There are so many software in the World Wide Web and the last thing that we will need is to have yet another email inbox to check. However, if you have difficulty surfing the Web, accessing your Twitter or Facebook, and you can’t kick those habits, Flexamail has got one of the best solution around, by allowing you to access them all in your inbox.
Flexamail is an email sevice, yet it is not the email service that you use to check for mail everyday. Sound confusing? To make it more explicit, Flexamail is a web service that can send your Web content, Twitter or Facebook update to your personal inbox. All you need to do is to send an email to the respective Flexamail email account and it will automate the process for you.
Flexamail is a personalize service, so you will need to sign up an account with them. You will need to sign up with your primary email address (or the email that you will be regularly accessing. My advise, don’t use your office email). This email address will be the primary tool you use to communicate with Flexamail.
There are several ways that you can make good use of Flexamail. You can:
- Access popular sites like Twitter and Facebook all from your email without needing a proxy
- Avoid pesky firewalls getting in your way, access websites and services regardless to your office or country’s firewall settings
- Post, share and track any type of files and images online
- Password protect those files you don’t want made public
- Securely backup your files online
- Save money on your cellphone plan with an email only data plan
- Publish a photo from your iPhone or Blackberry without needing to open an app
- Stay organized with sortable, sharable, drag and drop lists
To be able to access your Twitter and Facebook account, you will first need to give permission to Flexamail to access your account.
To receive update for your Twitter or Facebook account, all you have to do is to send a blank email (from the email address that you signed up Flexamail with) to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org respectively.
It will then reply you with a mail consisting all the updates in your Twitter/Facebook account.
Similarly, you can send email to email@example.com to post to your Facebook wall, firstname.lastname@example.org to send a tweet, and many other Twitter related services.
Surfing the Web
To surf the web with Flexamail, you can send an email to email@example.com and insert the Website URL as the subject of the email. You will then receive an email of the website you wish to view.
Need to perform a search on Google? No worry, just send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with the search terms as the subject.
You can also add your favorite sites (up to 4) to Flexamail and get it to retrieve content from those sites with the email email@example.com
Other services provide by Flexamail include uploading and storing your files (including encrypted files) and images and also creating a to-do list. More features will also be added in the near future.
Flexamail will be slow and redundant if you have full access to the web. But if you are in an office environment where (almost) everything online is blocked, except for your email address, then Flexamail will be a good way to continue to keep in touch with the Web.
