KidsEmail.org is a completely parent-controlled e-mail inbox for your little ones.
My 9 year old loves to e-mail back and forth with his grandparents, aunts, and uncles. Usually I spend a few minutes each morning screening his e-mails before he reads them, just in case !
But the great thing about kidsemail.org, is that you can set a 'safe list' of people that your child can receive e-mail from.
It also contains many other great features, such as:
You choose what security features you want for your child. You can make it so that everything has to pass your eyes before theirs, or make it completely open for them (great for older kids, since you can still see their mails).
- Parental mail queue
This feature allows you to screen your child's e-mails before you read them. You can see the entire mail, and if it seems good to you, you can have it forwarded to their inbox. You can also choose to have a message sent to the sender telling them that their e-mail has been put in queue!
- Contact list
You can choose whether or not you want your child to only receive mail from people in their contact list or not. This keeps junk mails from being seen by little eyes that shouldn't! You ca also choose if you'd like your child to be able to edit their contact list or not.
You can choose whether or not links will be active in e-mails.
Choose whether or not to allow attachments to e-mails, or select only certain kinds of attachments to be allowed. This one is great not only for safety, but preventing viruses!
- Outgoing e-mails
You can choose the option of your child sending e-mails only to his or her contact list, or to anyone. A great feature!
- 'Bad word' filter!
Choose if you'd like to filter out fowl language.
Your child also has the option to add great colorful backgrounds(just two are shown here, there are many!) to their e-mails, asnd customize their fonts and add emoctions to their hearts content (something my son loves!).

With all these options, I think I'll be breathing a bit better knowing I can see what's going on in his inbox and have a little more say in what goes on!
