mailbox moduleiShipNet Messaging System in an inline mailbox, just like your e-mail. The difference is that all sent and received messages never come to your own computer. You manage them through iShipNet. Both when you send or receive. This means that you are 100% protected of being infected from any type of virus that may destroy your computer.

When you are online on iShipNet you always know what happens in your mailbox. The Mailbox widget (screenshot on the right) allows you to have quick access to all Messaging System's functions.

  • Inbox (Where you can see the mails you received)
  • Outbox (Where you can see the mails you have sent and get informed if the receiver opened them or not)
  • Trashcan (Is the place where the messages that you have trashed are kept, till they are deleted from the system)
  • Contacts / Lists The place where you can create your contact lists, circular lists, or anything else might be usefull for your business communication)
  • Compose (This is the form to create and send a message)

Here are iShipNet Messaging System's functions one by one.
