      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      I've often searched through the internet and read articles, on how to make money on the internet. I have to say there aren't all that many sites that I've found, but there is one site I would urge you to use, and that's mail round. Ok you aren't going to make a fortune, but if like me, you send a lot of emails, then I suggest you download it and give it a try. It stamps your emails with adverts, which brightens up your emails, and they pay you if any of your friends sign up with them. It's easy to download, and easy to use. I would certainly say go for it

        So, you've signed up to this service, spent time filling in your details and sat back looking forward to reaping in the benefits and then your friends with email at home decide not to email you because they don't want large adverts in their emails (bandwidth being expensive and all), friends with work email where the emails you send are bounced because their firewall doesn't like the attachment (it looks too much like a virus), and your boss is coming down on you coz you sent an email with an advert in it to a customer (and the advert may have been for a competitor).

        Disadvantages

        This banner is bright and clear but does not give you that much information which is not bad because it sparks off an inquisitiveness which can attract people to follow the link through The animation does not look that good and this banner is a bit slow and this may cause people to loose interest in it. It has a kind of summer theme with the butterfly and the blue background which attracts attention to it but it looks a bit fat.

        Disadvantages

        I think the banner could work well if the colours green and blue didn't clash. I like the fact it looks fun and cheerful though. It has a simplistic affect, but lacks colour co-ordinated design. I like the fact that the purse/bag looks like its taking off, could be a psychological approach. Telling you if you click this banner you can earn dosh and your purse strings, money problems whatever can fly away. All round easy site though, Nothing particularly eye catching.

        Disadvantages

        The mail around button , in my opinion, is functional, clear and easily understood. These things all comprise a decent service, and I would have no complaints with the layout of the service.Having used other , less clear functions on several web sites which do nothing other than frustrate, I can say that this does "exactly what is says on the tin" so to speak. If only all other functions and services were as clear, then life would be simple , for the itinerant surfer.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          On first glance Mailround looks like an excellent idea. In practice it is clumsy and awkward to use. It requires you to switch to sending HTML emails, many email programs do not cope with HTML emails well. Sending and receiving HTML can also leave you open to receiving unscrupulous emails and viral attack (neither of which I am claiming Mailround is). I have used Mailround and I have received emails from people using it, one problem is that it is difficult to reply to emails that use this (especially if you want to reply as plain text). What happens is your mail is sent blank! On the plus side, you get paid for using it and it does look cool in your emails. Personally though I would steer clear of this product, the minuses outweigh the plusses.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          The MailRound button is just designed to spike the curiosity isn't it? Like most people, I took the bait, signed up to this company and haven't regretted it since! First off and of utmost importance, this program actually DELIVERS money which immediately places it a few steps above the numerous other 'pay-for-e-mail' type schemes. At the moment, this is just a small £3.50 but this was only for one month (with no effort expended on my part) so the prospects look good. How it works:- 1.Sign up 2.Download a widget type programme, 'Mailman' which sits on you task bar. This appends advertising 'stamps' to the side or bottom of outgoing and incoming e-mails. 3. Send and receive e-mails in the normal manner. (You can choose with each address whether or not to stamp the mail.) A great bonus is that this works on webmail accounts such as Yahoo and hotmail, especially good to use with secondary e-mail accounts (all the junk mail gets stamped!!!!) This system works great for PCs , but Mac users and AOL lose out. Similarly, it's not possible to load it on to networked corporate systems. Accounts are credited at the end of the month and money allocated depending on the amount of stamps sent and the number of times those advertisers have been visited. There are real advantages to this programme:-money in the account is a real possibility and this is redeemable for a good selection vouchers and cash options. Aesthetically, it is a nice site with good support and simple layout. Similarly the stamps are attractive and non intrusive, so no real qualms about referring friends to join the system (for which you get £2 a friend). Whilst it is a great opportunity to earn money off all that junk mail, the sponsors are also varied and British based, hence useful. Problems occur if your main e-mail is on a network and you are not the administrator and it is unclear until the end of th
          e month, how much money you have earned. As well as having no 'counting' type mechanism on the website, there is also no publication of how the money is allocated. Lastly, even though little effort is needed, even the lowest level of compensation needs some fairly heavy e-mail usage. I was mobilising 15-25 e-mails a day for my bronze level pay of £3.50!! All in all, I would recommend this service to anyone with their own computer and an internet connection. In short if you compare £3.50 in one month to the US$1.15 for 6 months in some of my other schemes, Mailround definitely comes out on top!!

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            When i first saw the mailround button i was intrigued to find out exactly what it was all about. The button itself is shaped like a stamp and depicts an animation of a moth flying out of a puse before displaying the caption "Penniless? Mailround pays you to email". Normally I'm not a big fan of banners and buttons which are animated due to the fact that they slow down the loading of the page but I'm getting bored with that gripe and companies don't seem to heed our pleas so... Anyway, intrigued that I could be paid to send emails I decided to check out the site and clicked on the button. Now, obviously the advertisers must be doing something right because I usually ignore banners and buttons altogether unless they are especially annoying. Clicking the button leads to a desfriptive screen on the mailround webiste outlining exactly what the service offers. Basically you download a small program whcih then attaches 'stamps' to your emails displaying small adverts...adverts which you get paid to send. The points you generate from this can be redeemed for voucher for Amazon.co.uk Pizza Hut Marks & Spencer Tesco Marriott Hotels David Lloyd although more will probably be added as things take off. The idea is great and I expect it to take off in a big way although I don'y yet know how profitable it will actually be but at the end of the day its not much of a problem to have this tiny program installed and sit there making me money for doing the things I do anyway so it'll remain regardless I expect. Overall, the button(because this is a review of the button) is highly effective in my opinion - it got me to click on it, visit and register at the site - what more do they want than that?

              What a great idea ? Why didn't they come up with it sooner ? I think mailround is a pretty neat idea. Given the number of e-mails that I do send each day (and thats quite a lot) & considering the fact that it is an activity that I do enjoy,it is pretty awesome to actually get paid for doing it !!! I'd recommend the use of mailround to every one. In fact, I've already recommended to all my friends (and even that pays !).

                Mailround is a good idea for the casual email. It generates a renue only showing a small stamp and message which is what your normally get my using a web based service like yahoo or hotmail. All you have to do is download a program and you can choose what stamps you will send to your friends. You do not earn that much but some is beter than nothing and there are some good offers. I think it a good service and thanks for dooyoo for providing it.

                I fell for the lure of that button.I clicked it thinking yeh great i could earn money just for sending emails! When i get to their site I find that the idea is that mail round give you small program to download which stamps all of your messages with a spam banner caled a "stamp". I was still thinking about using this mailround, so i went and looked for how much money i would get for each email i sent.But,.. to no avail.All the help page tells me is that users are rewarded on how the top so many emailers, each getting a different amount of money, ranging from a "bronze" to a "platinum" award.This sounds really good guys but i want to be sure of how many emails i have to send to get my cash!I thought i would try it out anyway, so i filled in the form and clicked submit.It then tells me that mailround does not work with my email provider!My email provider is AOL!!!I think about half of the US and half of the UK use AOL.. what a loss of potential customers.Only adults can use mailround?Bad luck mailround, that has again narrowed down you market! I would have liked to actually use mailround and comment on it but i was too scared off by the registering proceedure! If someone has actually used mailround a comment here would be greatly apprieciated
