What is an Actrix Free Email Address?
A free Actrix email address such as was provided free with your Actrix Internet connection. This was common practice for Internet Service Providers (ISPs) in the late '90s and 2000s but became less popular as free advertising-supported email services such as Hotmail and Gmail became more widely adopted.
Many NZ ISPs have closed their free email service in recent years due to the cost of operating and supporting the service.
What's changing?
From 1 September 2021, we're making some changes to the Actrix email service:

  • Actrix email accounts will be charged $4.95 inc GST per month, per email account.
  • We've upgraded the spam and virus protection on email accounts
  • We're increasing the mailbox storage by 4x to 1000MB (1GB)
  • Additional storage can be added for $4.95 inc GST per GB, per month

If you are unsure of your password, please call our support team on 0800 477 333 between 8 am and 10 pm 7 days a week to reset your password.
Is the charge per email account or per email message?
For absolute certainty, and to leave no doubt, it is the email account/address that has the charge of $4.95 inc GST per month. You can send and receive as many messages as you like for that single monthly charge.

If you have two email accounts, you will be billed 2 x $4.95, per month.

What other free email options are there?
There's a lot to like about a paid local email service like the service that Voyager offers:

  • NZ Local support with a phone number you can call if you need help
  • No advertising
  • Governed by NZ data privacy laws
  • Your data is local and covered by NZ jurisdiction.

However, you do have options if you wish to have a free email address.
There are a few advertising-supported free email services such as Gmail and but do keep in mind that these services are free because they are supported by advertising. Free email services use your emails and personal data to improve their marketing, they are usually offshore-based with different jurisdictions and they usually do not have a free phone number you can call for support.
Please note that we are not able to assist you with technical support for using or configuring 3rd party free email services like Gmail.
How to change over to using a free email address
While we do not provide technical support for 3rd party free email providers, we have outlined below the general steps you need to take to migrate to a different email address.
If you have signed up to a free email address, you will want to re-create all of your contacts in the new email platform and forward any emails you wish to retain to your new address. Some providers offer a mail import tool to let you import your email from your existing mailbox.
Once you have done this, ask us to forward any new email from your email address through to your new free email address. You will want to keep this in place for a few months, while you update your contacts about your new email address.
You will incur the monthly fee of $4.95 inc GST for as long as the Actrix mailbox and forwarder is still in use.

Can I upgrade the mailbox storage?
Yes! if you want to upgrade your storage space for your current 1GB mailbox, then we have the following upgrade options available:

Storage SpacePrice (exc GST)
2GB$8.65 per month
3GB$13 per month
4GB$17.35 per month
5GB$21.70 per month

I currently pay for a storage upgrade, what happens to that fee?
The new mailbox size will be 1000MB (1GB). This is a 4x increase to the original 250MB mailbox size.
Some customers paid for a mailbox upgrade. If you paid for a mailbox upgrade up to 1GB, you will no longer pay this fee. If you paid for a mailbox over 1GB in size, the charge will be revised to $4.95 + GST per 1GB of storage.
