"The new XtraMail look is cleaner, more intuitive, and easier to navigate. We’ve had a look at what features people use the most, and brought them right up front so they can be accessed from the main page in a single click," says Rod Snodgrass.

Popular features that have been made more accessible include setting-up vacation messages, setting email signatures, searching for stored emails, managing mail forwarding, and setting display options.

The revamped XtraMail will also be the gateway to a range of next-generation email services that Xtra will be introducing in the coming months.
