MikeHales: Yes, that is correct

 

Ah, cheers. This is good to know. I'm managing a dozen or so business e-mails that I have moved on to other platforms but who still get the odd essential e-mail to their old address from someone who has not updated their address book/doesn't know how to.

 

I'm yet to receive the "Change Your e-mail" e-mail from Vodafone but whenever they do I'll make sure they are updated that way. I should be able to sort this all remotely, apologies I bet all my questions are probably answered in the e-mail but I was just trying to be proactive.

This whole dropping email thing is pathetic by Vodafone. The vast majority of Users do NOT have access to MikeHales, so how will they know that current forwarding gets dropped?

 

Clearly email is too hard for VF, so is decent communication. I for one am still waiting for VF's communication. Nothing in my latest invoice. But wait....if email is too difficult for VF then decent communication is as well!!

 

 

On behalf of the whole industry (including Vodafone) "we know and we agree with you..."  And this is why we provided you with an industry of choices so you can always find a provider that meets your service expectations.

 

"We" build one of the most robust domain name DRSs in the world which includes 'monthly billing' so that you can have your own domain name (check out mine in my signature!).  With this you can move between providers at your leisure.  see - https://www.dnc.org.nz/

 

We have one of the most robust internet consumer advocacy groups in the world with an international reputation - see https://internetnz.nz/

 

We have a world leading data network which has moved us 25 positions higher up the global rankings that Australia in the form of the UFB - see https://www.crowninfrastructure.govt.nz/

 

I deal with data centers around the world and I can tell you that we have one of the easyist countries in the world to deal in!  We also have more choice in terms of carrier neutral resources and an extensive range of providers from budget to 'full service high end, top quality solution providers'.

 

Sir, I personally find your comments to be quite offensive towards a team of people who have constantly worked over 30 years to bring you choice.  Perhaps we need a time machine to send you back to the days of 1987 when I started in the telecommunications industry and the choice was Telecom and getting anything approved to work on their network was a minimum $3,000 entry fee.

Cable is still underperforming after well over a year. Maybe this should also be cut, as its clear VF dont understand the technology.

 

As far as email goes a more palatable solution may have been to ditch all the domain names and just have one. Perhaps VF could manage a single domain name.

One grumble.

 

 

 

I've got 2 Paradise email accounts and on both the email from Vodafone was in the Paradise webmail spam folder. I do not remember ever marking Vodafone emails as spam.

 

 

 

Grrrr.

Pumpedd:  Cable is still underperforming after well over a year.

 

I built a suburban wireless network across 3 suburbs just to avoid that network ;)

 

The HFC is what it is.  CFH have over built it with UFB, so the only thing to be said is 'change providers if you're not happy'.

+5 for the above. 

 

I have five paradise.net.nz email accounts. All Vodafone 'Important Messages' (from the actual ISP that manages those accounts) ended up in the spam folders.  Most of which are no longer available because they were purged automatically!

 

Two of those important messages were saved. The first forwarding 'set up' link that I tried then failed immediately onscreen with 'Invalid email address'.

 

I have been with paradise since the first days of 'Jetstream' - For all of those past years before VF acquired it from clear.net it was a rock-solid-no-spam-ever top notch service.

 

I'm seriously unimpressed so far.

Once you've setup your new email, do you have to transfer all your existing emails over so you can still access them after Nov 30?

Not if they've not been removed from Vodafone's servers. IMAP (webmail) will have no access. Either download them to your local machine (my recommendation) or manually transfer them.

 

 

 

Check out vodafone.co.nz/email for further details and instructions.

There has been a phishing spam floating around that I seem to get at least every month or two as below, considering now the info is fairly factual. Vodafone need to imediately create some filters to remove them!

 

Dear username@ihug.co.nz,

 

We received a message to terminate your email account (username@ihug.co.nz) on 11/09/2017, the process by our Vodafone Security Team…..
 
This is a warning or your email will be terminated.

I know this was briefly mentioned earlier in the thread but what are peoples recommendations for setting up their own domain names and hosting? I'm willing to spend a little but hopefully less than $100 per year for half a dozen or so addresses on the one domain, is that possible?

I subscribe to a number of websites using paradise email as my login. Not sure how to correct this without having to resubscribe.

@Pumpedd login to those websites and update the email address or contact the admin for the sites if you can't do it online

I saw Zoho mentioned in this thread already but they even do a free option (50 users, 5GB per user) for mail hosting. https://www.zoho.com/mail/

1stdomains, discountdomains.co.nz and onlydomains are a few to start with. The latter two also provide email subscriptions.

 

If you're an Outlook user and wish to explore all it has to offer there is Microsoft's Office 365 Essentials, which gives you access to Exchange Online. Mate this with your own domain name. For many of my users this has been a boon, as it allows them to have a 'live' experience across all their devices.

My understanding is you can still use that email as your username/log in.
