Ypsilanti, MI (September, 12, 2007) — OnlyMyEmail, a provider of email services for consumers, corporations and Internet Service Providers, today announced the introduction of a Web-accessed email solution, OME-kids.com, which will offer children protection from internet predators who try to reach kids through their email. Unlike other solution providers, OnlyMyEmail will not accept payments from direct marketers to bypass its filters. Of equal importance, the OME-Kids solution protects children from harmful e-marketers that conduct direct-marketing campaigns to children as well.
OME-kids.com creators, who are parents themselves, realized most email systems do not provide enough security and protection for children and their children’s computers. They recognized the void and felt a responsibility to take action as parents with the unique resources to be able to make a difference.
“We did not create OME-kids.com as a significant revenue-generator,” said Stephen Canale, President of OnlyMyEmail. “In fact, we are offering the solution at a cost-of-operation value in order to help other parents who are struggling with the same kinds of concerns.”
With the desire to provide a solution that is easy for parents and children to use, OME-kids.com creators made sure no software or hardware is necessary. Parents can subscribe and kids can access the Web-mail system using any standard Internet browser. Parents can also manage multiple OME-kids email accounts via one screen. By filtering and analyzing the complete content of a child’s email and every facet of the communication — as opposed to only simple keyword or sender analysis that other companies offer — OME-kids.com provides parents with a turn-key filtering solution with advanced filtering techniques not available anywhere else.
For example, OME-kids.com has a No Permission-based Marketing Promise. While nearly every other provider accepts payments from direct-marketers to by-pass the email provider’s filters, OnlyMyEmail makes a promise to its customers that it will not accept such offers and believes that customers deserves the right to email privacy.
OnlyMyEmail Offers Exclusive Parental Controls — customizable to parent specifications, including:
Optional “Lock-Down” mode (most appropriate for very young children) only allows email delivery from senders who have first received parental approval.
Optional “Parental Review” saves copies of all email delivered to your children’s OME-Kids.com addresses.
Optional “Kids Carbon Copy” sends the parent copies of all outbound messages sent from child’s OME-Kids.com account.
All blocked messages may be easily released for delivery upon parental review and approval.
OME-kids.com is priced at $24.00 annually for up to two children’s accounts and $12.00 annually for each additional account. With advanced filtering techniques working on the back-end so that users (parents and children) have access to a seamless filtering solution with an Interface that is easy-to-use and parental control features that can be turned on or off with a simple click, OME’s filtering solution offers 24/7 analysis of email communications — protecting children from potential predators, inappropriate direct marketing, email viruses and harmful email in practically every circumstance.
OnlyMyEmail (OME), a PC Magazine and PC World award-winning company, provides a wide-range of email services for consumers, corporations and Internet Service Providers, all built upon the most effective and accurate SPAM filtering technology available. Corporations and ISPs utilize OME services on enterprise-wide implementation, which includes priority services through both shared and dedicated servers.
