Hi all.  I've been unable to access my emails for 10 days.  I've been in regular contact with Spark and have been elevated to a tier two (no idea what that is).. I've heard from no one and am desperate to access my emails.  They told me it was a problem with my browser, but I've tried to access them on my laptop, work computer, ipad, iphone.. someone elses surface tablet and laptop and the same message appears...  Spark have been no help whatsoever and I'm getting desperate.  I've lost work as I didn't receive the emails and I'm now totally at my wits end.  I know nothing about these things but in my mind, if I can't access my email from a multitude of different devices then it must be a problem with either my email settings, or something Spark has happening at the other end of my email...  Has anyone else had this problem and how did they solve it please.  Thank you.

Have you tried setting up a POP email client like Thunderbird to check your email?

I suspect it hasn't found it's way to the right desk.

Were all those devices using your home's wifi? Might be a DNS issue. Try using your mobile data or a work/neighbour/public wifi to see if you can access the logon page.

What OP is referring to is browsing to https://www.spark.co.nz/xtramail

 

 

 

is a missing redirect that used to be there.

EDIT: You need a / after the xtramail, i.e., www.spark.co.nz/xtramail/ rather than www.spark.co.nz/xtramail

Hi there... I've not tried this either.. I don't have any cell service at home and use a sure signal which goes through the broadband (preaching to the choir I'm sure, you all know more about these things than I do!!)... I'm heading out tomorrow so will try it then... Thank you all for your suggestions... I'm about to loose the plot!!
