Did you know that you can use Meetin.gs entirely via email? From the very beginning we have concentrated on integrating Meetin.gs as frictionlessly as possible with email. The browser interface is optional to use and that is why using Meetin.gs makes sense even with those who usually reject invitations to new services.
This blog post serves as your guide for using Meetin.gs via email.
