Your address will look like:
As well as being a useful continuation of your University identity and an easy way to keep in touch with your peers, the address will also come in very useful in the next phase of your life:
|"A recent survey of HR managers by Yahoo! found that 51 per cent would be put off by a candidate who had a "wacky" e-mail address. Although a university e-mail account is perfectly acceptable, it may cause you problems on graduation, when the address expires."|
|Your PidgeMe account will never expire.|
You have the option of various accounts to suit your needs.
You will receive 3 months' free trial at the enhanced-level service.
A Quality Service
PidgeMe differentiates itself from the many public/free email services on the web by offering a higher quality email experience, uncluttered with distracting advertising and fully supported by a properly manned helpdesk.
Being a trusted, university provided service, you can be 100% sure that your privacy will always be completely respected, resulting in a noticeable absence of spam (provided of course you keep your address private yourself). Even if the address does get on the odd marketing list, our dedicated and user-configurable spam firewall captures the majority of junk.
You will receive exceptional customer service
The subscription amount, from just £6.00 per YEAR, is perhaps the smallest of any ad-free service and you should expect to rapidly recoup this value in terms of both the stress and time saved.
