Bigstring Features Controllable Email

ScreenshotHave you ever wished you could delete an email message that you already sent? Or send an email that the recipient wouldn’t be able to print? These and other features – such as self-destructing email and messages that you can edit after sending – are features of the free web-based email accounts available from Bigstring.

Of course, it’s a bit of a trick: the actual message sent contains just a link to an image-based version of your message stored on Bigstring’s servers. A sufficiently-motivated recipient can always take a screen shot to save the state of the email at any point. But for everyday users, the bar might be high enough to make a difference. Bigstring also offers their own IM gateway (to AIM, Yahoo!, MSN, and GTalk) that will create “self-destructing” instant messages using the same technology.
