I received an email from Free net to advise they were going to move the email server etc and I need to set up the new link - ( I know my own fault I forgot) so today I am unable to get to my emails.  I have tried to call them using their 0800 number and no answer.  does anyone here have the new link they could share with me?


or even better a way to actually contact them.

Freenet, isn't that 20 years old?  Plus? Back in the DU days. If you don't know what DU means, cease reading.

Im up with the DU era and yes I have had the account for 17 years!


now no sign of them or how to get back into the new system they set up - I am trying to work out who owned them, think it was clear so if clear owned them I guess I may need to speak to Vodafone?


any one have any tips or clues about these guys?

Tip would be give up on Freenet, accept any emails are gone forever unless you have copies locally, and sign up to a free email provider of repute such as Outlook or Gmail.

I think he gave you Compass' number, who from what it looks like owns Freenet nowadays.
