Can you ping the email server? If so what error message is it giving you when you try to log in?

Its an @ihug address other email address on my account is @vodafone that one is working, but the @ihug seems to have gone!

This better be fixable, the ihug email account is 15 years old..

Suggest you have a look over my earlier post and give us more information. If you don't understand ping, don't know the server name to ping or need help working out SMTP errors just ask.

Hmm... sounds like another billing glitch. I'm actually trying to fix another account with a similar issue, so you're welcome to send me your customer info so I can figure out why this happened and fix it for you asap.

When changing you over to the Fibre Billing system (the Ex tcl) they have to setup your Vodafone/iHug email on the old billing system. When doing so the person who set it up likely didn't check the domain and it defaulted to vodafone.co.nz rather than ihug.
Simple 30 second change if you wish to wait on hold for someone to awnser.

Eh, close but that's not it. :P But yes, changing over to another billing platform alongside human error is the root cause.
