Launch has been announced for Umail.net, a free webmail service designed to provide smoother experience along with convenience of use. The new webmail allows creating email aliases under a single account with just one mouse click, and offers exceptionally strong antispam protection based on e-mail address whitelist.
Online PR News – 21-November-2010 – – Umail.net is specifically geared to those who need a dozen of email addresses without remembering a dozen of passwords. The service allows its users to create additional email addresses (aliases) that will forward messages to the main account. While email aliases are also available at some other webmail services, Umail.net developers took care to make this feature particularly convenient by adding a special Aliases menu. From this menu a user can create new aliases (email@example.com, where "alias" is any prefix) and delete them as they become redundant or compromised - all with one click of a mouse.
Being especially handy for registering with various websites, this one-click-alias feature can also be used to separate business contacts, friends and relatives. The smart service can automatically tag emails from different addresses and move them to specified folders to avoid mixing up business correspondence, personal life, and various notifications and newsletters. What's more, filtering rules can be customized independently for each alias.
For the main address Umail uses whitelist-based filtering, which means that only messages from those in the contact list will make it to the Inbox. All the other emails are stored in a separate Spam folder. If a contact is added to the whitelist the message is moved to Inbox, otherwise it is deleted after a certain deadline (3 days by default, but can be changed as required). However, a message from someone who is not on the whitelist has a chance of getting to the Inbox. The sender can pass antispam check to be added to the address book without waiting for confirmation from the account owner. This system renders antispam protection impenetrable for junk mail, yet ensures that messages from friends, colleagues and business partners easily get to the mailbox.
Most of Umail features described above are only one or two mouse clicks away, thanks to the intuitive interface being similar to that of popular email clients. A user can get familiar with Umail in no time and start efficiently managing correspondence.
