Telstra launches easymail nationally

E-mail is now as cheap as a phone call, says Telstra, the company announcing its easymail service is now available nationally.easymail, which was piloted in Tasmania in October, is an e-mail-only service and requires that the user has access to at least a 486 PC with Windows 95 or 98, a CD-ROM drive and a 9.6Kbit/s or faster modem.

The only cost involved is that of a phone call to connect to easymail to send, receive and check for messages. The cost of providing this service, says Telstra, is off-set through advertising on the easymail interface. When customers sign up for easymail, they will be required to complete a survey to match their interests and demographics to advertising.

The service is limited in that attachments cannot be sent, but can be received if less than 250KB. There's also a hitch for customers of Optus Direct Connect and Optus digital mobile services -- dial-in access is currently not available to them, pending a formal agreement between Optus and Telstra who are currently in negotiations.

Telstra will be distributing free start-up kit CD-ROMs prior to Christmas. Pre-registration for kits is being taken now on 1800 429 444.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
