Rediff takes fight against email spammers to new level

Rediff issued a release stating that the new look free Rediffmail, which is its flagship email service, was now faster. It is also more secure with a spam shield and allows one to write emails in 11 Indian languages.

In addition, the free email users can now buy stand alone add-ons such as extra storage, POP3 access facility and SMS packs that allow users to send SMS from their free Rediffmail service to mobile numbers in India and the US. Users can also upgrade to the premium paid Rediffmail Plus service that has been additionally refurbished with a 30MB briefcase and a no account expiration policy in an ad free environment.

The key attribute of the Rediffmail spam shield is that it gets better over time with users' contribution.
