Is there any way for them to get a paid address in the eyes of NZDating?

 

I personally think its stupid people block based on people using Gmail etc, like wtf. Ive never used an ISP email address myself.

 

But anyway, how do they go about this given bigpipe dont give email addies with your account?

http://mail.surf.co.nz/email/scripts/loginuser.pl Maybe try something like that, But I wouldnt use it for much more than spam.
WINZ reckons yopu should use Hotmail, Yahoo or Gmail.
Ask NZDating what their whitelist is?
Use Tinder, Grindr, Bumble or just put him in Ponsonby on a Friday at 3AM so he can clean up the mess left over.

I've hit a few sites lately that don't accept my personal domain.  PITA but thankfully have plenty of alternatives.

I'm pretty sure I signed up with a hotmail address.  They've probably changed their requirements.

 

Try mail.com as a throwaway address.  It's Yahoo based, but IIRC they did allow you to choose from a wide variety of email address domains that might get you past the NZ Dating filter.

 

Man.  All those poor vodafone customers who won't be able to use internet dating anymore...

So he can sign up but is not having much luck with them birds due to him not having a .co.nz address?

Lol id be killed if it was me using it.

 

No Ive seen it, you try to email someone and it says, "this person has chosen not to receive messages from free email addresses blah blah"

Hes done Tinder, supposedly too random, you cant search etc, you just gotta hope the person randomly hits the button to like you as well, so you cant be selective.
