Messaging solutions provider Mail2World has surged ahead of the world’s biggest free e-mail providers such as Yahoo!, Google and Microsoft, by announcing unlimited mailbox capacities for both new and existing Mail2World users. In the first such offer of its kind, the company is giving new users as many megabytes of e-mail capacity as they like, after they register for an email account at www.mail2world.com. Existing users will be upgraded automatically over the next few weeks. “Competition created by Google and Yahoo! around storage is attracting a lot of attention, but we believe the focus should be on how people use e-mail - not on how much it can hold,” said Youssef Abed, Mail2World’s executive vice president and COO. “After five years of serving millions of users, we learned user satisfaction derives from reliability and rich application tools - not storage. That’s why we designed our technology platform to handle millions of mailboxes and vast amounts of storage, while we continue to concentrate on developing features and functionality that enhance user communications.” “Nobody likes boundaries,” added Sean Game, Mail2World’s director of product development adds, ”and we believe that even huge storage numbers leave users feeling caged. By removing all storage boundaries, Mail2World users can feel free to send, receive and store an infinite number of messages and massive attachments without worrying about exceeding any quota.” Financially speaking, Mail2World claims it is able to afford to offer the service thanks to the revenue it derives from two channels: the placement of banner advertisements on its e-mail sign-in page; and selling private-label services to those businesses that want to offer web-based email to their members or customers, such as ISPs, corporations and schools. Mail2World can be accessed via standard web browsers and wirelessly using a mobile phone or PDA.
