Santa Barbara, CA, March 15, 2002. Tenon Intersystems, under the auspices of their Japanese partner, Open Technologies, has brought Openwave's well-regarded Post.Office to Apple's Mac OS X. Post.Office is a scalable SMTP/POP3/IMAP messaging server designed to meet the needs of small and mid-sized ISPs. Post.Office can support 10 users or ten thousand users on a single platform with appropriately configured hardware. Tenon has extended and enhanced Post.Office 3.5.3 and ported it to Mac OS X and Mac OS X Server 10.1.3.
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 specify how their mail should be handled, join mailing lists, and manage mailing lists.
Post.Office does not run with 'root' privileges and operates independently of the host computer system, making it virtually impossible to compromise the main system security via the email program. Other security features include multiple password protection levels, restricted user access to specific domains or hosts, limiting user forms to appropriate subsets and Postmaster notification in the event of suspicious activity. To curb the proliferation of mass unsolicited email (SPAM), Post.Office offers SMTP mail relay protection. Post.Office also includes POP-before-SMTP, to support valid users from remote locations. In addition, a powerful mail blocking feature can stop the delivery of all mail from a particular system, domain, email address, or user name to prevent 'denial-of-service' attacks.
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. Scripts are included to enable a smooth transition from other mail servers, such as EIMS or SIMS.
