Hi,
One last main question before switching providers. I would contact Slingshot support about this, however they still havn't replied to the first message I sent them (making me somewhat dubious actually).

The main email address I use is still on my parents old iHug/Vodafone account, and I was wondering if I can access the POP and SMTP servers from a Slingshot nDSL connection. I know that some ISP's block email access to other providers.

Thanks.

Awesome. Any idea when I'm going to hear back from the customer service centre? I sent in a question via the website about 8 days ago, and I got an auto response saying I would hear back within 48 hours.

You will be able to contact the Vodafone NZ POP server no issue but not sure why you need the smtp server access

Yeah now that I think of it, you can send from any SMTP account that you have a password with, and just ensure the "reply to" field has the correct address on it.
