Santa Barbara, CA, January 4, 2000. Tenon Intersystems is shipping a new version if its industrial-strength mail server for Power Macintosh. Tenons mail server, called NetTen, is based on Post.Office, a powerful email server, developed by Software.com, Inc. Software.com is the uncontested leader in email server software, having sold licenses for more than fifty-seven million email mailboxes worldwide. With NetTen, Macintosh users can enjoy Software.coms powerful mail server software.
Post.Office was designed with strong emphasis on security, scalability, and ease-of-use, setting the standard for email server solutions. Post.Office is in use at tens of thousands of organizations worldwide, supporting millions of users. By leveraging their existing "UNIX virtual machine" technology, Tenon, under a licensing agreement with Software.com, has brought Post.Office to Mac OS in the form of a Macintosh application.
NetTen 1.4 is the most robust, scalable, easy-to-administer, high-performance, multidomain mail server solution for Mac OS. NetTen includes Domain Name Service (DNS) and Post.Office, running in Tenons sophisticated execution environment and taking advantage of Tenons native fast file system. Running a mail server on Power Macs in Tenons unique environment means that administrators no longer have to be concerned with Macintosh file system limitations. NetTen can support an unlimited number of multihomed mail accounts, and services over 10,000 messages per minute. In addition, NetTen provides robust, anti-SPAM features and web-based administration in a single package that is easy to install, configure and maintain.

NetTen supports POP3 and IMAP4 (Internet Message Access Protocol), without having to make any changes on the server itself. This enables users to read their email from different client machines at different times, giving globe-trotting, computer-hopping users more flexibility in reading and managing their mail. NetTen has the ability to pre-screen incoming messages, discarding unwanted mail according to a sophisticated set of filtering rules, including support for MAPS (the Mail Abuse Prevention System) RBL (Realtime Blackhole List). A NetTen system can be easily configured to be MAPS RBL compliant.
Designed to ease the administrative burden of maintaining an Internet mail server, NetTen includes "fill-in-the-blank" web-based forms for remote management. By using fill-in-the-blank email or web-forms for managing user accounts and configuring the system, the administrator has access to the mail server from anywhere on the Internet. Users can also benefit from the ease of web forms management to change certain aspects of their email account, such as vacation messages and directory information, giving more control to the user and reducing the work of the administrator.
NetTen 1.4 can be purchased immediately and is available directly from Tenon. NetTen is downloadable from Tenons Web site,/products/netten, with a built-in 14 day license. The product is priced at $495 for an unlimited number of mail accounts.
