Have you obtained a recent alert, either recommending that your Telstra email service will change, or that it has ALREADY altered?
My own little girl discovered that her email unexpectedly stopped working the other day due to this Telstra modification (which she had actually been encouraged a couple of weeks ago would certainly be taking place soon).
She immediately called me yesterday to figure out what to do - and also I figure many various other iTandCoffee clients will certainly soon be asking the very same question.
The photo here reveals the e-mail that my daughter obtained from Telstra yesterday.
So, what does this change mean?
For my child and also several other people, it is essential to do some setup and adjustment of settings on your device/s as soon as Telstra makes the modification to your e-mail.
For other people, Telstra encourages that no adjustment is necessary - but you might desire to make some adjustments if you wish to benefit from improvements offered by the brand-new post.
Let's consider this in even more detail.
The good news
If you have an email address that was set up before about 2012, this email account will have been the old stye of e-mail address referred to as POP that can trigger numerous frustrations.
For example, your POP mail is not synchronised throughout several tools, which implies double (and, maybe, three-way) handling of your emails. Emails you continue reading one tool are not noted at 'check out' on the other. E-mails you delete on one device are not erased on the various other.
With Telstra's old POP style of e-mail account, your Sent mail can just be seen on the tool from which it was sent out.
In addition, POP accounts do not permit you to establish mail folders/mailboxes for submitting your mail, so you can not organise your mail throughout your gadgets similarly that you can with solutions like Gmail as well as iCloud.
You may have likewise discovered that you have difficulty sending out emails when you are not on a Telstra-provided internet connection - specifically overseas.
( More lately produced Telstra email accounts, developed considering that 2012, do not suffer these issues because they are typically Micro-soft Expectation accounts. These more recent accounts are also being migrated to Telstra's new 'Telstra Mail' service, away from the Microsoft system - we'll speak about these int 'The bad news' section below.).
Fortunately for those with these old-style Telstra mail accounts is that brand-new Telstra Mail is a various design of e-mail account that can sustain something called IMAP, and also will certainly solve these concerns for you.
When you connect to your mail account using IMAP, your mail remains in sync in between your devices. mail read on one tool will certainly be marked as kept reading an additional. mail erased on one gadget will go away from the Inbox on other devices. 'Sent' mail will certainly have the ability to be seen from any gadget, and sending out concerns when overseas will go away.
Not only that, you will likewise be able to organise your mail right into your own collection of mail boxes that synchronise across all your devices.
The bad news
The issue that is impacting many Big-pond account holders is that their e-mail quits working after Telstra 'moves them'. This is affecting those clients that had newer, Outlook-hosted Big-pond accounts.
Unfortunately, to continue accessing your e-mail, you need to transform the email arrangement on any tools on which the e-mail account has actually been set up. In my child's instance, adjustments were required to her iPhone, iPad and Mac computer.
In many cases, the Telstra Mail account must be included as a NEW ACCOUNT.
If you have the older POP design of account, the email you receive from Telstra claims that you do not need to do anything. This indicates that your mail should remain to work with all tools without any modifications.
None the less, to take advantage of the brand-new attributes supplied by Telstra Mail (which are defined in 'Fortunately' above), you will certainly have to add your Telstra Mail account as a new account on each gadget.
If you are unsure exactly how to include a brand-new Mail account on your iPad, apple iphone or Mac, fill in the below form and we will certainly send you an iTand Coffee video that gives a tutorial of exactly how to do this.

What do you do with the 'old' version of the Mail account
If you require to add Telstra Mail as a brand-new account, something to think about then is what to do with the 'old' version of the Big-pond mail account.
You might wish to simply remove this account.
Prior to you remove your old variation of the account, there are a couple of points to take into consideration, depending on whether you got on POP or Expectation formerly.
