NEW DELHI: If you have an Airtel Post Paid connection in Delhi and national capital region (NCR), your mobile phone could become your mobile email service, Airtel announced today, and Airtel calls it Easy Mail.

This is a specially designed email solution for its Post Paid customers in the Delhi NCR Circle.

"With these solutions, life on the move is enriched and becomes far enhanced, since the Airtel customers will be able to access email which works on the revolutionary Push-based technology on a range of GPRS enabled handsets of their choice, says an Airtel release.


The company is launching call centre updated ARCs in line and dedicated sales teams to campaign though spreading word of mouth and also its website for a major awareness campaign, the company said in response to a query.

"The Product works on a Real Time Synchronization between linked mail server and customer‘s Handheld (Push Technology)," said a company spokesperson, though he refused to answer all questions relating to Airtel‘s Post Paid subscriber base, projected revenue growth through this technology or investment made for this.


"Airtel Easy Mail is a hassle-free solution targeted at the Enterprise Users to check their corporate mails while they are on the move," the company claimed.

The service is Push-based mail where Airtel customers using a range of Symbian and Windows enabled mobile devices with GPRS connectivity can enjoy the service.

The mails are directly pushed to the handsets as soon as they reach the mailbox, instead of logging on to the service provider‘s server to check for new mails.

This service offers true push technology with real-time synchronization of mail on mobile devices with the corporate mail server.

It enables the mail to arrive on the mobile device just as it appears on the mail server and also supports most popular attachment types like Word, PDF, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.

It also synchronises calendar on-line to work as a planning tool while a customer is on the move.

There are two options for accessing the Enterprise Edition - Rs. 899/- unlimited usage or Rs. 199/- with 5 paisa / 10 KB download.

Apart from the above, Airtel is also offering Airtel Easy Mail in an Internet Edition where individual customers can access their personal Web-Based Email through a GPRS enabled handset anytime anywhere, according to the company.

All the widely used web-based email services and ISP based accounts can be accessed. Mobile Mail is delivered through a visually comfortable & graphically interfaced (unlike SMS based services) on a wide range GPRS enabled handsets of the customers‘ choice.

Commenting on the service, Mr. Christopher Tobit, CEO of Bharti Airtel Limited Delhi and NCR, said, "We design our email-based products after a much-detailed research on usage patterns of demographic profiles of all kinds.

"As always, we endeavour to meet and suit the unique needs of all our customer segments.
