A big thank you to all our customers who have requested new features and upgrades to our WebMail service, we know that our WebMail system is critical to many of you and we have been working on a major upgrade for some time. Thanks to you, our WebMail service is better than ever!
Our new WebMail is even easier to use, is faster to display messages and works in a wide range of web browsers with many advanced features. Some of the great new features include:
New Folder Support
Our updated WebMail system allows you to create as many folders as you need to easily store and organise your mail. You can store up to 100 MB of mail in your folders.
This handy feature allows you to manage appointments (tasks) on a quarterly, annual, or daily basis.
Microsoft Outlook can be synchronized with your WebMail account so that contacts and scheduler data can be shared between a desktop and WebMail client. If a user adds a new appointment (task) or contact while using Outlook or WebMail, the data will be automatically synchronised between the applications.
Enhanced Address Book
WebMail’s enhanced address book functionality allows you to import and export contacts from/to CSV (comma separated values) file format. You can also sync your WebMail account with your existing address-books.
Spell check your email before sending it using the built in spell checker with a new and updated language database.
Mailbox Sorting & Searching
Messages contained in your Inbox can be sorted by subject, date, or email address. You can search your mailbox for keywords, allowing quick and easy access to your stored email.
Rich HTML Messages
Create eye-catching emails using different fonts and colours or by embedding pictures and sounds. Why not add your company logo or a customised signature? You can easily attach files to your emails to send to friends, family or colleagues.
Create rules to move specific messages or block unwanted senders altogether. Along with the new features we have also implemented a new hardware platform for the WebMail system to operate on. This uses state-of-the-art hardware load balancers to distribute traffic to our to our cluster of WebMail servers. Your messages are centrally stored on giant disk arrays and backed up each day, first to another disk array and then to tape which is stored offsite.
