This is becoming a serious concern now. I realise Mike is doing his best, but really what is going on VF? Should you even be an ISP?

Thanks but harsh! All above in hand, many thousands all set up and working and happy to help with any missing. Emails for those not set up forwarding yet (perhaps because not received) coming over next few days. All those requested on Monday or before should be working - if not, let me know.

Mike is doing a great job at answering our queries. I hope you have some diazepam/lorazepam/clonazepam on hand - I know for sure I would need some if I was in your shoes for the past few days!

OK, I'm getting super confused.

 

Is the crux of this big change, that you will still receive emails (but only if you enable the forwarding), and will no longer be able to send emails?

 

You will still be able to access your VF email via web and/or email client (pop3 or imap or both)?

 

What are the consequences of not enabling the forwarding? Complete cutoff from VF email?

 

I have a small hoard of elderly people who are having coronaries over this. And I dont want to put them crook.

My understanding is once they set the forward that's it no access once it is running.

 

- Help them move emails manually now so they are not lost

 

- Help them decide if want to a) use same mail program or b) use Gmail/Outlook on a webpage.

 

- Set forward for them 

 

- Go back when its working and setup email (for new account if not gmail)

 

How I am dealing with all my IHUG friends and family.

With forwarding in place, you can continue to send using your Vodafone address via another service, and replies would be forwarded to you. You just won't be able to send through the Vodafone servers. Depending on how the SPF records are set up, sending through other servers using these addresses may result in messages incorrectly being flagged as spam.

Neither.

You won't receive the e-mail. Exactly what happens to it is implementation dependent, but hopefully they will reject early in the SMTP session (rcpt to), which will give the best chance of senders receiving a notification that the message is undeliverable.

@sirhumphreyappleby

 

with regard to point 2, You will still be able to access your VF email via web and/or email client (pop3 or imap or both)?

 

You say neither.

 

Is that after enabling forwarding  or after Nov 30?

Access to POP/IMAP will be disabled after November 30. Once forwarding is enabled, you shouldn't receive any new e-mail to the mailbox, but I expect you would still have access to the POP/IMAP until they are shut down en masse. Vodafone will need to clarify, but I doubt they'd remove access to POP/IMAP when forwarding was enabled as the two usually co-exist.

@kiwifidget

 

Thanks for the questions

 

Is the crux of this big change, that you will still receive emails (but only if you enable the forwarding), and will no longer be able to send emails?

 

You will only receive emails to your old Vodafone email address if you enable forwarding. You will not be able to send emails from the old Vodafone address.

 

You will still be able to access your VF email via web and/or email client (pop3 or imap or both)?

 

For your Vodafone email address - neither.  

 

What are the consequences of not enabling the forwarding? Complete cutoff from VF email?

 

Correct, we will assume the email address is no longer required and delete it.

 

I have a small hoard of elderly people who are having coronaries over this. And I dont want to put them crook.

 

Absolutely don't want that, I'll help you (and them) as much as you need.
