  1. How MeriEmail got started?

    MeriEmail is a new e-mail revolution that eliminates use of standard e-mail addresses. Instead, the user of MeriEmail selects a confidential screen name (nick name) for sending and receiving all online messages. Originally, MeriEmail was developed to shield children from unsolicited mails. Following the tragic event of September 11th, we believe that the system has much broader and more immediate applications by keeping terrorists out of all e-mail inboxes. We believe many junk mailers and others may soon attempt to spread fear through e-mail throughout the country by exploiting, especially our nation's children who are the most vulnerable. We believe MeriEmail could soon replace the way e-mails are sent and received. This new e-mail messaging system was developed by Computer Collaborative to block all junk mailers from reaching computers of their intended targets.

  2. What is the difference between e-mail and MeriEmail?

    Although, MeriEmail technology is not unique by itself but the application of this technology we believe is quite unique because MeriEmail has no e-mail address such as Rock@hotmail.com or Mushi@aol.com etc. Instead, the user of MeriEmail selects a confidential screen name/nick name (rock234, mushi897 etc.) for sending and receiving all online messages.
