Problems with sending and receiving emails in OpusNet can have several reasons. We have listed the possible causes and associated solutions below. Please note that receiving problems can also be caused by the sender of the email. Contacting the OptusNet customer care is a good option
You can indeed access the OptusNet email. You can do that either through the Optus Website or through other kinds of applications such as Thunderbird,Outlook, or Mac Mail. In case you’re facing trouble receiving or sending emails, then check the first following:
Try browsing the internet and find if your internet connection is working or not.
If you can’t connect to the internet, then check for the known outage
Restart the device/computer/modems (For the modems’ power-up post 60 seconds, allow two minutes for that modem to settle down into the stable pattern)
Make checks that you have not exceeded the mailbox limits
In case you cannot connect to the internet, then refer to relevant troubleshooting guides.
