L-Mail commences trials of Integration Account
04th January 2005
There are approximately 6 billion people on the planet, only 1 billion have Internet access but by integrating L-Mail into online systems businesses can communicate as easily to people with email as those without.

<b>What is an L-Mail integration account? </b>

By providing online businesses with basic HTML code to integrate in to your online systems, an L-Mail integration account enables clients to generate a letter as easily as generating an automated email. The code enables users to specify the exact formatting of letters (including images for logos, letterheads and signatures) and also provides the ability to specify which L-Mail printing and posting location letters should be sent from. A real-time online control panel lets users monitor letter production and manage their L-Mail account.

<b>What are the benefits </b>

- International letters don't have to take weeks. An L-Mail takes a few days as we print and post our letters close to the recipient from a number of global locations daily.
- People read letters, they rarely get deleted as easily as an email.
- As more and more email addresses get incorrectly blacklisted postal correspondence could represent the ideal way to remain in touch with your customer.
- Which creates the stronger impression an email or a letter? Create a more personal and longer lasting impression, show your customer you care enough to write to them.
- An L-Mail integration account lets businesses send letters seamlessly and as easily as sending an automated email.

New Year New Server
03rd January 2005
During the Christmas and New Year break the L-Mail site has moved to a new data centre and server. We hope you notice the difference. This is in preparation for new services about to be launched.

We would like to take this opportunity to wish you and yours a happy 2005.
Christmas trading
20th December 2004
We would like to take this opportunity to say a BIG THANK YOU to you for taking an interest in our L-Mail service in 2004. We have been rather blown over by the amount of support our service has generated and we're very much looking forward to 2005. As they say, "you've not seen anything yet!"

Over the next week, we will be moving L-Mail to a new server and upgrading the system ready for the introduction of the L-Mail integration account at the start of January. As a result, L-Mail will be UNAVAILABLE from mid-day 24 December 2004 until 04 January 2005 for sending letters.

We are all taking part in a revolution in the way letters are being produced and sent and we will continue to push the boundaries and L-Mail will be starting 2005 with a bang. We will be launching the L-Mail integration account, a system that allows users to automate the sending of letters through their web sites, using the L-Mail platform for printing and posting.

Enhanced online reporting for printing/posting partners will be introduced with this upgrade together with a number of other enhancements. Don't hesitate to get in touch if you would like further information.

Thank you again for your support. On behalf of Paul, myself and the L-Mail team I would like to wish you and yours a very happy Christmas and a mutually prosperous New Year.
L-Mail doubles number of printing/posting locations
03rd December 2004
Since its launch in September L-Mail has expanded from coverage in an initial 7 locations around the world to a current count of 14.

Most recent additions to the service include printing and posting locations in Cape Town (South Africa), Wellington (New Zealand), Melbourne (Australia) and Chennai (Madras) in India.

Peter Harris, Managing Director of QiQ Limited commented "Growing the number of locations that users can print and post letters from is important. The more locations means more customers can benefit from the increased speed and reduced cost sending an L-Mail represents. We get requests regularly to bring new locations online."

L-Mail enables users to send letters online without having to open an account and with letter costs starting from just 32p (around US$0.63) for a three page letter it represents very good value for money. Harris sees the benefits as more than just the cost of the postage "L-Mail is about operating a cost effective mail service, but its more than comparing prices with the Post Office. For example, a thee page L-Mail from anywhere in the world to Australia is just 32p, but if you take into account the time it takes letter writers to buy stamps, visit the post office and then the trip to the post box the actual savings are far greater." The L-Mail website makes the comparison that 20 minutes a week going to the Post Office is equal to 6 months during a lifetime.

But is L-Mail just being used as a gimmick? Harris comments "Some users do indeed see L-Mail as a gimmick - they use it to see if we actually do what we say we do and benefit from the novelty value of our service. However, the number of serious users is certainly greater and growing rapidly. We are starting to see many repeat customers who use L-Mail for both personal and business correspondence."

Whilst only two months young L-Mail has already achieved a number of its initial objectives. "Our initial goals were to develop a stable platform for L-Mail, open 10 printing/posting locations and to start to see regular use of the service by consumers. I'm pleased that we've exceeded our expectations in each area which gives us a great starting point as we look to introduce more enhancements and encourage growth in the use of our service" said Harris.

L-Mail is located at and currently allows letters to be sent online via Australia, Canada, India, Ireland, New Zealand, Romania, Slovenia, South Africa, Spain, United Kingdom and the United States of America to any country on the planet.

02nd December 2004
