Hi. I want to cancel my Orcon for life email account. I am no longer with Orcon but the odd person still sends me email. (even thou. I have told them many times...) I would much prefer they got a bounced email message. Can't find anything on Orcons site.

Thanks
Peter.

I re-directed all my emails to my new ISP.
You can do this yourself online:
Go to My Orcon > email settings > mail filters > forwarding

Or pm me your account number and I will totally, irreversibly and finally remove your Orcon mailbox for you. But it will go without any forwarding....
