TPG email addresses are moving to The Messaging Company

Table of Contents

TPG has made the decision to stop providing email services. This change will help us focus on creating better experiences for our core products: internet and mobile.

You can opt-in to transfer your TPG email address to another Australian email provider, The Messaging Company. The Messaging Company will become your email provider and most importantly, you will not lose any emails, contacts or calendar events as part of the transfer.

Important: Your internet and My Account login details will not be affected by this change.
