The new site looks very similar to the old one but it has been completely rebuilt from the ground up using the same technology used to build Facebook. The new UI is more functional and much snappier to use. It will also make it much easier for us to add new features in the near future.
Features of note in the current release include :
- Single page design which makes for a much snappier user experience
- Full ssl support
- Updated alias management tool
- Simpler Block / Hide buttons
We would love to hear your feedback on the new site and if you run into any bugs, If you do find a bug please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org stating your username along with your os and browser versions.
We have just added a new account type, 33mail Pro.
It offers the following :
- 500MB monthly bandwidth limit
- 100 anonymous replies per day
- Up to 5 custom domains
- All premium features
All for the low low cost of $60 per year.
We hope that this will keep our power users happy.
We often get requests from users that want to change their username as they were not aware that it would be part of their 33mail email addresses when they originally signed up. To accommodate these users we have added a section to the Account Info page where you can change your username. You can only change your username once and when it is changed it is irreversible and any mails sent to your old username will NOT be forwarded onto you.
We are happy to announce that we have just deployed anonymous reply as a Beta feature for all users.
When you’ve enabled anonymous replies on your account, you will be able to reply to the sender of emails without revealing your real email address to them.
As a lite user you will be limited to 1 reply per any 24 hour period. Premium users have a much higher limit. To enable anonymous reply just login to your dashboard and go to Account Details. You will then see the Reply Settings section where you can enable Anonymous Reply and set a reply name which will be shown to anyone you reply to.
We would love to hear any feedback you have on this feature along with any problems or praise.
If you are not currently a user then sign up for 33mail here.
We have just rolled out support for Bitcoin transactions when paying for your premium subscription. Enjoy!!
We have invested in a new domain for 33mail users to play with namely 33m.co. You can now create your 33mail addresses @<username>.33m.co which will save you from typing 4 characters every time you use a 33mail address (unless, that is, you use the 33mail bookmarklet or the 33mail chrome extension). That’s a massive 40% saving for your fingertips, and will surely add to your keyboards longevity.
Cue the landrush for one and 2 character usernames, I assure you there are some still available.
Based on conversations with our users, we’ve decided to drop the number of referrals required for a free year of our Premium service from 5 to just 2!
All you need to do is to make sure that your friends sign up using your referral link, which you can find at the bottom-right of your dashboard page.
So what are you waiting for?! Time to start evangelizing!
We have just deployed a new dashboard home page is now live with what we hope is a clearer explanation of how to use 33mail along with some css3 rounded corner goodness (note that Internet Explorer users will be stuck with square corners until Microsoft gets its act together).
We hope to deploy further widgets to the dashboard page in future to give at a glance useful information such as bandwidth usage and most used aliases. Any feedback on the new layout, good or bad would be much appreciated.
