Toronto, Ontario --- February 13, 2006
mail2web.com, a world-wide application provider for consumers and businesses and brand of Softcom Technology Consulting Inc., announced today the release of mail2web LIVE, a free email and messaging service based on Microsoft® Exchange 2003. This new service will provide users a personal email account on mail2web.com, accessible through a web-based interface developed by Microsoft on the world-leading Outlook 2003 email client. mail2web LIVE is available in 26 languages.
mail2web.com, best known for its email retrieval application used by over 14 million users in over 220 countries, will now offer a free Exchange email account based on the mail2web.com domain. This account includes a personal calendar, contacts, tasks, journal, notes, use of ActiveSync®, as well as native Blackberry support. Users will also benefit from an email collection service that allows them to automatically gather email from other accounts as it arrives. mail2web LIVE also includes automatic anti-SPAM and anti-VIRUS features.
“mail2web LIVE brings together the best of breed in the messaging industry”, said Tony Yustein, CEO of SoftCom Technology Consulting Inc. “By putting together Microsoft’s messaging platform, Blackberry’s synchronization capabilities and our email consolidation expertise, we believe what we have is the best messaging service in the market today.”
Those who require device synchronization can take advantage of Microsoft’s ActiveSync for free, which is currently supported by Internet-enabled Pocket PC or Smartphone devices or can use RIM’s Blackberry device, which automatically syncs emails and other updates between the mail2web LIVE account and the hand-held device as the information changes on either side.
The email aggregation service, included free with mail2web LIVE, allows users to easily list an unlimited number of external email accounts and have the system automatically gather all email sent to those accounts and redirect them to their mail2web.com email account.
“From our analysis we saw that most people have multiple email accounts but don’t want to manage them all”, says Yustein. “We created a solution anyone can use, keep all their legacy email accounts and manage only one account with the assurance that all email will be delivered on time – that’s why we believe mail2web LIVE will be the only email account most consumers will ever need.”
This release complements a suite of free consumer products including a free email retrieval application, a free and unlimited media blogging service, a free Jabber-based chat service that allows users to chat with MSN®, AOL®, YAHOO® and ICQ® users through one account, a free Usenet reader and an online games section.
mail2web LIVE users can also take advantage of the new global ISP product, providing access in over 170 countries with 50,000 Broadband Wi-Fi hotspots including in–flight access on select Boeing flights. The new mail2web LIVE service can be accessed at http://live.mail2web.com
