I certainly won't be using Gmail or Outlook as they are full of spam and advertising. I have not had any spam with my Vodafone account, only with my Clear account which happened about a year ago, so obviously Vodafone dropped its filtering on Clear about that time and all the rubbish got through so I stopped using that email address. I don't want either Gmail or Outlook, so what is Vodafone suggesting? I have only stayed with Vodafone because of their email service. What is the Xnet mail service that Vodafone has and can that be joined, otherwise I will have to look for a new provider that offers an email service. I and others are totally inconvenienced by Vodafone and think they have certainly not considered the ramifications of dropping email. I am sure it is going to cost them more in loss of accounts than what it would cost to upgrade their email server. Any serious email user steers well clear of Gmail and Outlook, so Vodafone should have researched this more carefully.

I certainly won't be accepting Vodafone's forwarding email service because they will only forward on spam if their email service as antiquated as they say.

Well, if the forwarded email can be filtered why isn't it being filtered now? In fact I do not get spam email with Vodafone so I certainly don't believe the reason given for shutting down their email service.

Forwarded email will be filtered in and out, though out is irrelevant really.

which leads to
which has "

at the bottom of the page.
So it appears that vodafone can supply spam free email service. They just don't want to

I'm planning to use something like Google's G-Suite, as I have my own domain name, currently hosted by Clear/Vodafone.
I'm running into issues, though, as Google want me to prove that I own the DNS (or verify the domain) by going into the homepage and adding a metatag.
I don;'t have a homepage, so not sure how to proceed.
Mike Hales, you able to help, or anyone else?
Any help greatly and gratefully appreciated!
