Even more free e-mail

Arabia.com has introduced a 20 Mbyte mailbox to its free Internet e-mail service. The Amman-based portal operator claims that the inbox is now the largest free one available in the Middle East.

In this case, size may actually matter. High quality free e-mail services have proved to be a key driver of traffic to Web sites in the region. Maktoob.com, for example, has taken a commanding position in the traffic race simply because it is one of the most popular free e-mail sites in the region.

“As an Internet dependant, it has always frustrated me to have small mailboxes while away from the office,” said Ramzi Zeine, chief executive officer of arabia.com. “We’ve been eager to provide our visitors with mailboxes that they could use for sending everyday mail to their friends, colleagues and families.”

The mailbox, which can be used in Arabic or English, offers all of the standard features that internet users have come to expect from e-mail, including the ability to compose, reply, cc, bcc, forward, delete and move to other folders.

It also provides a choice of domain names in addition to the arabia.com address, including a selection of country names like user@cairomail.com or user@uaemail.com.
