Received "account has been disconnected" notice?

I used to have verizon cable and land line. I canceled both when I moved over 5 years ago. I kept my verizon email by paying $20 per year since. This weekend I got an email stating my verizon email account was disconnected and a credit for $3.63. I didn't cancel my email and calling customer service is useless as there is no dedicated customer service for email and they keep saying they can't help me because it's not connected to a land line or fios or anything. I cannot lose the email sent to my verizon email account. Who can help me?
