Additional iiNet Email Addresses

This article will show you how to add or remove an additional iiNet email address (mailbox with the “@iinet.net.au” domain) in Toolbox.

If you've never logged into Toolbox before, please see An Introduction to Toolbox.

Please note

  • If you have a broadband service with iiNet, you'll have one email address that doubles as your broadband username and your primary Toolbox login username. You may have up to 9 additional iiNet mailboxes at no extra cost (NBN™ services may allow up to 19 additional mailboxes).
  • If you only have Mobile Voice with us, then you'll have just one email address that doubles as your primary Toolbox login username.
  • Beyond that, additional mailboxes may be purchased for an annual fee of $25 - just call our friendly Sales Team on 13 19 17.

Select one of the links below to jump to a query:

  1. Log in to Toolbox and select My Products from the navigation bar. If you're on a mobile device and you don't see this option, click the grey square with three lines to show the navigation menu.
     
  2. Select Email and then select Add/remove a mailbox from the Actions menu. If you're on a mobile device and you don't see the Actions menu, tap the grey bar labelled Email actions to show it.

  4. This will bring up a form. You’ll need to scroll down the page and fill in the following:

    Service: Select the internet service the email address will be attached to
    Full name: The name of the person who will be using the email address
    Email address: Your desired email address (do not include the “@iinet.net.au”)
    Password: Enter a password that fits our password policy
    Confirm password: Enter your password again
     

  5. Once you’re done, click Create Mailbox to finish. It may take up to 2 hours before your email address can start sending and receiving email. In the meantime, you may find these setup guides helpful, or you may prefer to access your emails using iiNet Webmail.
     
  6. We recommend that you send a test email to your new email address using a different email account, or ask a friend to email you. Once you receive this test email, you know your mailbox is up and running.
     
  7. IMPORTANT: Additional mailboxes do not have the same account permissions as your primary Toolbox login username. If you log into Toolbox with the username and password of an additional mailbox, you won't have access to most features including invoices, payments, usage history, broadband details and account details. This allows you give an additional email address to a child or housemate without giving them access to change anything on your account.

 

  1. You can’t delete a mailbox that is also the username for an internet service. If you wish to change a username, please call us on 13 22 58. However, you may delete additional mailboxes.

    Please note: Be sure to back up any important emails before deleting a mailbox as they cannot be recovered.
     

  2. Log in to Toolbox and select My Products from the navigation bar. If you're on a mobile device and you don't see this option, click the grey square with three lines to show the navigation menu.
     
  3. Select Email and then select Add/remove a mailbox from the Actions menu. If you're on a mobile device and you don't see the Actions menu, click the grey bar labelled Email actions to show it.
