Additional Mailbox

Additional Mailbox

The Additional Mailbox service allows the creation of completely separate mailboxes from the one supplied when joining Asahi Net (the one based on your User ID). A mailbox ID and password will be supplied for each additional mailbox; this ID and password cannot be used to connect to the Internet.

Charges

All charges shown include tax.

Start-up charge 220 yen
  • The start-up charge will be applied in the month in which the application for an additional mailbox is made, and monthly charges will start from the month following the month in which the application is made.

  • Up to 5 Additional Mailboxes are available for free for users of a au Hikari Course.
  • Users of the High-Speed Mobile (Xi & FOMA) Course will be charged a monthly charge for all Additional Mailboxes registered.
  • Users of other connection Courses will have the monthly charge waived for the first Additional Mailbox registered.

Important notes

  • This optional service can only be used as an additional to internet connection services. You cannot apply for this optional service by itself.

  • The additional mailbox ID has a different format to the User ID supplied with your ASAHI Net account. Additional mailbox IDs have the format M9999MM999M, ie. an 11-digit ID with the leading character an "M" and other characters a combination of letters and numbers.

  • As with the default mailbox, members can configure their email client (Outlook, etc.) to send and receive mail from their additional mailbox. Please visit our Configuration Guide for instruction on setting up an email client.

  • It is possible to assign one or more MyMail address to additional mailboxes, however only the first MyMail address assigned is free; second and subsequent MyMail addresses will incur a charge.

  • It is possible to use the "Additional Mailbox ID@asahi-net.or.jp" email address, however a MyMail address is much more attractive and we recommend you register one for your additional mailbox.

  • The MyMail address will have the format:
    yourname@subdomain.email.ne.jp , for example: randy@japan.email.ne.jp

    Yourname: This part can be freely chosen by the member.
    Subdomain: There is a choice of 255 subdomains to choose from for this part.

    Please visit our MyMail Service page for more about that service.
