As well as this being an intriguing product, I also really like the illustration style throughout the site - paired with Publico I think it's a real nice combination.
Curious though, would anyone consider paying for a service we so often get for 'free'. Interesting to see someone coming at it from a different angle, explaining that 'free' so often isn't the case.
Edit: Just saw this on PH - use this link to get 3 months free as well: soverin.net/join/producthunt
Agreed the entire aesthetic is really solid. The drawings the font, and even the copywriting is really solid.
I might be missing the point but how is this different to email hosted with your own domain / hosting? (pricing seems comparable). Not knocking the service, but would honestly like to know.
Second Joe Cooper. I'm also curious about whether people would pay for this kind of service.
As for me, I love using the free Gmail and the fact that they can "read"—more like automated scan—my email doesn't bother me at all since they are used to help me anticipate things via their Google Now service; which I love very much. I know the targeted ads part is sucks, but it's like a double edged sword.
I also loved the clear design and communication of the site. But I think it would be more effective if they changed the position of "Your personal messages are monitored and the data is sold for advertising." to primary and "This happens to your ‘free’ email every day." to secondary copy in this part:
Lovely site and beautifully designed. Some screenshots of the webmail interface would go a long way however.
No calendaring, notes, reminders or file syncing... so a little slim on features, which is fine since this is just launching. But I couldn't really see anymore details from their roadmap indicating such features would be coming.
Not knocking these guys but I think I'll stick with Kolab Now. They have a great feature set and it's built on Open Source software.
"In order to provide the aforementioned services and to provide you with a Soverin account, we need your phone number."
I love the design of this page. Elegant and simple and communication is effective and clear. I love it!
Cool - I love seeing products that put the user's privacy first!
I'd be interested to see how this service compares with https://www.fastmail.com/, which is the great granddaddy of paid email services.
Fastmail has been around longer, but I'm concerned by the fact they have servers in the US. Their webmail UI is pretty terrible, price wise they're almost on par with Soverin. I'd pay for a year of Soverin sooner than I would for Fastmail
Edit: Fastmail supports a calendar too, which Soverin doesn't. Been a while I hadn't checked Fastmail, seems they have a new webmail interface and a pretty cool looking app. I'm not so sure anymore !
This is gorgeous. Also, love when this happens: http://i.imgur.com/OPok1vd.png
