BLACKSBURG, Va. (PRWEB) August 9, 2005
Webmail.us, the leading provider of email hosting services to small and geographically dispersed businesses, today unveiled its beta version of Webmail Lite, a free web-based aggregator that allows users to setup and manage third party email accounts and RSS feeds through an extension of the companyÂs webmail interface. Webmail Lite is designed for email users that need anytime, anywhere access to their email, RSS feeds and address book data, but lack a professional webmail interface. Unlike most free online services, Webmail Lite is supported by Webmail.us and does not contain third party advertisements.
ÂThe perfect user for this application is the small business employee who runs their own POP or IMAP server but lacks a good Webmail interface,Â said Kevin Minnick, vice president of product development for Webmail.us. ÂThe user may use Outlook or Thunderbird in the office, but may lack access to their email when on the road, in a coffee shop, or even at home. Webmail Lite provides users with anywhere access to their email and RSS feeds. We also envision ISPs offering this to their users as most ISPs donÂt put much R&D into webmail themselves.Â
The company is close to announcing the launch of its RSS reader for its email hosting customers. ÂCombining RSS and email lowers the technology learning curve,Â said Pat Matthews, chief executive officer at Webmail.us. ÂPeople know how to use emailÂnow they will know how to use RSS, sometimes without even realizing it.Â
Webmail Lite offers several powerful features, is completely free and contains no third party advertisements. Features include:
- IMAP and POP Support of third party email accounts
- Web-based RSS Reader
- One-click access to all of your email accounts including Gmail, Yahoo, etc.
- Address Book entries span all your accounts.
- Account Options span all your accounts.
- SSL Support for extra security
