indya.com, the Star-owned horizontal portal, is withdrawing its e-mail services from today. The decision do so was based on the survey done indya.com, which found the portal is not the primary e-mail destination for almost all users.
The portal has put out a message which says, ``We recently conducted a survey on the indya.com e-mail service. After pooling the results, we found that indya.com is not the primary e-mail destination for almost all users. Also, most of you would not be affected if the e-mail service were to be discontinued.''''
Indya.com which was a general horizontal portal when it was started by the Microland group became later entertainment-centric, revolving around Star''s various services including television and radio programmes.
According to the company, ``we can now optimally use our resources to serve you better. Our focus is sharper.'''' Indya.com went through a major downsizing after it was acquired by Star.
