Enter, the first free all-in-1 consumer communications service provider that enables you to manage those important communications using the Web and telephone. All your communication tools including voicemail, email, fax, calendar, address book, file sharing, and group information are stored in a central location for easy access from the Web and telephone. It's the only free service that reads e-mail, addresses, appointments, or to do lists over the phone. You can also use e-mail to send faxes and voicemail. Your uReach account also has a free personal 800 number that clients and prospects can use to leave you those important timely messages.

Translate Your Web Site for Free
If you have a Web site, you have the possibility of attracting prospects from all over the world. You can translate your HTML pages or the e-mail messages that you receive with Babel Fish, the free Web-based translation service from AltaVista and Systran Software.

Simply type in your URL, press a button and your HTML content is translated from English to one of five different languages (French, German, Italian, Portuguese or Spanish). When your HTML page appears in the translated version, view the source code, copy it out, paste it into your HTML editor and save it as a separate HTML document.

You can also translate from one of the eleven languages. Paste text into Babel Fish and it will translate the message. This can help you respond to an e-mail request from overseas.
