Firstly, I have done my best to read through the recent vodafone media release regarding the dropping of hosted mail at the end of November:




What I would like a specific answer on please, is if the service from within vodafone red network will also be shutdown at the same time? I can't see any specifics mentioned in the FAQ etc.




We have a lot of networking scanning equipment installed in the field and our customers that use vodafone as an ISP are using to enable email sending from these devices.


If I could please get a straight answer on this, it will help us greatly to prepare in advance for assisting our customers to move to an alternative 'gmail smtp' service etc.




Ps. I tried calling the vodafone helpdesk to ask about it, but since I wasn't a direct customer they seemed uninterested and the person didn't really understand what I was asking.




Many thanks :-)
