Subject: UKNM: free web-based email
From: John Braithwaite
Date: Tue, 7 Dec 1999 19:13:34 GMT

Firstly - Ray, thanks for the tips. I am poised to make my first million!

Secondly - The free web-based email that really caught my eye was something
offered by Net Benefit (but under-marketed I feel!). You buy a domain name,
say www.braithwaite.com (although this one is taken, unfortunately) and you
create an email address. ie. johnatbraithwaite [dot] com. This is your email
address for life.

You have about three different mailboxes - one at work, one at home and one,
say, for holidays (hotmail, yahoo etc.). You can repoint with about a couple
of minutes work any mail going to johnatbraithwaite [dot] com to any of your
mailboxes by visiting the site and changing the re-direct to email address.
Also, you can add as many email addresses as you want. For example:
daveatbraithwaite [dot] com etc.

However this service is currently charged at the (ridiculous) rate of 15
per month. It wouldn't be a service that Hotmail or Yahoo would want - why?
Because it won't get 'em coming back to the site every time they want to
check their in-box. However (you'll be delighted with this suggestion, Ray!)
on a forwarding the company concerned could stick a banner/promotion in the
email. Also, by profiling the customer on signing up, the customer would
opt-in to receive emails etc.

Anyone else out there offer this product?

Cheers


John
