AbsoluteFuture, Inc. Reports Progress on SafeMessage(TM) Sales and Marketing

Apr 17, 2001, 01:00 ET from AbsoluteFuture.com, Inc.

    BELLEVUE, Wash., April 17 /PRNewswire/ --
 AbsoluteFuture.com, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board:   AFTI) announces that it is
 making significant progress in sales and installing trial versions of
 SafeMessage in the USA and overseas.  In particular, it has signed firm
 commitments for the installation of SafeMessage in South Korea, is setting up
 sales agents in the United Kingdom, Central Europe, the Middle East and
 Central America.  SafeMessage is also at an advanced stage of trials with a
 number of multi-national organizations that should lead to sales orders in the
 near future.
     In South Korea, the Company has signed a deal with SAPPA International
 Corp. a division of TRICOM, Inc. for them to acquire SafeMessage and the
 exclusive right to market SafeMessage in South Korea.   The initial order was
 for $25,000.  Graham Andrews, President and CEO of AbsoluteFuture said, "This
 is the first of our deals to be signed with an overseas software distributor.
 SAPPA expects to have sales in the first year of at least $75,000.  As a major
 software distributor, we hope that they will exceed that goal."
     As well as continuing sales of the Internet version of SafeMessage to
 U.S. companies and organizations, SafeMessage as a server-based product is
 also being tried out by some significant companies and organizations.  Those
 with exposure to overseas countries are showing a very positive response,
 including a number of missionary and aid organizations, where SafeMessage
 helps the worker overseas to communicate freely with his home and colleagues.
     "SafeMessage(TM) is completely unlike other products in this space.  It
 does not patch holes in Outlook, nor do we rely on third-party browser-based
 mail servers.  SafeMessage is a commercial-grade self-contained highly-secure
 NSA-strength communications vehicle designed specifically to do one thing
 -- to keep highly confidential communications private," said Graham Andrews.
 "Because of its unique features, SafeMessage is being tested by organizations
 before giving a firm order for wide scale deployment.  Trials are going well.
 As a result, while sales for the first quarter of 2001 were relatively small,
 we expect them to ramp up rapidly from here throughout the year."
