Must be costing them a heap to support them. I can see most providers ceasing email in the not too distant future, leaving the big players like gmail and microsoft providing that sort of email service. Can also see it becoming a pay service, or at least an add on service bundled with another service.

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


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 



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. :-)



I stand corrected sealed

but at the end of it all the OP needs to talk to Vodafone

dafman: Good suggestion. Just rang Vodafone and cancelled my paradise.net.nz. Easy as.


Err, not quite.

Three phone calls to Vodafone over as many days - account has been disabled so I can't access, but no bounce back notification to senders of emails to the account- which is hopeless. Black hole.

Anyway, third person I spoke to today is very helpful, so fingers crossed for ultimate fix.

Telcos, never easy. Sigh.

es.co.nz belonged to Essential Software, which was taken over by Ihug in the mid nineties. I got my @es.co.nz address back in the days of 9600 kbps modems and I'm still happy to use it.

MaxLV: 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)


You don't use it, so what difference it makes if Vodafone keeps it open?

I can only understand you wanting to close it if you want a NDN (Non-Delivery Notification) to be sent to anyone emailing you. Otherwise, if you don't use it, don't access it...

I have a Paradise email address. I receive about three emails a month, all of them spam. These are collected by my gmail account and promptly put into the spam folder. Over the years I've changed everything that ever used it - thanks to having a good database of accounts on my eWallet since the late 90s...

Just realised that GZ was one of my remaining accounts using my Paradise email address.
Been slowly moving everything to Gmail.
Now updated thanks to this thread reminding me.
