MessagingThe introduction of electronic mail (e-mail) into society has revolutionised communications in every aspect of our lives. It has largely replaced physical letters as the standard form of written communication, allowing for near instantaneous communications with the person next door and an individual across the globe alike. Most correspondence not requiring an original signature is now e-mailed, with many businesses opting to send quotations, invoices and even statements via e-mail, as a more cost-effective, faster and efficient way of communicating with their clients.

Individuals and businesses have become increasingly dependant on e-mail communications, with many now opting to receive their e-mail messages via mobile devices while away from their workstations, just to ensure that no message goes unattended for any period of time.

E-mail systems are based on a store-and-forward model in which computer systems forward, deliver and store messages on behalf of users, who only have to connect to the system for the duration of message submission or retrieval. This model enables us to send messages at any time of the day or night, regardless of the recipient's availability, location or time-zone, safe in the knowledge that the message will be delivered as soon as the recipient is available.

AccessWeb offers various e-mail solutions, from single home-user accounts accessible via an internet interface, to dedicated e-mail servers configured internally to the organisation. Our customers can further choose between a generic e-mail address (yourname @ accessweb.co.za) and having a dedicated domain name (yourname @ yourcompany.co.za).
