Is is true if we switch from Shaw to Telus we cannot get a Telus email account.   We've been told this.

There are plenty of email providers gmail, yahoo to name a few. Always good not be tied to a provider in case you ever leave..

Thanks - I'm not fond of the gmail platform, so do prefer to continue with Outlook if possible.  Realize it may only be a matter of time when the providers discontinue the mail.

You can maintain an email account with Microsoft, if you wish, and access it through your Telus internet account.

Thank you - that sounds like a good idea.  If I setup a Gmail account on Outlook will I still be able to access the Gmail as webmail i.e. when travelling?

Yes. You really only have 1 email account at GMail. You are just accessing it from Outlook and/or a Web browser.
