TPG/iiNet/Internode/Westnet will jettison its email users

TPG/iiNet/Internode/Westnet will jettison its email users, offering them the option of a transfer to ‘The Messaging Company’ free until 15 September 2024. If you take up the option, you can keep your email address, contacts, and calendar.

We are not aware if this affects Vodafone users (checking). With little to no notice, TPG posted this link. “TPG has decided to stop providing email services. This change will help us focus on creating better experiences for our core products: internet and mobile.”

 But, as we quote, “TPG does not have information on The Messaging Company email pricing … It will be able to provide you with pricing before charges start after the first year.” 

You can read more about what we suggest you do with your TPG email service here.
