    Ausfish Email no longer free

    Hi, recently when I logged into my ausfish email account there was and still is a message that Everyone net is no longer hosting free email and you now have to subscribe. It states that I will be completely locked out on the 23rd of feb. As this is my primary email and pretty much all emails come to here I figured that I would at least try to find out cost of subscription..I shouls add this message is the header in the front page at login not an email recieved.
    I clicked to subscribe but am told my account is not eligible for upgrade? so this means I have try to set up new email elsewhere,contact every bussiness gov department. friends contacts etc I deal with and I have no doubt I will miss plenty .
    I totally understand ausfish themselves do not host the email service and as such its not really their issue however I would like to know is this a scam? why does there seem to be no information about this? Am I the only one who uses ausfish as their primary email? help plase. Any information would be greatly appreciated

    Cheers Craig

    Hi

    Yes, unfortunately after all these years they will no longer offer free email.

    As the notice says, you will no longer be able to reply to email after Feb 23rd. You will be able to read your email until March 23rd.

    If you require I can put in a redirect for you from your current Ausfish email to your new email.

    Please supply me with the following via Private Message if you wish to do so

    Name:
    Ausfish Email: @ausfish.com.au
    New Email:

    Unfortunately this is a problem that won't go away, did you know that if you had an email provided by your Telco that it ceases to exist if you decide to change providers. Also you will have troubles replying to emails if you travel overseas, it is rather convoluted to explain but get yourself a Web hosted email.

    Can't talk about other telcos but if with BigPond and leave you can pay a fee, I think about $50 per year to retain your BigPond email address, as long as you have at least one Telstra service.

    That is the issue, you must be a customer of theirs. I keep my Telco email for giving out to those organisations that require one where I am pretty sure I'm going to get a lot of advertising or spam as a rssult and use another for my friends and relatives.

    Get a gmail account and you can change telcos and take it with you. For now who knows what other revenue streams they will look at down the track.
