Geekzonemail free e-mail FAQ

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 23-Aug-2007 09:54

It's been interesting looking through the numbers since we launched the free Geekzonemail e-mail service (a branded Windows Live Mail service). I am seeing a lot of interest in the service and some comments too. Here are some of my thoughts and notes on this (as a kind of FAQ):




- Is it Windows Live Mail?
Yes, it is. But it's a branded Windows Live Mail address - [youraccount]@geekzonemail.com. How cool is that?

- Lots of space?
Yep, 2GB storage available for your e-mails.

- What about security?
The whole infrastructure is provided by the Windows Live service, and we have no access to e-mail contents or other user information. Your account is a valid Windows Live ID, and as such it can be used to identify you to other Windows Live services - including live.com, Live Messenger, etc.

- Do I have to use webmail only?
You can access the service through the webmail interface, or use free Microsoft Outlook Connector to access the service directly from within Microsoft Outlook 2003 or Microsoft Outlook 2007. If you don't have Microsoft Outlook but you have a Windows XP or Windows Vista PC, then you can use the Windows Live Mail client.

- Can I access my e-mails from a mobile phone?
You can use your mobile phone's mobile browser to check your e-mails by visiting http://live.mobile.com.

- Is there a push e-mail option?
You bet! You can use the Geekzonemail address to login into Windows Live for Windows Mobile on your Pocket PC or Smartphone running Windows Mobile 6 and you will have an option to receive e-mails as they arrive on your inbox.
