Rediff.com has announced the launch of the ‘Access Mails Anywhere’ functionality for its Rediffmail service. The service enables mobile phone users to access their emails even without a GPRS connection. They can access their emails through SMS by sending messages to 7333. This would enable them to read, reply, delete and forward mails directly from their mobile phones. Users can also set ‘SMS Alerts’ for notification of important incoming emails.
Commenting on this initiative, Manish Agarwal, VP Marketing, Rediff.com, said, “Anytime, anywhere access to information is increasingly the norm for consumers today. This feature truly makes email service device agnostic by enabling millions of users who do not have a GPRS connection to access their mails on the move.”
Users with GPRS enabled phones can continue to access a richer version of Rediffmail from its WAP site. The company said that new mobility feature had been currently added only for Rediffmail and Rediffmail Plus users, which would soon to be introduced for Rediffmail Pro and Enterprise Pro business email users as well.
