THE WORLD’S FIRST ANONYMOUS EMAIL SERVICE WITH ‘REPLY’ OPTION -WWW.VALENTINESUNITED.COM LAUNCHES TODAY Friday 8 February 2002 PDF Print Contact Antonia Gormley at Brands2Life on 0207 386 6200 Valentine’s United, ( http://www.valentinesunited.com) the first anonymous email service to feature a ‘reply’ option, is launched in the UK. This free service, launched by the people behind www.192.com, is also launching in Australia. The site – www.valentinesunited.com - offers people the chance to send the object of their affection a secret Valentine’s message. All they need to do is put in their email and the email address of their admired one. There is no registration requirement. The message arrives anonymously in the recipient’s in-box. Unlike any other similar service the recipient has the option to reply to the sender. They can converse, whilst keeping the sender’s identity secret for as long as they wish. If the sender wishes to reveal his identity in one of his or her messages he can do so. What happens next is up to the couple! (There is also a button for the recipient which stops all emails if he or she has had enough!) The service is being launched this week via over 3 million email alerts to the Lycos and http://www.192.com customer base. Alastair Crawford, Managing Director of 192.com, comments, “One of the frustrations with the Valentine’s Day tradition is that the mechanisms for bringing two people together if they like each other are very unreliable. This service gives people the option to get to know each other and for the admirer to reveal his or her identity if he wishes. Moreover they can do it safely and securely using our leading-edge password and firewall technology. The same service can be used for a wide range of similar anonymous communications and we will be revealing more about this in the next few weeks.” www.192.com provides address, location and telephone contact details for over 45m citizens and 2m businesses culled from the electoral roll and other sources. Visitors to www.192.com can also check out company and director reports, carry out credit checks; and access international directories. 192.com has 2 million registered members. http://www.192.com This press release was distributed by ResponseSource Press Release Wire on behalf of Brands2Life in the following categories: Consumer Technology, Personal Finance, Business & Finance, Computing & Telecoms, for more information visit https://pressreleasewire.responsesource.com/about.
