Hallo

If you had been unable to access our Web site the whole of yesterday afternoon, it's because our servers were moved physically to new premises in  Miami, USA. We are sorry for the inconvenience caused. The move to better facilities will no doubt result in better system administration, hardware maintenance, network throughput, and overall technical support.

I thought now is as good a time as any to promote our E-mail service to all of you out there who already have a free Web mail account with providers such as Hotmail. I am sure you are not too happy with the frequent advertisements that make their way into the screen in front of you when you are composing or reading your e-mails.

Don't you think it's about time you signed up for a paid e-mail account? Getforme Singapore provides such accounts at S$5 per month per user. We are keeping the monthly subscription low so that the e-mail service will be attractive to you. Also, we can rake in some income to cover our Web site's operations.

Each e-mail account has the following features:

- free of ads

- 15 MB diskspace

- calendar

- note-taking

- choice of two domains:

  1. user@getforme.com  eg.  mike@getforme.com or

  2. user@redpackets.com eg. sally@redpackets.com 

What's more - if you sign up between now and 30 June 2003, you pay a promotional subscription fee of S$25 half-yearly or S$50 yearly.

Interested? E-mail us at accounts@getforme.com and quote E-mail Account as the subject.
