  1. Serge here from TokBox. Just wanted to pipe in here to offer somewhat of an explanation… Due to the massive amount of people using our site this morning , we did have a problem for a few minutes with multiple emails going out for each invitation sent. The problem was quickly identified and fixed (within 15 minutes) and we don’t expect the issue to resurface.

    We’re sorry for any inconvenience this has caused. We’ve been very excited with the great feedback and response our beta product has received so far (with the exception of this email issue), and look forward to keeping our users happy and satisfied

    It’s now around 3 hours later, and I just got 18 from the same person. Perhaps you should try a more thorough fix.

  3. Amen to that Alex. Serge I am still getting spammed like mad. I just blocked Tokbox from my mail server. hate to do this, but this is something you guys need to fix asap.

  4. Hi Om and Alex,

    these are emails that have already left the system and took longer to get delivered through the network so we can’t control them. We killed our mail server as soon as we discovered the issue (after ~15 min) so no emails could have left TokBox after that

    Keep in mind – this is still a beta product but we fix each issue we find very rapidly


  5. Om – spot on here. New start-ups like WooMe.com and some adult sites have already utilized the same technology to deliver in-browser communication propositions. I’m not on WooMe beta, but from what i hear the quality is “pretty good.”

    Tokbox going after skype with its broad play, but not sure if in-browser is enough differentiation to take on the embedded leader.

  6. TalkBox is awesome! Thank you for creating this service and making communicating with others easier and cheaper. I can talk to Russia and India real time and without paying a dime! I got spammed also, but as long as you guys are on the ball fixing the problem I am ok with that.

  7. Hello There,

    I tried to check and tested, still its having some problems, i am testing it, but its a nice idea and already UwannaDeal.com people are thinking to add this concept to close deals and to talk to people using tokbox.

    Yes its great idea and http://www.uwannadeal.com is highly impressed with this concept and it will ease our customers to talk and close the deals.
    UwannaDeal has 5000 hits every day and 5000+ members in first 2 weeks of launch. I hope this site will merge with tokbox to get more customers.

    Thank you,
