OnMail is offering four different plans. There’s a free Personal plan, which offers an @onmail.com username and includes 10GB of storage and 100MB attachments. Access to the free plan will be distributed on a rolling basis to customers who signed up back when OnMail first was announced back in April, while the paid plans will be open immediately to anyone interesting in subscribing.

Additionally, OnMail is limiting access to highly-coveted @onmail.com usernames with fewer than eight characters to its Professional and Business plans.OnMail is a starter as a service for now, it’ll be primarily available through a browser webapp, although the Edison Mail apps on iOS, Android, and Mac will be able to access the accounts too. But more full-featured support for OnMail within those apps won’t arrive until later this year, and dedicated OnMail apps aren’t arriving until next year.
