Answer your secret question

 

 

 

 

 "What is your petAs name?"

 

 

 

 

 

Thats from the Spark reset pass link.

 

I dont have a pet as . or pet ass . smile .
Does no one even check this stuff ?

 

 

 

Anyway, all this is damn good reason to make up lies for the security questions . If the security answers are stolen (eg date of birth), they can be used elsewhere.

Managers refusing to let us change?

 

Great patience coming from great suffering?

 

Bad Karma?

 

I'm dead and this really is hell?

I am.
I just cant be arsed moving all my mailing lists and default emails for online sellers to my gmail or outlook.com email.
Nothing important comes into my xtra email .

 

Many businesses still using @xtra.co.nz as their business email.
That just looks so sloppy & so low tech on their business cards . And those firms are sloppy with their IT, including accounting companies who
should know better .

yep gmails still good if you wanna go in with the google eco system.

 

 

if you want to go in with microsoft then outlook.com

 

 

 

if you want encryption/privacy then proton mail is good as well

Rather frustrating seeing this all pop up again and again, it is almost like yahoo don't learn...

 

 

 

on the spark side, Look forward to seeing their migration being over and Yahoo being no longer a problem for them to be dealing with.

I think if I was an Xtra user this would have been the straw that broke the Camels back. 

 

 

Spark have been migrating for some time now, however they do need permission to actually transfer the data. Alternative option is ofcourse recreating the account, but then the loss of email data will be like world war 3! my business using xtra mail lost its history!

Realistically if the business chooses to have email through spark, they should be using their business mail service, not the residential service at all.

 

I agree, it looks totally tacky..

Has there been any official word as to when this migration will culminate?  I probably get 15 phishmails a day now.  My Xtra account it littered with junk constantly.
