No.  Once the account is closed all messages sent to that account will fail and bounce back to the sender.

If Charter is your Internet Service Provider, they don't have to be your email account service provider. You can make the change now to a Gmail account (or Yahoo or Hotmail), and that will be your account despite whatever changes of location or ISP you may have in the future. Some people also purchase their own domain name which makes it even harder to lose your personal email account for any reason.

When you set up your new account, you need to notify all your contacts so they can start using the new email address before you lose the old one. With a Gmail account you can set up Mail Fetcher to download a copy of the messages from your old account so you'll still have them for future reference after it closes. To do this, go to Settings > Accounts and Import > Check mail from other accounts (using POP3): > Add a POP3 mail account you own > follow the prompts to set up .........
