for the Plusnet address.  What I want to know is , why can I still access it via the Madasafish home page (turned out it was a good thing actually because I was looking for an email I thought I'd lost) when the email address is supposed to be no longer valid?

Why the email hasn't been cancelled I have no idea.
If you set up a new account with the Madasafish details but with the Plusnet outgoing server (relay.plus.net) you will be able to continue using it until someone pulls the plug

@Rik13, think I can see what's happened here. Do you want me to disable Webmail access for you?

Thanks  Bob, it's just that I was told I would no longer be able to use that email address after I moved to + net.
Is it supposed to have been disabled ?

there is a very similar query in the Computer Active Mag, 18-31 Aug issue 352 edition page 65 from Wendy Sayer, it was previously in Edition 351 and this was a follow up
just dug out 351, the mag complained that PN hadnt answered  their query
