BigMailBox.com Offers Ad-Backed E-Mail to Sites

Beverly Hills, CA-based BigMailBox.com Inc. launched a site that offers advertising supported e-mail services to enable Web site owners to offer free, Web-based e-mail accounts to their visitors.

The consumer's -mail address includes the Web site's domain name (e.g., member@Webmaster'sDomainName.com). Webmasters who sign up for a BigMailBox account receive 20% of the advertising inventory, the company said. In addition, Webmasters receive banner tracking information and ad server software.

"The word-of-mouth response to BigMailBox has been tremendous! We are very pleased that our clients have recognized our commitment to superior customer service and are looking forward to continuing with our goal of giving every Webmaster on the Internet a BigMailBox account" said Rob Walther, spokesman for BigMailBox.

BigMailBox gives Webmasters the opportunity to build brand name recognition while generating advertising revenue. Webmasters also build a valid "member" mailing list. Repeat traffic and enhanced domain name branding is created as members return each day to check their e-mail box, the company said. The service is free to the Webmaster.
