I don't know about Wanadoo in the Netherlands but I'd assume that their
masters (France Telecom) apply much the same policies everywhere and that
what works in the UK will work there. If so, they'll allow POP3 access from
any ISP's network. The cancellation of an unmetered, fixed-monthly-payment
modem or DSL account will not cause the account itself to be closed, but
merely downgraded to a metered dial-up account. Failure to dial in at least
once every 90 days will, however, prevent access - whether via dial-up to
Wanadoo or (for POP3 purposes) from another ISP. 

RoMa should check with Wanadoo now while the accounts are still alive, or
ask about this in one of the wanadoo.nl.* newsgroups.
