I have the free Orcon email that I had when I was with them about 5 years ago and still use it as my primary email address, there 'free for life' email has only 10mb limit, so don't know what happens to emails when you go over?.

I recieved my Orcon email fine as per-usual today, but will move all over to Google in time and not use ISP email at all. I had $36 credit with them when I finished up which they were asked to credit and 2-3 months later it was gone and I couldn't be bothered with them anymore.

Did you previously download them via a pop connection, which may have deleted them off the server? Some email accounts aren't a permanent storage place for emails, as they have small diskspace allowances.

Hi again,
You should be able to see all your mail now.
Sorry - we are in the process of migrating mailboxes onto new mail stores - and it won't have been visible due to a small lag in the syncing. 
Cheers!
