*If you are connecting your satellite phone (Iridium 9555, 9575, IsatPhone, MSAT or Globalstar) to your computer via a USB or serial cable - we highly recommend you add our Sidekick Wi-Fi access point to greatly simplify setup and improve data transfer performance. If you already have a Wi-Fi device please contact us to verify if it is compatible. If you have any questions regarding this please don't hesitate to contact us.
Please note that using satellite data services with your PC may require that you use a Sidekick Wi-Fi / Firewall device. This device is highly recommended regardless for ease of connectivity and reliability if you are not using a Wi-Fi enabled satellite phone device such as an Iridium GO!, Globalstar SatFi, or BGAN terminal. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact us.

OCENSMail now includes powerful imbedded weather options and access to Award-Winning Grib Explorer Software
OCENSMail for the PC and Mac provides new pathways to OCENS near limitless trove of global weather data. Version 12 adds free weather options, extended weather forecasts, exclusive access to the newly available WeatherNet Unlimited service, and convenient pathways to benefit from OCENS’ WeatherNet PayGo libraries and transfer engine.
Three day forecasts of wind, wave and surface pressure are included in your subscription of OCENSMail. Just select one or more gribs and queue their requests in OCENSMail for relay with your next mail transfer. Requests are quickly fulfilled by OCENS’ Everon servers and returned as compressed email attachments.
‘Extended’ weather forecasts available in version 12 include up to 7 day GRIBs for wind, waves, surface pressure, precipitation, thunderstorms, cloud cover and air temperature. Like the free ‘Included’ products, requests are queued, submitted and fulfilled via the high-compression, rapid-relay OCENSMail transfer engine. A low monthly fee provides unrestricted access to the data.
OCENSMail users also have access to WeatherNet Unlimited. The new Unlimited service provides unbounded access to WeatherNet weather data for less than $1 per day. Clients can install WeatherNet Unlimited (or WeatherNet PayGO if they desire) from within OCENSMail and begin to benefit from WeatherNet’s immense weather library in just minutes. Unlike the grib focus of the Included and Extended options, WeatherNet Unlimited and PayGO provide global access to grib and legacy products such as weather charts, text forecasts, buoy info, and satellite imagery. They also are the only sources for some of the most advanced weather data yet available to any user, remote or not, such as ASCAT wind scatterometry, RAP and HRRR very high resolution content and NDFD digital wind and wave data.
Version 12 provides 7-day access to OCENS award-winning GRIB Explorer software analytics and graphics. Users can purchase GRIB Explorer for permanent use at a discounted rate from within the software or continue with a GRIB Explorer Lite version after the 7-day trial.
Running OCENSMail on your computer
? Use this powerful third party tool on your computer to reduce image file sizes when sending via your satellite phone connection!
Using the OCENSMail app or OneMail app on your iOS
Checking your primary email account with an OCENSMail account.
It is easy to read and reply to your regular / primary email with your OCENSMail account. Just set your primary email account to auto forward a copy of any new incoming messages to your ocens.com address. Messages will then be automatically forwarded to your OCENS account. You will benefit from the automatic file compression and large file size filter protections that are built into the service.
Then when using the built in default Thunderbird email client you can set the "Reply-to" email address as your primary email address. This will be the address that emails are send back to when the recipient clicks the Reply button after reading the message you sent them. This allows you to conduct business as usual as if you are home or at work rather than having to inform everyone of a new email address and that you are relying on a satellite connection.
