Upgrading fixed again

Ooops, we broke some of the upgrading code, so some users trying to upgrade would just get an error message. And just after we started a special pricing. Doh!

It should be all fixed now, so feel free to upgrade away!

Full/Enhanced special price now until end of May

Coinciding with the addition of unobtrusive advertising to the web interface for Guest users, we’re offering a special to new users and existing users upgrading their accounts to Full/Enhanced for the remainding days of April and through May. For the next month, we’re taking $5 off the price of all Full and Enhanced subscriptions, which means that each year is now only US$14.95 for a Full account and US$34.95 for an Enhanced account.

Unobtrusive advertising added to guest accounts

We are currently running a trial to investigate the effectiveness of some advertising on Guest accounts only. Paid subscribers will remain free of advertising. If this trial is successful, we hope to be able to be able to invest the revenue gained back into the company to improve our services and features.

We’re using single-line text advertisements, so there are no graphics to slow things down.

Currently we’re only showing advertising for FastMail.FM features and upgrades, but once we’re confident that the mechanism is working properly, we’ll be introducing external advertisements.
