Buy services through email
People may want to sell information that is communicated better through email: written articles, tax returns, photographs, computer code, instructional videos, and any other digitally-based information. You can buy this information easily through Ether Mail.

Just like with Ether phone calls, Ether keeps your personal information and actual email address private.

Checking Ether Mail
On the My Ether page, you'll see "You have new mail" if there's an email waiting for you. (You can also choose to receive an email notification at the email address we have on file by updating your Personal Info.) Click on Inbox to access your mailbox. From the Mail page, you can:
  • Read your emails by clicking on the Subject
  • Reply to or delete when viewing an individual email
  • Send an email by clicking on Compose
  • Review your Sent Mail
  • Change your mailing options
Sending Mail
You have two choices of email you can send to other Ether members: Regular and Send Payment.
  • Regular. Sending simple messages and attachments.

  • Send Payment. Allows you to send payment to another member along with a message. As soon as the mail is sent, the money is automatically transferred from the sender's account to the recipient's account.

Buy Now Buttons
Buy Now Buttons allow you to buy content or services via Ether Mail from people who sell digitally-based information from their blog, personal website or email.

For personalized services such as a tax return, clicking on a Buy Now button takes you to your Ether Mail page with the amount requested by the seller. If you agree, you are pre-paying the seller for services or content that will be delivered at a later time.

For pre-packaged content such as a written article, clicking on a Buy Now button takes you to your Ether Mail page with the amount requested by the seller. If you pay, you'll instantly receive the content.

Mail forwarding
You can be notified of Ether Mails you receive at your normal email address (with or without the full message included). Even if your Mail is forwarded, members will still never see your email address. To update your preferences, go to the Mail section and click on Mail Options.

Good to know
Here are a few other things about Mail you should know:
  • To protect from spamming, you can only send Mail to members of Ether.
  • Emails you've read stay in your account until you delete them yourself.
  • Unread emails will be deleted if they were sent to you more than 90 days* ago, so be sure to check your messages at least once a month.
    *Note: this amount is subject to change at any time.
