Santa Barbara, CA, June 15, 2004. Two new mail packages, Post.Office 3.6 and WEBmail 6, are now available from Tenon for Mac OS X. Both Post.Office, the well-regarded mail server and list server widely used around the world, and WEBmail, a web-based mail client developed by EMUmail, have been significantly enhanced with feature updates.
Post.Office was recently extended with a plug-in architecture that makes it easy to incorporate open source tools, such as SpamAssassin (an open source spam detector). Now a new plug-in for virus scanning has been added. The virus scanning plug-in uses the latest ClamAV, the popular, open source, muti-threaded virus scanner designed for mail attachment scanning, with a virus database that is updated biweekly.
WEBmail 6 is an easy-to-use web mail client that can be hand-tailored with your own logos, or even with your own look & feel. Like Post.Office, it supports both POP and IMAP and multiple domains. It can even be set up with multiple mail servers for failover support. And like Post.Office, it also includes SPAM filtering and SMTP Authentication (to ensure mail server open relay protection, while giving authorized users world-wide access to the mail server).
The new WEBmail 6 has an integrated web calendar that lets you share your calendar in a group environment to coordinate meetings. The built-in calendar security lets you endow certain users with permission to edit calendar events, while others have viewing privileges only. Users can have multiple calendars, so you can keep your personal calendar private and have public calendars for your various organizations.
When Post.Office and WEBmail are used in conjunction with Tenon's iTools (an Apache, DNS, and FTP GUI), both products have additional features. iTools can generate graphical displays of the mail server traffic patterns and the web-based mail client will run many times faster by using FastCGI with iTools Apache 2.
Tenon sells Post.Office as a downloadable software package for installation on Mac OS X desktops or as a turnkey server on a Panther Xserve box. Post.Office is offered on a sliding scale, depending upon how many mailboxes and mailing lists are needed. A starter package is available for $295, supporting 100 mailboxes and 10 lists. Mailboxes or lists can be purchased in blocks of 100 for $150 ($75 educational). For thousands of mailboxes, a range of packages is available to cater to Universities, corporate enterprises, and ISPs. WEBmail 6is available as add-on package starting at $500. For 10 accounts or less, Post.Office is free! Post.Office customers on non-Mac platforms are encouraged to call Tenon for analysis, support, and system upgrades.
