Please note that your Mailbox USERNAME for email accounts setup after March 08, is YOUR FULL EMAIL ADDRESS (eg. name@yourdomain.co.nz). If you setup your email account in the control panel prior to March 08, your email address is using the old email system, and is called a 'Legacy Email' account, where it will have a set username. You can find your username in your hosting control panel by logging into http://www.controlpanel.co.nz/ . You can also UPGRADE your old 'Legacy Email Account', by following the instructions here.
