We have been made aware of a plan from Orange to close some of their email account down. If you have one of the affected address (listed below) you need to take action now!
Part of the press release from Orange
Orange Email will close on 31 May 2017. Please see below to find out what this means for you and how to get set up with an alternative email address.
What is Orange Email?
Customers on some legacy Orange Home Broadband and Orange mobile plans were given a free email address. However since then email services are now largely independent, and mostly offered by companies like Google, Yahoo and Microsoft. We haven’t given Orange Email addresses to new customers since 2012.
Why are we closing Orange Email?
Since Orange Email was first introduced, a wide variety of providers have launched offering free email services with more advanced functionality. As a result, the number of Orange Email users has been in decline.
We have therefore decided to close Orange Email on 31 May 2017, so you can move to a better email experience, and we can focus on providing our customers with the best possible products and services.
Which email addresses are affected?
The addresses affected by the closure are:
