We have teamed with Google to bring you customized versions of Google's excellent tools that are designed especially for the southern Maryland community.

We are currently offering:

  • Google Mail with a somd.us address, e.g. your.name@somd.us. You can also download mail via POP and read it with your mobile phone. You can also use @.somd.biz interchangeably in your email address, e.g. your.name@somd.biz will work exactly the same as your.name@somd.us. Use one or both-it's your choice.
  • Google Calendar - Create and share calendars with other southern Marylanders.
  • Google Talk - Chat with other southern Marylanders and Google Talk users world-wide. Includes top-notch voice and voice mail.
  • More coming in the future...

  • You can share you calendar with other local users and organizations. You can even embed one or more of your calendars directly into a webpage, no matter where it is hosted. See an example here. We will shortly allow you to integrate the somd.com community calendars with your personal calendar.

Who Can Benefit from this Service?

  • Non-profit community organizations and churches who don't have a dedicated domain name. Now you can get a permanent email account that identifies you as a southern Maryland organization. No more need to use your member's personal accounts or go through the hassle of changing addresses every time you change ISPs. You can also use the calendar to coordinate internal events among your members.
  • Small businesses who don't have a dedicated domain name. Now you can get a permanent email account that identifies you as a southern Maryland business. No more need to use a free email account like Yahoo or HotMail that spells "Cheap" or go through the hassle of changing addresses every time you change ISPs. How much business have you already lost because your potential customer's email was lost in overly paranoid mail filters?
  • Any individual who wants a lifetime email address with a top-shelf calendar and integrated IM tool. Communicate with friends and family around the world with the voice communications for free. Leave voice mail if they're not on-line. The sound quality to other countries is often far superior to telephoning. Works well even on slow dial-up accounts.
