How does bixmail work?

It's very simple and fast:

You call our toll free number;

You identify yourself with speech recognition;

You tell bixmail to whom you wish to send your message (first and last name of a contact in your bixmail contact book);

At the tone, you leave your message and hang up when you are done;

Your message will immediately be sent to the addressee by email in an attached mp3 file.

How much does bixmail cost?

Bixmail's basic service is completely free. This is not a special limited time offer, Bixmail's basic service will always be free.

Bixmail also offers two paying services that include more options that give you the opportunity to experience even greater efficiency in communications.

Who is bixmail meant for?

Bixmail is meant for anyone and everyone. Bixmail’s main goal is to offer those on the road and on-the-go a mobile way to send e-mails.

The bixmail system can be used:

  • to send an email safely, while driving.
  • to send ideas and reminders to your own e-mail account.
  • to send an e-mail when you’re not near a computer.
  • to send an e-mail that would be better understood as a verbal dictation, then as a written message.
  • to send a vocal message without bothering anyone, no matter how late (or early).
  • to replace calling someone, in order to avoid having a lengthy conversation.
  • as a contingency plan when you know that the person you want to reach is busy.
What is the 'Caller ID Express Login' ?

When you call bixmail to send a message, you need to identify yourself; You would normally be entering your password and saying your name but with 'Caller Id Express Login' you will be automatically identified and the welcome message will be something like this: 'Welcome John, to whom do you want to send a bixmail?'. This allows every member of the bixmail community to send emails even faster. The Caller ID Express Login is available only when you're calling from your mobile phone. To activate this function, go to 'My bixmail ', 'My information' section and enter a cell phone number (make sure you identify it as a cellular type). You also need to make sure that your cell phone number is not confidential when you're making outbound calls.

This feature is part of how bixmail has been custom built to enable those on the road the opportunity to e-mail safely, hands free and with eyes on the road.

Can we use bixmail while driving a car?

Bixmail is certainly safer then typing an e-mail while operating a vehicle. When you use the "express login" option, bixmail can identify you as a user through your cell phone information. Add that to programming your 1-800 number in your speed dial, and you won't have to press a single button to send an e-mail! We strongly suggest investing in a headset in order to insure safety behind the wheel. Please be prudent, and abide by your local road regulations regarding driving and cell phone use. With a head-set and pre-programmed phone numbers, you'll be on your way, car wise and contact wise!
I have a Blackberry, why would I need bixmail?

A lot of Blackberry users enjoy bixmail for its speed and mobility. With bixmail, you’re sending e-mails of 150 words a minute, whereas with a mini-keyboard you’re typing at about 20 words a minute. Since there’s e-mail access on a blackberry, it’s a great way of sending yourself reminders and ideas when you don’t have the time to type a lengthy message. Also, you can send bixmail messages while driving or walking, without compromising your vision and concentration. That’s true mobility!
How can the addressee listen to his/her messages?

The recipient of a bixmail can listen to your message by playing the audio file attached to the email(the audio file can be opened by any application able to read wav or mp3 format audio files, such as Windows Media Player).
Why wouldn’t I just call the person directly?

That question can best be answered by another question: Why is e-mail so popular? The answer is simple, in many cases sending an e-mail is much more convenient than a phone call. Here are a few points worth considering:
  • It’s non-intrusive, you might not want to interrupt or disturb the person.
  • You simply want to inform someone, and don’t want any feedback.
  • You don’t have the time for impromptu questions or conversation.
  • You can send a message at any time, day or night.
  • You want to keep a copy of the message and its content.
  • You can send a message to several people at once.
  • When you receive a message, you can view it, forward it, and archive it for future reference, easily.
  • You can access your messages when most convenient for us.
  • There are no long distance charges.

All of these reasons apply to e-mail and they also apply to bixmail! What singles out bixmail is that you don’t need a PC. You can be on the road, in the gym or about to fall asleep, and you can send bixmail messages easily without delay, and with minimal effort.

Why wouldn’t I just leave a message on their answering machine?

Voicemail is the result of a missed call. What if they’re in the office or available? What if they have an assistant or secretary? What if it’s the middle of the night and you risk waking them up? What if you know they’ll answer?

Sometimes, all you want to do is leave a message.

How many contacts am I allowed?

You can store as many contacts as you wish.

How can I import my contacts into bixmail?

You can now import your Outlook and Mozilla Thunderbird contacts; other software imports will be available soon.

To import your Outlook contacts into bixmail, go to "My bixmail,” choose the "My contacts" section, click 'Import contacts' and follow the instructions.

Why can’t I enter two contacts with the same name?

Bixmail uses voice recognition software to find the corresponding name from your Contact List. This technology cannot—at this time—differentiate between two of the same name. That’s why, if two people share the same name, we suggest you use nick names or their last name to avoid any complications with the service.
Is there a limited number of messages that can be sent?

The bixmail basic service, Rapido, is free and allows you to send 15 bluffmail messages per month. Subito and Presto plans allow you to send a greater volume of messages during the same month. Please consult the “Packages” section for more details.
How is bixmail faster then my regular e-mail or my mobile e-mail?

The answer comes from human experience, we talk faster then we type.
Check out the following statistics, people type (on average):
  • 30-40 words per minute on a standard keyboard.
  • 15-30 words per minute on a Blackberry or Palm style “thumb-pad”.
  • 8 words per minute on a cell phone keypad.
They talk 125-150 words per minute!
How can I send a bixmail in carbon copy (cc)?

To send a message to more than one person or to send a second bixmail message during the same call, all you have to do is stay on the line when you’re finished your message. After 2 seconds of silence the system will re-direct you to an option menu equipped with voice recognition software. This menu will you to make these choices.
How can I send multiple bixmail messages in the same call?

Please see the previous question.

What is the "One-Click SMS Reply" that is offered by bixmail?

This is an incredibly handy feature. When you send a bixmail message, the receiver will have access to a link which will re-direct them to a text message window where they can reply directly to your bixmail! The message will be sent via SMS text messaging directly onto your cell phone, no matter the model! Not only will you be sending vocal e-mails while on the go, you'll be able to receive text message replies!

In order to set-up this feature, you'll need to configure your cell phone in the "My bixmail" section.

Can I promote this service?

Absolutely! Feel free to spread the word to your family, friends and colleagues, this service is meant for everyone.
What is “bluffmail” ?

Bluffmail was the former incarnation of bixmail; We simply changed the name to reflect the evolution of our product, and to commemorate our official launch onto the business market.
Why am I not receiving copies of my bixmail e-mails? My contacts say they're not receiving my bixmail e-mails.

It’s very possible that the bixmail e-mail messages are having trouble getting past your spam software. Make sure bixmail is on you “friends” or “safe” list, this way it wont have any trouble getting into your inbox.

Also, go back into “My bixmail” and make sure the e-mail addresses you entered have been entered correctly.
