Grapevine offers five levels of support services to customers:
- Account manager
- Email support
- Phone support
In order to provide equal opportunity for all customers, we ask that you make any account changes online using the account manager service. We ask that if the enquiry is not urgent, that you use the technical support form or email support.
1. Account manager
The Grapevine account manager allows you to:
- monitor your usage
- view your time online
- view your mailbox disk quota
- change your dial-up password
- change the disk quota allocated to your mailbox.
Access Account manager.
Note: your account manager user name and password is the same user name and password you use to connect to the internet.
A useful tip
If you are using a Windows operating system and have two windows open at the same time, by pressing the Alt and Tab buttons on your keyboard at the same time, you can switch between open windows on your computer.
This is particularly helpful if you have the Account manager open in one window and help open in another, as it allows you to switch between the Account manager window and the help window, so that you can use the Account manager service with help.
Grapevine guides include step-by-step instructions on how to set up internet connections and applications such as email and web pages.
Access the guides.
3. Email support
To help us provide efficient assistance, we ask that wherever possible you use the technical assistance form. This form will assist us give you the information required to help you with your enquiry.

Our email response targets are:
- next business day for a response to your initial email
