Hmmm, maybe you should look at the contract you signed when you
started service with them?

The contract I have clearly states that service can only be cancelled
by a request in ***WRITING***

Seems to me that you are being obstinate in not providing what you've
contracted to do...

(I presume this clause is because of the ease of forging Email, to
prevent other obnoxious people from cancelling your account).
