How to add a Westnet email address

You may have up to 9 additional Westnet mailboxes at no extra cost (NBN™ services may allow up to 19 additional mailboxes). Beyond that, additional mailboxes may be purchased for an annual fee of $25 - just call our friendly Sales Team on 13 19 60.

    Email address: Your desired email address (do not include the “@westnet.com.au”)
