Vodafone New Zealand is alerting customers that their Vodafone email accounts will be closed on November 30 with a free auto-forwarding service available.
Matt Williams, Vodafone NZ consumer director says, “Since we launched our email service in the 1990s, email and technology have grown up a lot and our customers have told us their email service is no longer delivering the sort of experience our customers need today.
“We’ve made the decision to close the service down and connect customers who need a hand setting up a new account to the email experts, Google Gmail and Microsoft Outlook,” says Williams.
For customers who are keen to still receive the emails sent to their old account, Vodafone will offer a free auto forwarding service so all their emails can be sent to their alternative address.
Many Vodafone email customers already have alternative web-based email services with greater functionality such as Gmail and Outlook which make email easy, secure and efficient.
Customers get lots of storage space, less spam, fast search and access to an ever growing list of additional services.
All Vodafone email customers will receive an email with the news of the closure, support around how to set up auto-forwarding and an introduction to Google Gmail and Microsoft Outlook.
