WHAT IS FUZZMAIL? Fuzzmail records the act of writing and lets you send it as an email. Dynamic changes, typoes, pauses and writeovers are captured and communicated. We created fuzzmail because we wanted a more emotionally expressive alternative to email, so that an emailed love letter does not have to look the same as a business letter.

HOW DO I USE IT? Fuzzmail is free! Just start typing a message and fuzzmail will record what you type. When you're done, click "send" to stop recording and send your message. The recipient will get a private web link to read the message replayed in the way that you typed it. A copy of the Fuzzmail you wrote will be sent to you at your email address.

REQUIREMENTS: Safari 1+, IE 4+ or Netscape 6+ browser with javascript enabled.

PRIVACY: We do not share your email address with anyone. The fuzzmails stored on our server will be kept confidential, but may be referenced by the webmasters to improve our system or for academic research purposes.

EXAMPLES: Share your inspiration! If you think your Fuzzmail is beatutiful, funny, creative, or just plain good, let us know and we'll post it on the examples list (anonymously, of course).
