On July 29th, we sent you a notification that we were discontinuing all e-mail services for the @cal.net, @sierra-mail.com and @directcon.net accounts, effective January 20th, 2015. After hearing the concerns that many of you voiced, we have concluded that we had been a bit too extreme in our zeal to cut our e-mail costs so that we could focus on delivering the best quality Internet connectivity services. Accordingly, we have revised our policy to accommodate your needs.
We will now allow you to keep any of your e-mail addresses you have with us. However, beginning February 1st, 2015, for each e-mail address that you have retained, we will assess a monthly fee of $4.58. If you are currently paying for an e-mail service with us at a higher rate, we will lower your rate to match the $4.58 amount.
If you do not wish to pay for your e-mail account with us beginning next February, we encourage you to proceed with any transition to any other e-mail service provider that you may have already considered. As a reminder, we have compiled a number of tutorials explaining how to set up and use a new GMail account – please visit the Cal.net Support Page Moving from @cal.net email to GMail
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience and misunderstanding that this may have caused you. Feel free to contact us by phone or e-mail if you have any questions.We have compiled a number of tutorials explaining how to set up and use a new GMail account
