I'd strongly hope that your ISP is OS agnostic; the protocols
that commonly flow over the public networks certainly are. The
only ones who can answer it for sure would be your ISPs service
team ... ;}

How are you using/accessing your account and/or e-Mail?

Hi Mac 09, I can't think of any reason you wouldn't be able to access that account with any OS providing you know the pop/imap and smtp server settings and ports.
Good luck. ;-)
