Electronic Entertainment, February 1995
"Enter ConnectSoft's KidMail Connection. The Windows program works with CompuServe, MCI Mail, and Prodigy to make using e-mail child's play - even when it comes to addressing Internet messages. An adult, or 'supervisor', controls the options available to each KidMailer on the system, such as how much mail they're allowed to send and to whom they may send it."
"KidMail is a unique product that introduces kids to the world of high-tech communication. If your family already has a membership to an online service, it's a great complement. If you're not online yet, this may be just the boost you need, especially since the program comes with special offers for on-line service memberships."
CD-ROM Today, October 1995
"Even young children will find this program easy to use. A friendly, animated KidBox character offers spoken instructions, while big labeled click-on icons simplify operation. In the Communication Center, KidMailers can view previous messages sent or received, or log on to their e-mail service to check for new mail."
"Children will enjoy KidMail's simplicity, but adults may be frustrated by its setup quirks. For example, you can't test modem settings prior to starting a communication session; you can't register a KidMailer for simultaneous access to more than one e-mail service (the child must be registered separately for each account); and you can't edit a KidMailer's registration configuration."
"Once you've overcome these limitations, KidMail Connection really shines. The program not only simplifies the process of sending and receiving electronic mail, it also helps you to monitor the amount of time your child spends online. This is the perfect product for youngsters who want to 'reach out and touch' an electronic pen pal."
