BIGMAILBOX.COM REDEFINES WEB-BASED EMAIL
Webmasters can now offer free email services at their site
BEVERLY HILLS, California (April 28, 1999) BIGMAILBOX.COM,INC.
(www.bigmailbox.com) is the first free Web-based email service to
enable Web site owners (Webmasters) to offer free Web-based email
accounts to their visitors. The great bonus to the Webmaster is that
the members email address includes the Web sites vanity domain
name (e.g., member@WebmastersDomainName.com). BigMailBox accounts
can be quickly and seamlessly integrated into any Web site thanks to
24-hour customer support and special customization features. All
Webmasters who sign up for a BigMailBox account receive 20% of the
advertising inventory. In addition, Webmasters receive banner
tracking information and ad server software. BigMailBox empowers
individuals and businesses of any size to offer free Web-based email
at their Web sites.
According to an eMarketer's report, 94% of people accessing the Web
do so at least partially to send and receive emails. In a similar
study GVU estimates that 32% of the Web population use email as a
navigation tool. These statistics vividly portray the enormous
potential of email as a medium for communication and direct marketing
on the Internet.
The word-of-mouth response to BIGMAILBOX has been tremendous! We are
very pleased that our clients have recognized our commitment to
superior customer service and are looking forward to continuing with
our goal of giving every Webmaster on the Internet a BigMailBox
account! said Rob Walther, spokesperson for BigMailBox.
Benefits to Webmasters
BigMailBox gives Webmasters the opportunity to build brand name
recognition while generating advertising revenue; Webmasters also
build a valid member mailing list. Repeat traffic and enhanced
domain name branding is created as members return each day to check
their email box. Webmasters control the customizable signature line
of all outbound emails sent through their BigMailBox account,
creating a powerful Internet navigation tool. Additionally,
Webmasters learn how to fully utilize the marketing capabilities of
BigMailBox by visiting the Webmaster Forum, a chat room where other
Webmasters meet to share their ideas. Remarkably, the service is free
to the Webmaster as well as the user/member. BigMailBoxs closest
competitor charges $25,000 for a similar service.
Benefits to Consumers
BigMailBox offers users the ability to have a permanent Web-based
email address for business or personal use. Members can choose a
secure email address from thousands of domains that are currently
using the BigMailBox service. In addition, this free service allows
members to access their email accounts from anywhere in the world
without having to reconfigure their computer settings. Even more
exciting, members can register multiple email vanity addresses to
suit their needs and desires. A powerful mail notification tool will
quickly notify them at their primary email address that they have
mail to pick up.
BigMailBox offers all of the best email features of Hotmail (MSFT),
Critical Path (CPTH), Message Media (MESG) and Yahoo Mail (YHOO). All
BigMailBox accounts are hosted at Alchemy Communications
(Exodus-EXDS), (AboveNet-ABOV), a state of the art collocation
