Got an old Paradise email address that I no longer use, all it gets now is spam.

How do I get it closed? (note: haven't checked with Vodafone yet)

Yeah your best bet is to ask Vodafone since it went from Paradise >> Clear >> TelstraClear >> Vodafone they'd be the ones to ask

It's a 1 minute job for them to remove it. Call them up

I wish Vodafone would just turn that server off completely. Far far too many businesses are using it and worse, they are using Vodafone's SMTP server which allows open relay on their network.
Customer changes ISP and suddenly they can't send mail any more!

At one stage they were going to do that, and create alias so all Paradise addresses were simply an alias for a clear.net address

My understanding was that this idea was canned because it would have created far too many support issues.

There are lots of good common sense ideas that once scaled up to large numbers then become bad ideas.
My guess is that would be one of them.
Yesterday I fixed an @es.co.nz address for somebody which iHug stopped selling long before I started working there back in 2006.




Please note: I have a professional bias towards Vodafone.

I'm being pedantic, but it was Paradise>TelstraSaturn>TelstraClear>Vodafone.

I also still use a Paradise email address, for which I use Outlook as the collector. I have maybe one spam email per month at the very most.

well if you want to be pedantic about it it was actually Paradise >> Clear >> ClearSaturn >> TelstraClear >> Vodafone

It was Clear who bought out Saturn and stopped further deployment of the saturn cable network just before it was due to hit Hawkes Bay Telstra then bought out Clear a few years later to become TelstrClear

If you want to be pedantic, it was Clear Communicaions Ltd aka CCL

I like walking around the place looking at the different old manhole covers, I guess they're kind of the public branding that lasts longest. Sometimes they're NZPO, Saturn, TelstraClear, Telecom, Chorus...

OK. Here we go. Saturn did a 50/50 merge with Telstra NZ in 2000, and became TelstraSaturn. TelstraSaturn bought Paradise. Then TelstraSaturn bought Clear Communications from BT and became TelstraClear. Vodafone then bought TelstraClear.

At no stage did Clear buy out Saturn. TelstraSaturn bought Clear. You've got your mergers and acquisitions in the wrong order.

Feel free to check. :-)

Must have been fun remembering who you currently worked for!
