SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 29, 1998--Free email is the latest new offering from, a leading nationwide ISP whose core business is unlimited Internet access for $14.95 per month.

The new free email service, called "SurfreeMail," is loaded with value-added email features including an address book, folders, automatic forwarding & responding, signatures, "personalities," and the ability to consolidate email from other Internet mailboxes into one convenient Web-based account.

Free Web-based email is presently offered through major Web portals, such as Lycos and Yahoo, but is the only ISP offering free email in conjunction with Internet access to grow their subscriber base.

In addition to free email, users of SurfreeMail are automatically listed in the Affiliate Program, enabling them to earn commissions by referring new subscribers to's standard $14.95 per month Internet access package.

Each program rewards members with free Internet service or commissions for referring new customers to the $14.95 access package.

"SurfreeMail is a logical extension of our very successful business model. Now customers can sign up for free email, earn money if they refer others to, and upgrade their account to a full service $14.95 package at the push of a button," noted founder and CEO Adam Portnoy.
