Wink Interesting ways to use fastmail

What do you use your fastmail for ?

I use it the following ways :-

1) As a web-based email client

2) Web-based file storage

3) Web-based zipping utility !

Web based zipping utility? OK..I'll bite. What's up with that? I mean..why would you need one and what do you do with it?

I use Fastmail mainly for..e-mail. Although I have started a to do list in Drafts and there are some files I keep on there on purpose. I've always used my web based e-mail as a place to keep passwords and registration information.

Well, I was using a friend's computer the other day and it didnt' have winzip. Rather than waiting for it to download, I uploaded the file, which was small ( we just wanted to make it smaller ) , and downloaded it from my fast mail account.

Wahlah ! Instant zipping .

It's great for use in public libraries which have fast connections but don't allow you to install any software.

When I had a fastmail account (BASIC -- GOOD INTERFACE) I used it for my email and I used my storage for some things also..... Sharing files and all...... I liked how it showed the IP that accessed it

Sadly I havent had a good of an email since

I use Fastmail mostly for email (both web UI and local client), but I use their file storage capabilities too. The EMD Members photo gallery comes to mind..

You know, to be honest, I have no idea how long DBH maintained it. He probably started it too, but I'm not entirely clear on that. I'm not even sure how long ago I began its' 'transfer and resurrection'. Five or six years at least I guess..

eta: this post I made in 2012 brings it up to closer to a decade..

Dave started the original gallery in 2003 apparently..

Unfortunately, the original page no longer exists, and is not even available on archive.org. To satisfy your curiosity, the original url was http://dbh.fateback.com/emd.html
