Pentanet does not currently offer email mailboxes. Right now, our focus is on delivering high quality and great value internet services with no frills or add-ons.
For basic hassle-free home use, we recommend users make the switch to a free Gmail or Outlook mailbox. These have many benefits over the basic mailboxes traditionally supplied by ISPs.
If you have an existing Telstra or Bigpond email service who would like to keep that mailbox and access that mailbox from a Pentanet service, then we recommend making sure that your email client is configured per Telstra/Bigpond’s instructions:
