First day of the new "No Ihug website" service and you now get redirected to the vodafone website to log in.

Firstly it comes up with a browser error saying the security certificate is invalid. Its issued to webmail.ihug.co.nz not to vodafone.co.nz.

If you continue anyway (despite the warnings not to do so), you get a "page not found" error.

Good effort on the move. Maybe someone should have done something crazy like actually testing the changes.

Hi Phil, what browser are you using? I've just tried with both IE5 and Firefox 2.0.0.13 and it's worked fine. Takes you through to the Vodafone page all about home phone and broadband offers. My colleague has just tried Safari and it's all good.

Let me know and I'll chase up with the team.

Cheers

Paul

I tried it on both IE7 and firefox.
I've just tried again, and the page layout has changed.
It used to have a radio button option to choose account or webmail, but the webmail is now a link to a seperate login page.
The new login page works ok, so thats good - I must have tried in the middle of a switch over.

However, it would be nicer to have a single login for my phone account, ihug account and email. Its a bit odd having 3 seperate logins for the same site.

I get the same thing on IE7.

Im using my existing shortcut of https://webmail.ihug.co.nz/

Which comes up with the certificate error. After I accept the "threat" I end up at https://webmail.ihug.co.nz/vfwebmail/ and the IE7 address bar is all red due to the certificate problem.

I can log in no problem once Im there though

This could be resolved by just directing all http(s)://webmail.ihug.co.nz to https://webmail.vodafone.co.nz/vfwebmail/

Then *.vodafone.co.nz would be applicable, and there won't be a problem.

Both of the pages are the same, so why not?

Well, it seems PhilM has some truth to his story:
  • Login via the direct URL of https://webmail.ihug.co.nz throws up the certificate authentication problem
  • Login via My Vodafone's "Home phone and internet" tab and using the Webmail radio button, goes through the certificate authentication problem (as it's going through https://webmail.ihug.co.nz, even though quite a lot of links on Vodafone's site lead to https://webmail.vodafone.co.nz) AND it doesn't land on a valid page which produces the 404. (Try it out by going to https://webmail.ihug.co.nz/abc)

    The solution for this lies in Vodafone's My Vodafone account handling system (as the webmail login goes through that server before reaching https://webmail.ihug.co.nz...)
It's April Fools day, staff must have gone crazy or something... Laughing

EDIT: Vodafone, you need some very good explanations for your management of the second problem I listed, as it goes to: https://webmail.ihug.co.nz/cgi-bin/webmail.cgi?cmd=login&force_connection=true&frames=true&selected_tpl=5&no_tcode=true&user=[USERNAME BLEEPED]&pass=[RAW PASSWORD BLEEPED]

That is some serious security problem, as I would expect something like that to be a bit more secure than that... I would rather follow what you used to do and have a link to webmail (which came from the cookie problem...)
