BLACKSBURG, Va. (PRWEB) May 22, 2007
Webmail.us, a leading provider of email hosting services to more than 45,000 small, medium, and geographically dispersed businesses, today announced the launch of its email marketing service, a service that allows customers to send opt-in email newsletters to large groups. Email newsletters can be used to send vital communications to customers, subscribers, or others who wish to receive the communications.
By employing eight years of experience in the email services industry, Webmail.us has designed this service to help customers use email to communicate more effectively with large groups of recipients, achieve the highest possible delivery rates, easily manage email campaigns, and track the effectiveness of those campaigns. More importantly, customers are now able to communicate directly with large groups while remaining compliant with industry anti-spam regulations. In fact, the company recently joined the Email Sender and Provider Coalition (ESPC), a group that was formed to fight spam while protecting the delivery of legitimate email. "We are pleased that Webmail.us has joined ESPC and our mission to combat spam while protecting legitimate email by following best practices and adhering to emerging technology standards," state James Campbell, Assistant Director of the ESPC, "and we look forward to working with them to promote these practices with other large senders and receivers."
"We decided to develop an email newsletter service because our customers have asked us for the ability to communicate in bulk with their customers, via email," said Pat Matthews, chief executive officer of Webmail.us. "And it is essential that we help them accomplish their goals while employing best email practices and staying compliant with CAN-SPAM and other industry regulations."
Embedded into the system are compliance management features, including one-click unsubscribe capabilities, protection against spammers using the system to send unsolicited bulk email, and the ongoing management of relationships with Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to make sure distributed emails do not end up in spam folders or on blacklists. The system has also been deployed in an infrastructure environment that is physically separate from where the company's email hosting customers are hosted, in order for deliverability rates and IP addresses for the two systems to be independent of one another.
"Email newsletters are a vital form of communication for our customers," said Matthews. "When our customers send an email they need to know it's going to be delivered. We make sending email easy and safe."
Webmail.us has been experiencing rapid growth, adding more than 15,000 businesses to its email hosting system in the last four months.
