1. THE BEGINNING

This innovation came to life when…

Atmail is the brainchild of Ben Duncan, who in 1999, built the first commercial webmail in the world – Atmail – when he was just 17 years old. When the software was launched online, it was immediately apparent that there was a lot of demand for it.

In 2009, Ben converted a Land Rover Defender into a high-tech mobile office and spent one year travelling around Australia, while managing the business online and developing code on the go. Since then, Atmail’s growth has been organic and profitable year on year. There have been many improvements to the software since it was launched in 1999.
