Wellington, Sept. 11 (ANI): Yahoo is reportedly moving Telecom's 4, 50,000 email accounts from the troubled site, Xtra to Yahoo's main email platform.
Xtra, a joint venture web portal between Telecom and Yahoo, has been plagued by problems since 2007.
Telecom retail boss Chris Quin had earlier said that he was confident Xtra would be more reliable once Yahoo switched the service to its standard platform.
Spokeswoman for Xtra, Lucy Fullarton said that the migration of accounts was now underway and would be completed gradually over a few months, stuff.co.nz reports.
According to the report, Xtra suffered five outages last year and the latest glitches on Monday saw some customers unable to send and receive emails using clients such as Microsoft Outlook and were forced to use webmail instead.
The report added that Telecom had seriously considered stopping providing email altogether before opting for an improved service from Yahoo. (ANI)
