The winner of the 2019 Ocean Navigator Chuck Husick Marine Technology Award is the OneMail version 3 satellite email app from OCENs Satellite Systems and Service in Des Moines, Wash. The OneMail V.3 app allows you to access your Gmail, Yahoo, HotMail, Exchange, and other email accounts via satellite or low bandwidth connections such as Iridium GO, Globalstar SatFi, Thuraya IP, and others.
Contributing editor and circumnavigator Ellen Massey Leonard says this about OneMail V.3: “I'm a huge fan… as it's the only satellite email service out there that allows direct access to 'your' email accounts (such as Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo, etc). It's made life a whole lot easier for us on board as it allows [my husband] Seth to access his work email without interruption. I think it's getting a lot of traction with Iridium GO users as well as traditional sat phone people.”
