One of the leading online portals of the country, Rediff.com India Limited on Wednesday (November 26), launched its new “Web-in-mail” service. With the introduction of the new tool, users can access internet content using email clients like MS Outlook, Outlook Express and Thunderbird.
This can be achieved in two simple methods either by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the URL of the webpage which the user wants to access in the subject line or by a prompt reply received with the webpage in the user’s inbox. Clicking a hyperlink within the webpage received automatically composes another mail. On sending this mail another reply mail is received with a new webpage.
This service, in its beta version (a beta version is the second stage of software testing), also allows users to search the internet. Users simply need to send their search query in the subject line and result mail is received via email.
According to Mr. Venki Nishtala, CTO, Rediff.com, “Web-in-mail” will let people with restricted internet access to now access internet content.
