CruisersEmail Satellite Email

It’s easy to get started with CruisersEmail. Once it’s up and running, you can read and write your emails offline, saving airtime, then simply press a button. CruisersEmail will dial your satellite phone for you and hang up when it’s done. If your call drops, CruisersEmail can redial and simply pick up where it left off. And only CruisersEmail eliminates the back and forth of email protocols before using precious airtime.

CruisersEmail Email Features.

  • Faster. Cheaper. Better.  CruisersEmail uses only 5% of the data of a standard email program, on average. That means you save up to 95% on satellite airtime costs compared to using your email without XGate.
  • Your Email, your Way.  When you sign up for CruisersEmail, you’ll get a new email address.  Use this email address for no extra charge, with the XGate software, or your favorite email client such as Outlook or AppleMail.  If you’d like CruisersEmail to manage your regular email address so that you don’t need to switch email addresses, ask us about “CruisersEmail Plus”, or see our how-to articles on setting up CruisersEmail to work with Outlook, Apple Mail, Office365, and GSuite.
  • Virus Scanning and Spam Filters. CruisersEmail servers scan every message for viruses and SPAM, blocking them before they go over your satellite system, saving you airtime and keeping your machine clean. CruisersEmail also has full DES/PGP encryption for optimum security.
  • BigMail Feature.  Even though you’ve told them not to send you big attachments, that cousin just didn’t listen and insisted on sending you a huge email full of funny cat photos.  Instead of automatically spending valuable satellite airtime downloading that huge email, “BigMail” will give you the email subject and size, so you can choose to download it via satellite or wait until you have another internet connection.  Get the emails you need, when you need them, and save the funny cat photos until later.
  • CruisersEmail Speaks Your Language.  CruisersEmail software is available in more than 22 languages.
  • SMS Notifications.  Receive a SMS text message to your Iridium or Globalstar phone to alert you of new emails.
  • Blog from Anywhere.  Ask Sea-Tech how you can use CruisersEmail to update your blog!
