What was the motivation behind building this website?
How do I verify the creation of my new account?
Check your email account inbox for the verification message, open the message, and follow the instructions in the email to activate your account.
How do I sign in to my account after it has been verified?
Simply go to the www.heavensemail.com website and click on the "Sign In" link on the left-hand menu. Log in using the email address and password you selected when you created your account.
Can I log in to my Heavens's Email account before I have verified my email address?
No, if you log in to www.heavensemail.com before you verify your email address, you will be directed to a page telling you how you to verify your account.
Where does my message go once it has been sent?
Once transmitted, a FM signal heads toward the horizon. The message will degenerate as it travels along just like a normal FM radio station.
What type of encryption is used to scramble the message before it is sent?
When the message is received by our server, we generate a random secret key and use it to encrypt the message. After encrypting, we throw the secret key away (so that it can't be used to decrypt the message) and store the message in our database awaiting transmission.
The encrypted message is transmitted to the transmitter site and then erased from the main server (we keep the to, from, and subject parts of the message for a short time after transmission to show in your account details).
The transmitter site translates the encrypted message to an audio signal representing the contents and broadcasts it via FM transmitter.
After it finishes transmitting, the remote site deletes its copy of the message and then updates the main server.
What does the message sound like when it is transmitted?
It basically sounds like random static, since it's completely encrypted. If you're using a modern browser, you should be able to play a sample message below. This sample message is fairly long (about 80000 characters) - shorter messages will result in quicker transmissions.
Where is the transmitter located?
The transmitter and our Information Center is located in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan Canada
Can I tune my home or vehicle radio to the fm channel being used to transmit the messages and listen in or hear the messages being sent?
No, this is not possible
What happens when I send a message?
Once a message is sent, it is received by our main server and immediately scrambled and put into a queue to be transmitted.
No messages will be read or available for review by the staff of Departed Connections INC
