Jurassic Park db webmail powered by Windows Live Mail
On July 1, 2009 we reestablished our free webmail service. The previous incarnation was severely flawed. As a result the previous webmail service was plagued with spammers and bots. That problem will not occur again. Starting today we have firmly secured a seat with Windows Live Mail to provide free email storage to the members of the Jurassic Park db!
For starters, you can create an @jpdatabase.com address with email storage that is 2 GB (2 gigabytes ~2048 megabytes), which for the most-part is dynamically increasing storage. If you require more space, Live Mail will allocate it according to your needs.

Well now, how do I create an account?
Only registered forum users can create an account. To create an @jpdatabase.com address, simply log into your Jurassic Park db forum account. Once you successfully log into your forum account, you will see “Webmail” across the main screen. Click the text, and that will bring you to a signup screen.

You can pick any username and password you like. It is recommended that you also fill in an alternate email address, just in case you require a password reset. We cannot reset passwords for users through email, though it might be possible through the Personal Messaging system.

Why do I keep getting the sign up screen after creating an account?
The link itself uses cookies to check if you have been to the site before. If you have, it will log you in automatically. If you cleared your cookies, you will be brought to the signup page. Simply navigate to http://mail.jpdatabase.com to login to your email account. Your username is the full email address, and the password you chose during signup.

Track packages referenced in your email from Hotmail

Emails that include a package tracking number will now light up in Hotmail thanks to ActiveViews, which automatically recognize the number and display the real time shipping status above the email, saving you a trip to the shipper’s website. The US Postal Service is fully supported, and with this new release, our new partner FedEx will be as well, with light versions for DHL and UPS that provide a link to the shipper’s website instead of full shipping details inside the email.



Chat with Facebook friends in Hotmail

We recently announced that Messenger would let you chat with your Facebook friends. We released this into the beta of our Messenger app for your PC a few weeks ago, and last week we added this into Messenger on your iPhone. We’re now adding this ability to chat with Facebook friends into Hotmail, making it easier for the 250 million Hotmail users that also use Facebook to stay in touch with those friends. Initially, this will be available in the US, UK, France, Brazil, Germany, and Russia, and we will continue to expand this offering to more regions over time.



Share photos more easily with expanded coverage and new features

Email is the most popular place to share photos, with 1.5 billion pictures shared each month on Hotmail alone. But attachment size limits have long made the process cumbersome. Over the summer, Hotmail became the first service to let you to send hundreds of large photos per email, up to 10 GB of photos per email, by sharing them as a new photo album on SkyDrive. Today, this option is only available in the US, but with this release, we are rolling it out worldwide.



We also know that there are times when sharing photos or files as regular attachments is necessary, so we’re increasing the total attachment size limit per email to 25MB, saving you time by letting you send what you want with fewer emails.

View more videos from inside Hotmail

Earlier this summer we helped people save time by viewing Hulu and YouTube videos within any email containing a link to content on those sites. With this release we’re supporting videos from two more fantastic partner sites, Dailymotion and Justin.tv.



Organize and find important email with Subfolders

If you like to use folders to organize your important emails and find them more quickly later, you have something in common with nearly 100 million other Hotmail “filers”. The new Hotmail lets you create folders inside of folders to more precisely manage your email, making it easier to quickly find an important message you’ve filed away.
