Ippimail is closing
Ippimail is due to be taken down any minute now. Friday 1st May 2009.
Thanks to all who have supported us over the years. Part of me is incredibly proud of what we did and part of me feels I let everybody down by not making it work longer term. Next time perhaps.
I must mention Kate and Lorraine who worked with me on this and put up with so much. Special mention also to Jason, the original developer on ippimail. Without him it would probably never have happened and I miss working with him.
Look out for the Big Red Hand on future projects :-)
It is with very great regret that we have to announce the closure of the ippimail project.
Had the economic climate been better we may have been able to keep going for longer but we just can’t carry on without an income.
I have promised to give you all three months notice so barring a miracle we will take the site down at noon on the 1st May 2009, UK time.
Please rest assured that any personal data we have on our server will be deleted without being passed to any third parties.
For this reason it is imperative that you remove any email you need from your account by forwarding it to another email address. There is *absolutely no way* we will be able to retrieve your email after the 1st May 2009.
Please also be sure to tell all your contacts that you have a new email address. Mail sent to any ippimail address *will not* be delivered after 1st May 2009. It would make sense to do this sooner rather than later and keep checking your ippimail account for anyone who hasn’t got the message.
It’s quite likely that we will do another ‘Social Enterprise’ in the future so it’s important that we complete the ippimail project in the best possible way. Please put any comments you may have in our forums or post a comment below
Many thanks to those people, all over the world, who have supported the project over the last few years.
