Philadelphia, PA (April 8, 2009) -- GMX, www.GMX.com, the free webmail service, announces Beta trials are complete and the launch of its interactive User Lab community with a vibrant Brainstorm platform in the UK. GMX.com is for anyone looking for a new email address in a powerful, highly reliable, free email service.
With email well established around the world and only a handful of providers defining how webmail looks and works, the voice of the user is most often marginalised. After decades of designing and delivering email products, GMX fully committed itself to focus on listening to users ideas, and in 2007, delivered GMX.com. Since its introduction, over 500 user generated innovations have been implemented. Users have influenced every aspect of the look and experience that GMX.com delivers. Now GMX is one of the most powerful, secure webmail services.
Today GMX is launching two innovative new platforms to make it even easier for everyone to participate, share ideas, test new features and comment on enhancements before they go live. The GMX User Lab online community includes GMX Brainstorm, where new ideas are submitted and voted on by users. The highest rated innovations are put on the product roadmap.
Improving with every idea
