What is Gaggle Mail?
Gaggle Mail is the simplest way for small groups to stay in touch via email.
Everyone is part of a small group. Maybe a book club or football team or a yoga class. Or maybe your children’s play group or dance class. Maybe you’re part of a residents association or neighbourhood watch.
If you can use email you can use Gaggle Mail – and that goes for everyone in your group.
Gaggle Mail is the absolute simplest way to setup and maintain an email group. We give you your own permanent @gaggle.email address that everyone in your group can use to contact everyone else in the group. Simple.
