WaxMail - Make your emails talk

Guest Author - Rick Carruth

Once every now and again I 'discover' a product or freeware item that I'm surprised I should need to tell anyone about.. It's practical value is so great that it should be a part of everyone's computing experience. Of course, when I 'discover' ( and I use that word very loosely as there are already thousands of folks using the product ) a product or resource I deem worthy of sharing with my friends, I get excited because I love free stuff, especially when it adds a unique new quality to the hardware/software you use every day.

WaxMail has the potential to become one of your very favorite add-on's.

Why? Well, WaxMail is a free download that, when combined with a simple microphone, gives you the ability to add an MP3 recording to any email. It's not necessary for you to physically type an email. You can compose an email by simply pressing a button that will appear on your screen and speaking into your microphone. A message will be auto generated telling the recipient to press a button on their email to listen to your recording. Believe me, it's easy.

The down side... you can only send an email with Microsoft Outlook or Outlook Express. Anyone, using almost any email client, can receive your emails. It's not necessary for them to have Outlook. This is the only negative I can find, but considering that more than eighty percent of all computers are equipped with Outlook, maybe it's not that much of a problem.

Your recording is attached to each email as an attachment. You can easily add multiple recordings to each email, in case the kids want to send their own personal message to Grandma. Additionally, since your emails are sent as an attachment, you can reply to any email with a recording. And of course, you can send a combination recording / text message.

Maybe by now your mind is abuzz with possibilities. Think of all the times, both personally and professionally, when it would be great to have the ability to add a voice to your emails. Send an email to a client thanking them for their business/order, and include a short, personal message, in your own voice, personally thanking them for their business. Great 'good will ' builder.

In addition to my work at BellaOnline, I market online with web sites and through newsletters. My number one newsletter is Magic Roadshow, which is a publication for magicians and mentalists. In my most recent issue, I included a paragraph about WaxMail and made a quick recommendation to this group of professional entertainers. The day after publication I had an inbox full of emails. Naturally, I assumed they were thanking me for the great content and wonderful articles.


They each sent me a 'recording', thanking me for the link to WaxMail. What a group of friends...
