Hi

 

Just wanted to ensure this Community got an FYI re the below.

 

 

 

From mid-June, Vodafone is reaching out to customers to check whether unused email addresses are still required. The message sent is:

 

 

 

Hi there,

We noticed you haven’t used your (email address) email in at least 6 months.
Because this hasn’t been used in quite some time we’re thinking you may no longer need it – so we’ve scheduled it to be closed on 31 July 2017.

Want to keep it going?
Simply log in and send an email from (your email address) to keepmyemail@vodafone.co.nz BEFORE 15 July.

Don’t need it any longer?
You don’t need to do anything – we’ll close it off for you.

Thanks
Your Team at Vodafone

 

 

 

This message relates to email that uses these domains:

 

  • vodafone.co.nz
  • vodafone.net.nz
  • ihug.co.nz
  • clear.net.nz
  • wave.co.nz
  • pcconnect.co.nz
  • quik.co.nz
  • paradise.net.nz
Want to keep your email address?

 

     

  1. Use your email address via your software or webmail to
  2. Send an email to keepmyemail@vodafone.co.nz from that email address before 15 July 2017.

 

Don't want it anymore?

 

Don't do anything and we'll shut it down on 31 July 2017.

Will this accidentally include email aliases?

Wise to include links? Almost reads like a phishing email..

So hope there are no plans to start recycling the unused email address!

What about people who are solely using the SMTP server to send email, but not receive. Are they going to find their email stops working?

Last I used vodafone for email there was no auth on the smtp, or ssl even and it let you put anything as the address so I guess not. Perhaps this is a precursor to a proper email platform being rolled out tho? No point migrating dead and disused accounts.

Just stop doing that. Stop. It relies on old crap servers. Makes the set up non-portable between providers. and is just plain annoying. Stop it.

It amazes me the amount of IT professionals who still go and use the open ISP mail servers. Especially with the likes of SMTP2GO providing a fantastic solution.
