A question from a friend. He asked me if it is possible to keep his '.fr' e-mail address when he moves back to the U.K. or is he going to have to change it and have to inform 1/2 the world of the change???

It's not a question I've thought of before, hence the question here :o :o

It is technically possible, but to do it I think (s)he will have to keep paying their French internet company to do so and whether that is organisationally possible for French firm to get their mind around is quite another question.

We have had our club-internet (SFR) address for 18 years and when we moved to our current house, we binned SFR because of their rubbish service and went to Orange (not much better !). Despite dumping them, SFR said we could keep our email address and it costs us nothing. Perhaps it depends on the provider but you may well find you can keep it.
We have several Orange email addresses just in case for some reason SFR change their minds !

Maybe it could be added as a second address to someone else's account?

That is one benefit of a hotmail/gmail/yahoo account, I guess.

Otherwise he could bite the bullet and buy his own domain - memorable if nothing else and totally portable.

We moved from Alice to Free and I still have my alice address and use it all the time. We have numerous .com and .co.uk ones too. These are free to use when ever. You can attach all your email addresses to the one you use mainly anyway and they all get sent there. Its not an issue.
