Stephanie Watson, an editorial reviewer for GetApp, recently reviewed Atmail and scores the solution 4.5 / 5 stars.
Highlights of the review include:
AtMail is much more than a simple email program for business. It’s an email solution for small to medium-sized businesses that need the flexibility of shared calendars, seamless mobility, simple syncing, and easy-to-implement branding options from their email.
If you’re on the go as much as I am, you’ll see the real beauty of AtMail is that it allows you to switch from desktop to laptop to tablet to mobile phone without sacrificing any of the full, rich features you expect from the AtMail service.
You don’t have to worry about losing the important stuff in the clutter when you use AtMail services. The pages are easy to read and navigate. The lines are clean and well-defined whether you’re working on a desktop computer, tablet devices, or through mobile phone apps.
