The makers behind the project management software Basecamp have launched its new product: an email hosting service called "HEY" which the company describes as a "love letter to email" and "a redo, a rethink, a simplified, potent reintroduction of email". "HEY" is currently invite-only until July 2020.

Basecamp CEO Jason Fried announced the launch on Twitter, writing: "Two years of work comes alive today. Couldn’t be more proud of our team. It wasn’t easy, but it was incredibly fun. And today we get to show the world what we’ve been working on. Email’s new heyday is here."
