Curious to know how it all started... was there some inflection point that made the Basecamp team decide to build a new email product?

Oh yeah, I think the most popular payment method was phone bill based. That required partnering with various carriers or other companies, which was harder for smaller startups.

The memory gives me shivers. Debugging across devices was very painful.

Distribution is a strong word, but it was done by…

No, price wasn't an issue, the main deal breaker was that all the software I tried had too much overhead.

Curious to know what others are using and recommend?
