It is frequent and common that we use email from Google, Outlook or other services such as Yahoo! But surely you have heard of Wanadoo, Mixmail or other of the many emails from Orange that we can access directly from their website. For this reason, we explain what Orange mail is , what it offers, how to access it or what are all the domains that exist.
The first thing we must differentiate is that there are two types of email accounts: those that are created for clients and other accounts that users have been able to do in recent decades and whose access is now directly from the operator’s website.
Accounts for clients
As an Orange customer, you have a free email account with a capacity of up to 1 GB if you don’t want to use Gmail or simply if you want an alternative. You may have had one for years, although currently it is unusual to use an email account from a specific operator compared to other services such as Outlook or Gmail that offer us a more complete suite with more options. Be that as it may, Orange customer mail is intended for the following domains:
You may have all of them because you were a client of these services and you still keep them.
Free email accounts
Orange Mail is not one that has the orange operator but there are many who are associated with it: WorldNet, Mixmail, Wanadoo … To all Accessed from the same website and are services of mail free . That is, we do not need to be clients to access or enjoy an email service, but we can write username and password and enter. There are many and some will sound familiar to you and others are more unknown. Among the domains to choose from are:
Some are especially well known as is the case with Wanadoo, which was a great success in the late nineties as a service provider for France Telecom to connect us and to have our email inbox. Since 2005 Wanadoo no longer exists and you will not find its website but you can access it from Orange.
The same happens with Mixmail, which was originally launched as a Jazztel brand through Ya.com and with a chat that had thousands of users in addition to specific portals. In 2007, Ya.com ceased to exist and Orange bought the company, so to use the Mixmail email you must also go to the operator’s page, write your data and choose the domain in the drop-down menu as we will explain.
To access any of the accounts we do it from the Orange website, whether the one you have is a user or customer or if it is free with any of the services that we have mentioned in the previous section and that you may have since the end of the ninety. In any case, you must go to the website Correo.orange.es and you will see two options: free email access / customer email access. You can also go to the Orange website and tap on the upper right corner of the screen where you will see an icon of a white envelope. When you touch on it you will go. The two are similar and differ in the headline and their colors.
Once we are inside this website we will have to choose which one is ours. If you are a customer, the one on the right in “customer email”. In the drop-down that indicates “choose your domain” you must choose yours, whether you are a free or paid user. Enter your username and password and you will access your inbox.
In the case of accessing from the mobile phone, the process is similar but it is recommended that you open the web mmail.orange.es if you want it to be accessible from the smartphone and with a design adapted to that screen. Once inside, the steps are identical and you can log in with your username and password.
If you are a mobile client, your username is your phone number and also your domain, although you can change it from the mail options menu. That is, your address would be your phone email@example.com and the password remains the same that you use for the customer area, although you can also change or recover it if you have forgotten it. If you have forgotten the password, they explain from the operator, “send a free SMS to 222 with the word CLAVE followed by a space and the password you choose (between 6 and 8 numerical digits), example: CLAVE 123456″.
If you are not a mobile customer but an ADSL or other service or you already have an Orange account for email, you can retrieve the password from the customer area or by accessing the webmail and options and “password change”.
Accounts closed due to inactivity
The first thing we have to be clear about is that perhaps accessing the Orange or Eresmas or Mixmail address is not as easy as remembering your password and going to a specific website where you are going to enter your data. No. It is possible that those accounts are gone, that your emails from twenty years ago have been lost because the accounts have been closed due to inactivity or the service has been unlinked, for example. “We inform you that ORANGE reserves the right to inactivate your email account with prior notice via email, upon detecting a lack of activity in it for a period of more than (60) consecutive calendar days,” they explain from the website of mail support when we look for information about Eresmas email.
The same is the case for other domains such as Wanadoo. It is possible that it has been deactivated if you have not sent or received emails for weeks, months or years and everything has been permanently deleted. If in 90 days you have not received anything, the account will no longer be for you. They explain it from the legal conditions of Orange that we can read in this link. : “ORANGE reserves the right to permanently delete your email account free of charge in the event that it does not present activity, neither sending and / or receiving messages for ninety (90) consecutive calendar days. The aforementioned deletion of your account will mean that all the messages will be deleted, as well as the blocking of it, which will not be able to be used again, losing all rights to the aforementioned account ”, they explain.
These Orange legal conditions apply to all accounts and all domains, both customer and free.
How to configure in a post manager
Whichever one you are going to use, you will not only need your email and password but also the POP3 and STMP that you must fill in depending on the type of account or domain you use. It will depend on the Orange mail that you have to fill in the data. You can use them in any email manager or even on your mobile phone:
Accounts @ orange.es
- Incoming mail (POP3): pop.orange.es
- Outgoing mail (SMTP): smtp.orange.es
- Account name: [full account name (firstname.lastname@example.org)].
Accounts @ wanadoo.es

Help and customer service
If all of the above has not been enough for you to access Orange email or any of the available domains, you can contact customer service or access the thread created in the Orange community to solve these problems. The thread was created in 2014 and it is possible that it is somewhat obsolete but you can find information on how to recover the email password , for example.
In addition, customers can contact through phones or social networks to resolve doubts related to the operator’s email. By phone you can call 1470 for individuals with a free call from any national operator. Or you can contact by WhatsApp through 653 85 00 85 but it must be from an Orange mobile line.
You can also contact through social networks with customer service hours from Monday to Sunday from nine in the morning to eleven at night except national holidays. Both on Twitter and Facebook you can send a private message or DM or write a public message to the operator. We recommend that you do it privately in case you need to provide private or personal data.
