In many cases, you won't have to do anything. If you have Gmail or another "forever" email you'll continue to receive your email. If your
email is through your previous ISP you may be able to keep that too. Comcast, for example, has a policy in place that allows you to keep your email accounts even if you do not purchase their service.
From their website:
As a former XFINITY customer, you can still use your Comcast.net email address if you logged into your account in the 90 days prior to disconnecting your service. Your email account will remain active as long as you access it at least once every nine months.
