Orange to End Email Service

Orange will be ending all email services on the 31st May. Orange customers will not be able to access their email accounts after this date and all emails on the server will be deleted. This will also effect all email accounts set up in third party clients such as Outlook, Windows Live Mail and the Windows 10 Mail App.

All email addresses ending in the following will stop working:

  • Orange.net
  • Orangehome.co.uk
  • Wanadoo.co.uk
  • Freeserve.co.uk
  • Fsbusiness.co.uk
  • Fslife.co.uk
  • Fsmail.net
  • Fsworld.co.uk
  • Fsnet.co.uk

Orange do offer a guide to transfer your email to a Gmail account, but they do not mention the limitations or explain that in fact the process can be problematic and more difficult than it appears. Unfortunately, you can only transfer email from the top level of your Orange Inbox – not from sub folders or your sent items. There is also a separate operation to transfer over your Orange contact list and import that into Gmail.

If you experience any problems with the migration of your Orange email account to Gmail or would like us to do this for you then please call us on 01883 330 333.
