    XGate Features

    It’s easy to get started with XGate. Once it’s up and running, you can read and write your emails offline, saving airtime, then simply press a button – XGate apps will dial your satellite phone for you and hang up when it’s done. If your call drops, XGate can redial and simply pick up where it left off. And XGate eliminates the back and forth of email protocols before using precious airtime.

    Faster. Cheaper. Better.

    XGate uses only 5% of the data of a standard email program, on average. That means you save up to 95% on satellite airtime costs compared to using your email without XGate.

    Your Email, Your Way

    XGate gives you an included XGate address. There are even options to set the send and receive addresses so others see whatever email address you would like to show them.

    Virus Scanning and Spam Filters

    XGate servers scan every message for viruses and SPAM, blocking them before they go over your satellite system, saving you airtime and keeping your machine clean. XGate also has full DES/PGP encryption for optimum security.


    XGate “Bigmail” lets you know when someone sends you a large file, shows you the subject and size, and lets you decide to download it over your satellite connection or wait until you have access to another connection. You get the files you need when you need them, and save the cat videos for later.


    Point Weather

    Now XGate subscribers get free marine weather forecasts right on their mobile devices with XGate and your satellite service. The current XGate apps for iOS and Android now provide the compressed weather information you need most via your satellite connection.

    XGate compresses email up to 20x compared to standard email services. This lets you send and receive messages quickly and affordably over satellite and remote cellular services. This means that any regular weather information can be sent to you via email without firing up broadband Internet over a satellite connection, potentially saving you dollars per megabyte and certainly saving you time and headaches.
