WebMailPRO

WebMailPRO Cloud-based email for school staff

Tools like Google Apps for Education offer free email for students and staff.

But there’s a price to pay: These programs may not meet CIPA-compliance requirements, nor can you count on privacy—there have been complaints of email-data mining.

To the rescue: WebMailPRO email for school staff (and its partner email app for students, SchoolBits).

Created especially for K–12 teachers, administrators, and other personnel, our powerful, fully featured school email system costs just pennies per user per month.

You get all the blocking capabilities of a traditional email system, along with the ease of a cloud-based service—there’s absolutely nothing to install or maintain.

WebMailPRO sets up in seconds and is a cinch to use. All you need is a browser and an Internet connection. Then you can email to your heart’s content—there are no storage limits.
