reMail Search Status Update

The people want powerful full-text email search on their iPhone.*

They want it so badly, in fact, that our servers were running red hot yesterday with signups and new users - many more than I had expected.

I turned off new signups for now. For the days, I'll be working on adding more servers, storage capacity, and resolving some bottlenecks in our code. I'm pretty sure I'll be able to add more accounts by Thursday morning Pacific time, but I can't quite guarantee it.

Right now, if you download reMail Search off the iTunes Store, you'll see a screen saying that we disabled signups for now. It will also ask you to join our waiting list. I'll send out notifications to people on the waiting list once I've added more capacity, so please do add yourself. I've also included a few questions about your email behavior to better understand our users.

Thanks for your patience!
