Created by 410 Labs, and inspired by the short messages sent via SMS and Twitter, Shortmail provides you with an email account that is limited to 500 characters or less.

According to the Shortmail blog:

Shortmail is totally new -- redesigned from the ground up -- and gives you an email identity where relationships are magically better. In a sense, it's a peaceful garden where relationships can flourish amid the mean streets of the Internet.

As the name implies, Shortmail is email -- only shorter. We've applied the idea of length-limitation to email. All Shortmail messages must be less than 500 characters. We know that people are becoming more accustomed to length-limited communications: Twitter and SMS messaging demonstrate that.
