Shortmail lives up to its name and makes your e-mail communications lighter. It can be of a great value to both your personal and professional lives where you need the conversations to be light and crisp.
Despite the compact features, the million dollar question still remains. Will Shortmail replace the conventional e-mail? Think of the times when your conversation can’t be completed in 500 characters or when you have to send attachments. Shortmail wouldn’t come to rescue during those times.
