Excite Updates Web E-mail

Excite@Home Monday updated its Web-based e-mail service, putting a new interface on the product which allows users to manage e-mail, voice mail and fax messages in one location.

Known as Excite Inbox, the free service replaces Excite Mail and features a new user interface and additional features making the product more customizable. It also integrates Excite's voice mail feature into the same interface.

The update also gives users the ability to synchronize their e-mail address books with the information stored in personal digital assistants, including Palm Computing's Desktop. Palm customers can download My Excite for Palm VII at a variety of Palm download sites.

The service also features links to a variety of other Excite services, including Blue Mountain Arts electronic cards.
