OnMail – the new e-mail service from Edison Mail – officially launched today in a public beta version, offering the company to rediscover the reception of emails to the masses.
Edison is best known for his regular email app (which recently debuted a new premium subscription service), but at the end of the day, the original app is effective only with a fresh coat of paint and some extra nice features of regular Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo or iCloud mail . OnMail, on the other hand, is a more drastic attempt to correct email from the outset, offering an entirely new e-mail service designed for privacy and convenience.
Interestingly, OnMail is the second major new e-mail service to launch in 2020 with a view to correcting modern inadvertent emails since the release of Hey (by the creators of Basecamp) earlier this year. Unlike Hey, however, OnMail offers a completely free level. (Hey added a 14-day account to the burner to try to calm Apple down.)
The marking feature for OnMail is similar to Hey – the ability to filter out any new sender trying to send you an email and allow only those contacts you want in your mailbox. On top of that, there are layers of Edison’s existing unsubscribe and block features designed to give users much more control over who can contact them.
There is a feature for splitting incoming messages, which sounds similar to Superhuman, which allows you to filter email into small subsections. OnMail Search promises to support a more natural language instead of requiring specific search strings. Automatic read-out blocking is built-in by default to prevent people from tracking whether you’ve read their emails. In addition, OnMail integrates features from Edison’s existing email application, such as package and flight tracking, account and receipt filtering, and price alerts for recent purchases.
OnMail also offers support for sharing much larger files directly via email than the 25MB limit imposed by Gmail, with the option to send sharing up to 100MB on the free plan up to 5GB at the most premium subscription, in what effectively file transfer service integrated on email functionality. Large files will also receive separate landing pages to make them easier to share.
OnMail offers four different plans. There is a free personal plan that offers a username for @ onmail.com and includes 10 GB of memory and 100MB attachments. Access to the free plan will be movably distributed to customers who have registered back when OnMail was first announced in April, while paid plans will be open immediately to anyone interested in subscribing.
All three other plans include monthly fees and cost $ 4.99, $ 9.99 and $ 19.99 per user per month. They are designed for larger teams with more withdrawal needs, such as more storage, larger attachments, password-protected files, and more. All three paid plans also include a custom domain option for the email addresses included in the price, in order to optimize personalized email usernames for fewer technical users who don’t want to handle the purchase of their own URL.
In addition, OnMail restricts access to the highly coveted @onmail.com usernames by less than eight characters to your professional and business plans – so if you hope to have your name as an email address, you’ll have to pay.
It’s too early for OnMail as a service – for now, it will be available primarily through a browser-based web browser, although Edison Mail apps on iOS, Android and Mac will also have access to accounts. But more full support for OnMail in these applications will not arrive later this year, and special OnMail applications will not arrive until next year.
