StarHub and E-mail

Postby Dolph » Thu, 15 Feb 2007 3:38 pm

I just moved to Singapore and have set up a StarHub broadband internet connection. But it turns out that you don't actually get an e-mail account with that - argh! How do I get that? Is there some way I can get that with SingTel instead? I don't want to only use internet-based e-mail. Advice very much appreciated! :)

Starhub "sells" that service separately. Something like 22 bucks a year - called i-mail. See their website.

Cheers, DimWit Kid. What a rip-off! I sorted something else out.
