Transfer Optus email address to another Optus account

Hi there. 

I currently have a 'child' email address on my parent OptusNet account. 

I wish to transfer this address to another OptusNet account.  

Reason I am doing this, I need to close my OptusNet broadband account - and was hoping to retain my email address my transferring it to my Dad's OptusNet account. 

How would I go about doing this?

Re: Transfer Optus email address to another Optus account

You'll need to contact Optus directly.

But do yourself a favour and get a non RSP based email address. GMAIL is pretty good. You can transfer in all your Optus emails in minutes. Then just update your contacts (banks, people, utilities, etc.) with your new address. This works best while you can still access your optus email as you can see any stragglers.

At this stage you're just kicking the can down the road and needing your Dad to keep paying Optus forever.

Note that GMail has much better spam filtering, security, space, recovery, features, etc. and it works with every RSP, not just Optus.
