LOS ANGELES, Feb. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Vertical Computer Systems, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: VCSY) announced today that it is now making free e-mail accounts available at TheChinaBridge.com using its universal e-mail solution ThePostmaster.Net. The Postmaster.Net is a Web-based e-mail provider. The Postmaster.Net is based on the premise that e-mail access should be easy and possible from any computer connected to the World Wide Web. By adhering to the universal Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) standard, ThePostmaster.Net eliminates the disparities that exist between different e-mail programs. E- mail provided by Internet Service Providers (ISPs) requires the use of a properly configured e-mail program. To access e-mail provided by services such as CompuServe(R) or AOL(R), a member needs proprietary CompuServe(R) or AOL(R) software. These client/server e-mail systems are inherently limited and closed because they require the use of proprietary client software. E- mail access on these services is not universal, difficult while traveling, and virtually impossible from overseas. Sending and receiving e-mail from ThePostmaster.Net is as easy as visiting a Web site. By using a Web browser as a universal e-mail program, ThePostmaster.Net brings the user personal information in a globally retrievable form. ThePostmaster.Net is based on open Web-based technology. The Web browser, which is more universally available than any proprietary e-mail program, is used for e-mail sent from and received by ThePostmaster.Net. Web-based ThePostmaster.Net is accessible world wide, offers a cross-platform e-mail solution, and is cheaper and easier than using traditional e-mail programs. An additional advantage of ThePostmaster.Net is that a user is not required to install any new software other than a Web browser.
