Us vs Google & Yahoo Groups

Are you a group organizer struggling with huge email address lists that you have to manage manually in Outlook, Google, or wherever? What a hassle!

Instead of being a slave to your address book, use an email group to let the group members come and go as they wish, letting you focus on CONTENT and your objectives.

We offer free Email Groups with these features:

  • No Email ads!
  • Support for Email in English, French, Japanese, Portuguese (var. Brazil), Polish, German, Danish, Czech, Russian, Chinese, Spanish, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Dutch and Swedish
  • Automatic Email spam & virus blocking
  • Newsreader (NNTP and RSS) Email archive access
  • An easy web-based Group Configuration tool
  • Group chat, files, links, address book, reviews, calendar, news, voting, projects, and forums
  • 4Gb of public web-page/file space
