I'm looking for some answers that aren't (at least with my initial searching) obviously available on the TELUS website.
My questions concern the upgrade to "TELUS E-mail Powered by Google" at: https://www.telus.com/en/ab/support/article/faq-telus-email-migration
I'm wondering about how the upgraded e-mail works with Outlook 2013, Outlook 2016 and with the Mail app on iOS devices. The prompt for the 'upgrade' seems to occur when one logs in via webmail.
- If one never uses Webmail (I don’t use Webmail at all as I use Outlook on my computer and the Apple Mail app on my iPhone), do I still need to do the e-mail upgrade?
- I’m assuming that I do still need to do the upgrade (I’m thinking the TELUS servers will go away at some point!) but I wanted to make sure.
- Will I get an e-mail notice of the requirement to do an upgrade or should I just start this upgrade process myself?
- When the e-mail is upgraded are the Outlook settings still the same as on the TELUS webpage? The reason I ask is that these look exactly like the current settings that are for the TELUS hosted e-mail (unless the Google based ones are identical):
Has anyone gone through this experience recently? Any comments or suggestions?
Thanks in advance for your assistance with this.
You're looking at the wrong section of the support site. On the left column, look down for "TELUS.net powered by Google"
