Launches Wireless E-mail

FRAMINGHAM (03/27/2000) - introduced today what it called the first suite of integrated services that will deliver e-mail, voice mail and fax notification to wireless phones.

The San Mateo, California-based company said its new service will allow users to either view or listen to e-mail over their wireless phones. Users will also be able to compose e-mail in either text or voice, using a "reply with voicemail" feature to send a voice reply to an e-mail address.

The company said its service will also provide notification of incoming faxes, but not the ability to read them. The service will allow a mobile user to forward a fax to a nearby fax machine, a Onebox spokesman said.

Vinod Valloppillil, Onebox's senior product manager, said the company decided to concentrate on e-mail services because e-mail is still the "dominant" application on the Web, even at content-rich sites such as Yahoo.

Onebox will provide its services through carriers. Internet service providers and Web portals. Registered users can then check their mailboxes on the company's Web site.
