Morning folks,

Easy question for someone in the know.. when you sign up for a XT Mobile broadband account, are you given an Xtra/Telecom mailbox with it?

Reason for asking is that I recently discovered there is excellent XT coverage out at my Aunts rural property, because of their location they've been unable to get fixed line broadband and have been struggling along with an XNet dial-up account until now.

Now she's up and running with the mobile broadband and it's performing very well, so she will be cancelling her XNet dial-up service (and losing her mailbox). Does she get an Xtra mailbox (I suspect not) or do I need to look at setting her up with Gmail or something?

Not that I know of.

And no-one needs to tell you Mr Jungle that ISP email accounts are silly silly silly :-)

Quite right re: ISP email accounts - however my Aunt is scared silly of her computer as it is (really!).. it would just be much simpler this way.
