Zenbe Brings Email Into Today's Social Media World; Announces General Availability of Free Email Client

Breakthrough Approach De-Clutters Inboxes With Conversation and Favorites Views Providing Social Media Elegance and Functionality

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - November 17, 2008) - Following a successful beta trial, Zenbe today announced general availability of its unique Web-based email client. Zenbe helps users manage many aspects of their online world from a single service, organizing their inboxes with intuitive views within an elegant interface.

Zenbe provides an entirely new way to manage email messages, files and attachments. Users can import existing email accounts into a single inbox, then view email messages by conversation or by person, or by favorite people, in friendly views reminiscent of social networks. Yet this email client offers powerful organizational and search features that surpass functionality found in other Webmail or desktop applications. Users can view all email file attachments in a single pane and filter by file type, enabling quick access to specific files. Zenbe lets you preview attachments within your inbox without opening the associated application. With Zenbe, users organize email messages and attachments in a way that makes sense to them, rather than being tied to the linear organization of traditional email offerings.

"The Internet has evolved with the advent of social media technologies, however email has remained shackled to yesterday's Web," said Alan Chung, CEO of Zenbe. "We designed Zenbe to not only offer a better email experience, but also to bring email into the modern realm of social media and provide people with a simplified approach to managing all their online communication."

Social Media-Based Approach to Email Delivers New Capabilities

Zenbe also provides calendars and task lists, as well as the unique ZenPages offering, which provides people and businesses with an intuitive, rich experience for sharing and collaborating. These features help users manage personal and professional projects, whatever their need. Consumers have managed event planning, home buying, and even household to-do lists with ZenPages while organizations securely share files among employees or clients, and bundle emails according to projects.

Unlike any other Web-based email client, Zenbe integrates social media such as Twitter and Facebook, allowing users to manage those channels within their email environment. "With the proliferation of social media channels available to consumers, people often suffer from digital overload -- and a lack of time and inclination to manage multiple channels," said Peter Stern, president of Zenbe. "With Zenbe, I make better use of Facebook and Twitter than before, because it's right there, next to my email."
