“As you may know, we frequently review our products and features to ensure their effectiveness.After reviewing our ‘Way2SMS Mail’ feature, which allows you to ’send and receive emails’, we’ve found that it hasn’t had the impact we had hoped for. As a result, we’ve decided to retire this feature at the end of April.So,We request you to make necessary arrangements before 30th of April, as we will remove ‘WAY2SMS MAIL’ Tab from mail section at WAY2SMS.COM.
