1. What makes eMcCoy different?
eMcCoy uses is for "McCoy" lovers only! You get the benifits of all McCoyPottery.Com has to offer and more! And because eMcCoy includes 50 megabytes of storage, a typical user won't ever have to worry about deleting mail. Everything just gets archived so it can be found again if needed.
There are other differences in the way eMcCoy provides access to your email. For example, eMcCoy automatically groups an email and the replies to it as a conversation. That means you always see a message in its proper context. And there are no pop-ups or banner ads in eMcCoy, just relevant text ads and links to related pages. eMcCoy's other distinctive features include an anti-spam/anti-virus system, and a system for filtering your mail as it comes into your inbox.
2. How much does eMcCoy cost?
eMcCoy is a free service and includes 50 megabytes of storage with each account.
3. How do I sign up? When can I get a eMcCoy account?
We're currently only offering eMcCoy as part of a preview release and limited test. We don't have details on when eMcCoy will be made more widely available, as that depends in part on the results of the test. If you're interested in receiving updates on eMcCoy, submit your email address using the form at the bottom of this page. And you can check out a sneak peek of eMcCoy here.
4. Is eMcCoy available in other languages?
Presently, the eMcCoy interface is only available in English. However, we're committed to making eMcCoy available to as many people in as many languages as possible. And eMcCoy accounts can already be used to read and send email in most languages.
5. What are eMcCoy's system requirements?
eMcCoy currently supports the following browsers:
- Safari 1.2.1 and newer (OSX)
- Omniweb any version (OSX)
- Mozilla 1.7b and newer (OSX, Macintosh Classic, Linux, Windows)
- Microsoft IE 5.5 and newer (Windows) Netscape 7.1 and newer (Windows, Macintosh, Linux) Mozilla 1.4 and newer (Windows, Macintosh, Linux)
- Mozilla Firefox 0.8 and newer (Windows, Macintosh, Linux)
6. Does eMcCoy support automatic forwarding and POP3 access?
Not at the moment, but McCoyPottery.Com believes in helping people access information whenever and however they want to do so. In the future you will be able to access eMcCoy messages from non-eMcCoy accounts for free or at a nominal fee.
7. What about spam?
McCoyPottery.Com is committed to keeping unwanted messages out of your inbox. eMcCoy includes a sophisticated spam filter that we're continuing to improve. The Report Spam link in eMcCoy is a way for users to help with this effort. It removes spam from the inbox and sends valuable data to the eMcCoy team working on spam blocking.
8. Are there ads in eMcCoy?
There are no pop-ups or banner ads in eMcCoy. Like McCoyPottery.Com search results pages, eMcCoy does include relevant text ads on the right side of the page. The matching of ads to content is a completely automated process performed by computers. No humans read your email to target the ads, and no email content or other personally identifiable information is ever provided to advertisers.
Ads are matched using the same technology that powers the McCoyPottery.Com Store Search and Site Search Features.
10. Why is McCoyPottery.Com offering email?
McCoyPottery.Com's mission is to bring McCoy Lovers and Art Pottery Lovers together, and provide information about McCoy that is universally useful and accessible. For many people, email contains valuable information that can be difficult to retrieve. We believe we can help with that.
