If you use an Orange Email address, this post is for you. Here’s everything you need to know about the closure of Orange Email:
Orange Email will be closed on 31st May 2017. After this date you won’t be able to send or receive any emails with your Orange address, or be able to access emails saved to that account.
If you have important emails saved in your Orange Email inbox, you’ll need to send these to an alternative email address. And if you use your Orange Email as the contact address for other services, you’ll need to give these services an alternative address.
Years ago, we’d give all new Orange customers a free email address – as did many other providers at the time. These days, there’s a huge variety of free email providers – the likes of Google, Hotmail and so on – that offer a far more advanced service than Orange Email was set up to provide.
We’ve not given an Orange Email address to new customers since 2012, and with a declining number of users it makes sense to close the service. It means you’ll be able to switch to an email provider with more benefits and better features.
These are the email addresses we’ll be closing on 31st May:
Find out more about who’s affected by the closure, and what you need to do ahead of 31st May.
