Mainstay Releases JustMail(tm)
Private, Web-based Email Client Java Applet
Camarillo, CA, January 25, 1999 – Mainstay today began shipping
JustMail(tm), a private and secure client to access a user’s email
account anytime, anywhere, using only a web browser. JustMail is a
Java applet which is added to a user’s web page on a user’s web site.
A user simply brings up the JustMail page, enters their name and
password and clicks “Connect”. The JustMail email client opens in a
separate window with a display similar to that of popular email
client applications. Users can read their mail and send and receive
messages while continuing to browse the web. JustMail works on any
website that has an email server running at the same IP address as
the HTTP server, and requires no server-side applications, scripts,
CGIs, or plug-ins.
JustMail is ideal for a person who travels and for anyone who uses
more than one computer. For example, a student could access mail on
any computer in a computer lab with no program setup. JustMail is not
an email service but rather utilizes an existing email account. This
approach results in increased privacy and security when compared to
web-based email services. No questions are ever asked about the
user’s personal information, and email names and passwords are never
stored or entrusted to a third party.
JustMail offers a snappy application-type email interface similar to
popular email applications. There is no page refresh between messages
or any of the other limitations of a clumsy HTML-based interface.
JustMail displays email in a free-floating window, allowing continued
web browsing while reading and sending email. Reading a series of
messages is quickly done by simply selecting from an email message
list or by using the up or down arrow keys. The JustMail applet is
fast and responsive at only 29 KB in size and downloads quickly, even
on relatively slow modems. JustMail works with Windows 95/98/NT,
Macintosh and Unix.
JustMail is available in a free, fully functional, promotional
version which places a self-promotion line at the end of every sent
email. This free, promotional version is available from www.mstay.com
and most popular download sites.
For situations where email is desired without promotional messages, a
commercial version of JustMail is available for $39.95, single user,
and $495 for corporate or educational website site licenses. A
multi-site, commercial license is also available for ISPs and larger
corporations. JustMail can be purchased, with immediate electronic
delivery, at: www.mstay.com. For more information contact Lance
Merker by calling (805) 484-9400, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
