Santa Barbara, CA, September 4, 2002. Post.Office 3.5.3 version 711, the premier mail server and list server for Mac OS X, was released today with enhanced SPAM filtering and IMAP support. Tenon is shipping an enhanced version of Post.Office that includes sophisticated header and message body-based regular expression filtering to let Postmasters effectively manage the ever growing deluge of unwanted eMail. The powerful SPAM filtering and the ability of users to "self-administer" their own mail accounts make Post.Office a favorite with Postmasters and ISPs.
"The onslaught of SPAM has been a real problem," said COO, Elton Darby of E.H. Darby & Co. "We were forced to migrate from WebSTAR's mail server to get control of the excessive text and graphic SPAM that was proliferating through our five domains. We reviewed and tested several packages and Tenon's Post.Office was by far the most flexible. It gave us total control to customize SPAM filters to fit our needs."
The new package includes sample SPAM filters, which are created using Post.Office's web-based GUI. Also included are scripts to import user account information from a range of mail servers (e.g. EIMS, SIMS, WebSTAR mail). If user account information can be exported into a text file, Tenon's script can import the accounts into Post.Office. Likewise, lists from LetterRip can be imported into the Post.Office list server.
Post.Office was designed from the ground up for ease of use, with an uncomplicated, user-friendly interface. The anywhere, anytime Web forms provide seamless navigation through the many Post.Office features. System administrators can make changes from anywhere on the Internet using Web forms with simple fill-in-the-blank fields and pop-up options. Postmasters can use Post.Office to easily administer enterprise email systems. End users can change their passwords, add 'vacation' messages, aliases, and mail forwarding instructions via the web-based GUI.
Post.Office is offered on a sliding scale, depending upon how many mailboxes and mailing lists are needed. A range of packages are available to cater to Universities, corporate enterprises, and ISPs. A starter package is available for $295, supporting 100 mailboxes and 10 lists. A free version of Post.Office, limited to 10 mailboxes and 2 mailing lists, is now downloadable from Tenon's web site. This free version gives SOHO users an industrial-strength mail server and list server to use as a spring-board to a future large-scale operation. When the company grows, no changes are needed to go from 10 mailboxes to 10,000 mailboxes, other than updating the license.
