MIAMI, Aug. 27 // -- There's no doubt as to the enormous power of the Apple brand and the excellence behind its technologies. Yet Apple's iPhone users are warming up to a fresh, more affordable alternative to MobileMe. MailPronto (http://www.mpronto.com/), which offers hosted exchange, hosted e-mail and managed e-mail services, has noted a spike in customers signing on for its hosted e-mail program after researching their options. MailPronto provides nearly identical e-mail services as MobileMe, yet the independent online provider is able to do so at a lower cost. Whether iPhone users are signing up for a single plan or purchasing the services for an entire company, they're finding MailPronto costs less -- and they're liking it.
"Saving money and 'trimming the fat' from everyone's budget is top-of-mind nowadays," says Octavio Diaz, COO of MailPronto. "MailPronto gives iPhone users a fresh alternative in hosted e-mail services without sacrificing the quality of its offerings or skimping on the features. In looking at MobileMe and MailPronto, you'll see we provide almost the exact same benefits yet our price tag is lower. That's why we're busier than ever and receiving strong customer testimonials everyday. People are telling us we're the best value out there right now."
MailPronto is $8.95 a month per e-mailbox, and it's based on the tried-and-tested Microsoft Hosted Exchange platform. Like MobileMe, MailPronto provides real-time e-mail exchange, so e-mailing happens seamlessly and instantaneously. MailPronto also manages all e-mail-related services, plus it stores calendar and contact information through its online server. Real people -- as opposed to recorded messages or automated customer service -- assist MailPronto customers with their needs. This gives MailPronto yet another competitive edge in its industry, making it a leader in exceptional, efficient and cost-effective dedicated service.
"Our customers can have faith in what we provide for them, and enjoy the experience of choosing us as their hosted e-mail provider," Diaz says. "We're smaller than the big guys in our industry, yet we're definitely playing in their field. With our solid service, more personal approach and excellent pricing, we see ourselves as the winners."
MailPronto supports both iPhone 2.0 and iPhone 3G, and signing up is easy through its user-friendly website located at http://www.mpronto.com/. Additional customer benefits include: Free Outlook 2007 Software; Free Virus and Spam Filtering; Free ActiveSync for Treo/PocketPC; Free Outlook Mobile Access; and 2GB of Mailbox Space. Plus, MailPronto's Hosted Exchange service is fully compatible with Outlook 2003, Outlook 2007 and Entourage.
