Talktalk Mail Plus started charging £50 a Year for Email to Non-Talktalk Customers or Ex-Talktalk Customers. Talktalk Mail Plus is a service in which you can use Talktalk Email for your Business. When you are in contract with Talktalk at that time this is totally free. Once you Discontinued Talktalk service after that you have to pay £5 monthly or £50 annual to continue with Talktalk Mail Plus.
Talktalk Mail Plus
In the year 2019 talktalk will start charging for their Talktalk mail plus addresses if you’re no longer a customer of their home broadband service. This also includes email addresses from companies that they have bought out in the past such as pipex.com, homecall.co.uk, lineone.net, onetel.com, screaming.net, tinyonline.co.uk, tinyworld.co.uk, tiscali.co.uk, toucansurf.com, ukgateway.net and worldonline.co.uk.
So if you’ve got a Talktalk email address or any one of those email addresses and you’re no longer a Talktalk broadband customer then you may won’t get this email which says you’ve got to pay for your email address.
If you don’t want to pay for your email address you no longer a TalkTalk broadband customer and you will need to set up a new email address something like a yahoo, Hotmail or Gmail email address or an email address with your current internet provider but you will lose access to your emails from the day that shows you on the email. I understand it depends on your account depends on when they’re going to close it down so everybody state is different.
What is Talktalk mail plus?
I totally understand £50 a year is more amount for a Talktalk mail plus and it’s per email address. If you and other members of your family have got Talktalk email addresses then you have to pay for each email address but let’s say if you’re still a home broadband customer of Talktalk then you won’t have to pay this.
If you do get one of these emails from Talktalk, then it may be that they haven’t associated your email address with your current broadband account ie; you may have left them at some point and rejoined.
In such case, you might need to inform them but if you do get an email and you asked on a home broadband customer then please contact them on 03451720088 that number is included in any call allowances that you have on your telephone or mobile phone.
Talktalk mail plus sign up
If you want to do talktalk mail plus sign up you can create a new email address if you use a server of talktalk for a webmail service then you will lose access to that so bear in mind any folders that you’ve set up you will lose access to so you might need to find a way of saving those details.
one way of doing that would be to download and install Thunderbird on your computer and connected to your TalkTalk account via IMAP and that should download the emails and the folders to your computer and then if you sell any new email account that you’ve might have set up then you have to recreate those folders in the new email account under Thunderbird and then copy your messages from those folders into the folders on the new email address.
Talktalk mail plus Scammer
If you do get an email from anyone and it does ask you to pay some money then obviously I would recommend calling Talktalk customer service rather than acting upon an email because I do imagine that there are going to be many scams out there trying to give over your credit card details to a scammer.
So just to be on the safe side if you do want to pay for the service then give them a call on this number 03451720088 this is their official number. If you want to double-check obviously look for any numbers on any bits of paperwork you might have from them sometimes you might find this an older number or you can go onto their website to talktalk.co.uk and search for their telephone number.
