The Post Company of Iran, which has been tasked with setting up a national email system, has announced users can access their personal email accounts via cellphones. Speaking to Mehr News Agency, Kazem Mirzaei, director general of the company's Information Technology Center, said, "This service is accessible on cellphones using either Android, Mobile Windows or IOS operating systems." Mirzaei said that to use the service, subscribers need to enter in their cellphone browsers.  However, to set up an account, users currently need to use a desktop computer. "Not only is this version compatible with mobiles and interactive, but it also allows passwords to be recovered as well," he said. Mirzaei noted that a new version needs to be developed and enhanced before they can progress with the application. "One of the new services the national postal company is developing is a live chat service for customers. The company also plans to design specific mobile applications, which will take some time," he said.
