NutshellMail is not a work-around solution, but a service that works within the frameworks of corporate firewall systems and IT policies.
Houston, TX (PRWEB) December 11, 2008
Nutshell Mail, Inc. (http://www.NutshellMail.com), presents the beta release of its free email and social networking aggregation service at The Rice Alliance for Technology and Entrepreneurship IT and Web 2.0 Venture Forum.
NutshellMail Eliminates Inbox Overload:
NutshellMail is a free service that transforms any email account into an aggregated inbox. The Company's patent-pending technology enables users to efficiently access, manage, and monitor messages from multiple email and social networking accounts through their most commonly used inbox. Additionally, NutshellMail is designed to provide a compliant and secure way for employees to access personal messages when restricted from webmail sites in the workplace.
NutshellMail works by sending recurring email Updates to any designated email address on a user-defined schedule. Each Update provides a snapshot of new messages sent across all user accounts. Through the Update a user can retrieve any message into their designated email account or directly access any account provider's website. NutshellMail also provides a web-based inbox for users to access all their accounts in a single interface.
NutshellMail Is Compliant With Most Corporate Policies:
In order to comply with government regulations and IT security best practices, many companies restrict access to third-party messaging sites. NutshellMail is compliant with most corporate policies because all NutshellMail Updates and messages retrieved through the Update are received like any other email message and must therefore pass through internal email servers. Consequently, NutshellMail provides a compliant and transparent way for employees to access personal messages.
From The Founders:
"We created NutshellMail because we wanted a better way to keep track of our own accounts," said Mark Schmulen, co-founder of NutshellMail. "Distinguishing itself from other aggregation services, NutshellMail works through any inbox you already use and offers a compliant way to access personal messages in the workplace."
Managing multiple email and social networking accounts is a universal problem; however, employees who are restricted from accessing third-party messaging accounts will truly value the service's corporate-compliant solution. According to co-founder David Lyman, "NutshellMail is not a work-around solution, but a service that works within the frameworks of corporate firewall systems and IT policies." In addition, parents may use NutshellMail to monitor incoming messages into their young children's accounts. According to Schmulen, "At its core, NutshellMail is a productivity tool that adds value by simply reminding users that they have new messages in accounts that may go unchecked for days."
Based in Houston, TX, Nutshell Mail, Inc. develops online communication productivity software. The Company owns and operates NutshellMail.com, a service that provides a productive and corporate-compliant way to access, manage, and monitor messages from multiple email and social networking accounts by transforming any email account into an aggregated inbox.
