Thank you. Didn't see that for looking at the TradeMe site.. not for lack of IT knowledge.. have been using computers since the very early 80s.. beta tester for Windows 95 amongst other releases I have tested. While I have a Gmail account I hadn't wanted all my email with them due to their data mining model.
thanks for that but I don't think they care as long as they get their pay and bonus that is what counts. I use to rubbish Spark but I have changed my mine as they had the same problem as Vodafone and were thingking of doing the same thing but didn't instead the fix the problem for their cusomters so Well doe to Spark. I know Vodafone will lose customers over this and I don't think that they care that much about it. I have enjoy my time with them but in November I will be gone as I sign up with them for emails etc not just the internet and phone. Good luck everyone
Regarding your question about whether we should be reducing the price of our packages; Vodafone market and sell fixed broadband and mobile connectivity. Email is not part of our core offering. However, we are entitled to withdraw a service if we provide adequate notice to do so, and this is covered in the terms that govern our agreement.
Vodafone have opted to continue to service our email base with auto-forwarding so there is no need for customers to proactively advise their contacts of their new address - they just won't be accessing their email through our older inbox anymore.
In light of the above, we are not moving to reduce monthly charges based on the changes to our email service.
It's interesting to note that emails from Vodafone staff are hilited in Thunderbird as Possible Scams!!!!
