Telenor Satellite Services
has unveiled E-Mail Advanced, a new e-mail communications service - optimized to reduce costs and improve transmission efficiency.
Telenor E-Mail Advanced reduces user e-mail costs by up to 80 percent and features full duplex communications enabling users to send and receive e-mails simultaneously, increasing communications efficiency while reducing airtime costs. Also new, an automatic mailbag compression that cuts transmission costs by reducing the size and time needed to send messages. The service also features a crash recovery program capable of resuming full duplex transmission if a connection is lost or broken mid-session. Telenor's E-Mail Advanced Hub also scans all incoming e-mails for viruses. The benefit of all these features is improved transmission and efficiency and reduced costs.
This new remote e-mail service works with Telenor's Inmarsat A, B, M, Mini-M, Fleet and GAN technologies and serves maritime and land mobile users.

. "We have also made the E-Mail Advanced software available from our Web site or by CD-ROM, making it easy and convenient for users to download."
