Spymac Launches Free 1 Gigabyte Email Service
April 5, 2004
In response to the growing need for
email storage space, Spymac Network, Inc. announced today a capacity
increase of 1 gigabyte for all of its free member Mail accounts.
New York, NY (PRWEB) April 5, 2004--In response to the growing need
for email storage space, Spymac Network, Inc. announced Friday a
capacity increase for all its free member Mail accounts. One gigabyte
of storage is available to all Spymac Mail accounts, effective today,
Monday April 5, 2004. Spymac Network, Inc. is one of the largest
International Macintosh community web ventures.
It may have been April Fool's Day when the gigabyte news broke at
Spymac, but email is never a joke. Millions of people rely on easy
access to mail and depend on their email service to not
indiscriminately delete important mail. Spymac Mail offers several
advantages over other free Internet-based email. In addition to the
one-gigabyte storage increase, Spymac Mail also offers both POP3 and
Webmail access to the email accounts. Web-based mail works in all
includes banner advertising and 100 MB of web site hosting space, but
a mere $20 (US) a year removes the advertising and adds extra web
space. Presently Spymac's rapidly expanding free mail service supports
almost 50,000 distinct email accounts. For those wondering why on
earth they would need one gigabyte for POP3 mail, don�t despair;
because IMAP mail capabilities are under development and will be
available very soon.
Ilene Hoffman, Spymac Editor and PR contact, and a former AOL user,
notes that it was a problem when her AOL mailbox was cleaned of old
mail. "Due to unsolicited mail (Spam), real mail disappeared daily,
including some I'd never seen. It was frustrating," Ilene notes. Barry
Porter, Manager of Information Systems at Gerber Electronics, formerly
in MA, says: "With the increased dependence people have on reliable
email, having enough space on an email server is becoming a necessity,
not just a convenience."
Spymac welcomes email accounts from users 13 years old and up on any
operating system. The Spymac Hosting servers are located in
D�sseldorf, Germany, in a secure, Suntone Certified facility that
utilizes biometrics, CCTV, key-cards, mantraps and 24x7
on-site-security guards. Redundancy is built into Spymac's server
cluster, allowing for fast, reliable services with virtually no down
"We agree with the staff at Google, an increase in email storage to
one gigabyte makes sense. We already have the infrastructure in place,
so we can launch the first version of the expanded service today,"
said Kevin April, Co-Founder of Spymac.
