Vodafone New Zealand has announced that it will be discontinuing its email services on the 30th November. This decision comes after months of problems with high levels of spam and delayed mail.

Vodafone NZ Consumer Director Matt Williams said “Since we launched our email service in the 1990’s, email and technology have grown up a lot and our customers have told us their email service is no longer delivering the sort of experience our customers need today. That’s simply not good enough for us here at Vodafone. We’ve made the decision to close the service down”
