Over the past year we have introduced a number of new features to Thexyz webmail such as mobile sync, 25 GB mailboxes and mobile apps. As we are beginning a new year I thought I would write a post to give you some insight into some of the features and updates we have planned for 2014.
Automatic Password Recovery
I know as well as you do that this has been a feature that has been much requested over the past couple of years. Good news is that in the next few months we expect to release this feature. We are still deciding exactly how we introduce this feature whilst keeping or business email service as secure as possible. The reason for the delays is the fact we do not want to rush into this feature. We know it is time consuming for our support team to keep resetting passwords, and we will be happy to introduce this anticipated feature later this year.
Email Compose Window
Whilst most users will not notice any difference when composing an email. There are some browsers and devices that had issues with certain aspects of the text editor when composing an email. We expect to roll out fixes for these issues in the near future. Thanks to all the users that reported any issues they came across over the past year or so.
Microsoft Exchange 2013
In the next few weeks we are expected to launch the latest Microsoft Exchange offering which will add some additional features to existing Exchange clients at Thexyz. We will be increasing the storage size of Exchange mailboxes to 100 GB. There will be improved synchronization with Outlook and 100% uptime.
Secure Webmail Chat
We are looking into introducing our own chat system in webmail that would allow business users to chat with other team members. We have not decided on how this will work or how it will be billed. We were also looking at the possibility of adding a video chat system too. None of these features have been set in stone yet and we welcome your feedback on this feature in our feedback forum.

If you ask any employee today, they will often complain that email is the blight of their workday. They are often overwhelmed and do not know how to deal with email effectively. These tips below can be applied to a heavy email user that is constantly keeping an eye on their inbox and responding to email all day to someone who just checks email once a day.
Create sub folders
If you receive a lot of mail from one person on an almost daily basis, you could automatically filter any mail from them into a sub folder. This way when they ask if you received the email from last Tuesday at lunchtime, you can easily check without having to go through all your emails. The folders also work great if you are doing business with a particular website. You could create as folder for the website any mail sent from that domain is automatically filtered there.
Keep on top of your spam settings
Spam levels have dropped a lot over the past few years thanks to the effort of multiple spam detection tools. It is still important to manage, and you can do so by, reporting the spam and block the sender from being able to penetrate your neatly organised inbox again. You can block a whole domain, email address or IP address via the spam blacklist.
An alias is like an additional email address that can be added or removed to save you using your real email address. This can be exceptionally handy for handling multiple email addresses within one email account. Maybe you don't want to give out your real email address, but need to ensure that you receive the emails sent to that address. This is just one example of when an email alias is suitable.
Use the email calendar
Email calendars are very powerful tools and often highly universal. Integrating with a variety of different devices and applications. They are secure and tied to your email account, so if you lose your mobile phone or upgrade your computer, then you can rest assured that your email calendar will still be available. Many CEO's and successful, or motivated people credit their achievements to organization, setting goals and making appointments like this are great way to start. Within an email calendar you can categorize tasks and events by colour, set them to occur over on a weekly, monthly our annual basis. You can also set reminders through email or sms and invite others via email to a calendar event.
Keep a zero inbox
It is a lot easier said done. The idea is that every email received should be dealt with. Either deleted, archived in appropriate folder or marked as spam. This is a great practice to get into, the key to success here is to have your subfolders create to store any mail you wish to archive. Having a good spam protection tool will also help. Thexyz multiple layers of spam protection ensure you will have clean inbox that can also be a great help to keeping a zero inbox.
Make use of auto responders
Whether you are going on vacation or dealing with a high spike in incoming email, an auto responder will help get the message out by automatically sending a message to everyone that sends a message to you.
Setup email filters
I mentioned it above the "Create sub-folders" section, I will mention it again as it really, create some email filters.
Create a folder for bacon (BACN)
BACN is not a food but email, unlike spam it is email that has been subscribed to and is therefore not unsolicited. Over the past few years, advances in spam detection have lead to a reduction in the amount of spam making it to your inbox. Email marketers are now sending more mail than ever before to members and subscribers. These daily or weekly emails can take up much of your inbox. You probably don't want to keep them all, and at the same time, not send them all to your spam for easy purging. Instead create a folder called 'BACN.' You can then use filters to divert these newsletters and notifications to the BACN folder to find all this non-essential email in one place. It can also be easily deleted.
