SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Edison Software, today announced plans to launch a brand new email service, OnMail, slated for release in Summer 2020. OnMail is simple, lightning fast, and the first mail service to provide you full control over who can enter your inbox. OnMail is built for most consumers today who typically spend about 30 percent1 of their time online on mail, yet often experience common email problems not being solved by legacy mail providers. Following its success with Edison Mail, the #1 independent email app on the App Store, Edison set out more than two years ago to build the OnMail service. Sign up now to be the first to get an invitation at www.onmail.com.
The advantage of Edison’s near-decade of experience improving email for consumers and fighting email overload will be reflected in the new OnMail service. Unlike leading email providers that are more than 20 years old and continuously adding more, unnecessary features, OnMail includes a simplified mailbox design built for more natural usability and common sense functionality that parallels the way consumers use and think about email today. OnMail is the first and only email service to offer consumers revolutionary new Permission Control invented by Edison that allows you to approve or reject email senders you do or do not want to take up space in your mailbox. Additional features of the service include superior Search retrieval capability, Large Attachment support, automatic read receipt blocking without disabling images, enhanced speed of delivery, and much more.
“We’ve invested years as a company working to bring back happiness to the inbox,” said Mikael Berner, CEO, and Co-Founder at Edison Software. “OnMail is built from the ground up to change mail. Nobody should fear giving out their address or have to create multiple accounts to escape an overcrowded mailbox.”
Email to Remain Essential as Future Workforce Grows Remote
As the next generation of consumers grow increasingly entrepreneurial, independent, and remote as a workforce, so will reliance on digital communication tools. The need for a modern email service will become even more critical for individuals based outside of a traditional office setting who have use cases that span across personal brand building, business operations, and freelance work projects. A 2019 study2 by Upwork forecasts that by 2028, 73 percent of all teams will have remote workers. Additionally, new proprietary data from Edison Mail indicates that daily mobile email use among millions of consumers worldwide increased by 6% between March 16-20 when most people were confined to their homes due to the Covid-19 pandemic, compared to the same time period the month previous.
OnMail is being engineered with a brand new mix of features that these individuals can rely on to amplify productivity, elevate networking, and maintain control over their mail space.
Edison’s 2017 national survey about the state of email found that the type of email that Americans are most likely to delete is from someone they don’t know (76%), followed by retail emails (65%). OnMail’s Permission Control prevents those emails from entering your mailbox in the first place unless you permit them.
Other core features of the service are designed to stop common email problems like unwelcome solicitations flooding your inbox every moment, outdated mailbox search functionality that does not retrieve the information you need, and having to break up attachments that are too large to send, to name a few.
An Independent Email Service That is Fast, Safe, and Secure
Edison OnMail offers an independent and privacy-forward email service consumers can trust. The service is built 100% from scratch by Edison using cutting edge technology and security standards. Edison OnMail users will have the option to choose between free and paid versions of the service offering a menu of feature sets for individuals, freelance professionals, and companies to use.
OnMail users can Opt-In to share de-identified data with Edison for its research-backed business model. There are no advertisements or read receipts being served at any level of the OnMail service, so everyone can take back the convenience and privacy of using email without being personally targeted.
