Weeks back, we wrote about some sneak peak of SmarterMail 9.x beta with some of the new features is going to introduce by SmarterTools. Last Friday, SmarterTools has officially announced at their blog that the official beta release of SmarterMail 9.x is going to be available for public download at this coming Thursday 27, oct 2011! Let’s have another review on the excitement features of SmarterMail 9.x :
Interface Speed Enhancement and Mobility
Are you ready for an incredibly powerful and fast web interface that can be used across desktops and tablets (including iPad and Android)? Now you have it! With SmarterMail 9.x, we have optimized the web interface for even the slowest of tablets while making it “XOOM” on desktops. We believe users deserve the full SmarterMail experience across all platforms, whether your using a mouse or a touch interface.
SmarterMail and Exchange Outlook
SmarterMail 9.x is one of the only mail servers (including Microsoft Exchange) to support Exchange Web Services (EWS). EWS is Microsoft’s new technology allowing Microsoft Outlook to connect natively and seamlessly with a mail server. Currently, Microsoft Outlook 2011 for Mac supports EWS and the upcoming Microsoft Outlook 2012 for Windows will support it as well. EWS is intended to replace the old and antiquated MAPI technology, allowing for much faster communication and access to the latest technologies, and joins the existing methods already provided for connecting Microsoft Outlook and SmarterMail together!
More Sync Friendly
Ice Cream Sandwich, iOS 5, Mango, Lion and more! The industry is ever evolving and so is SmarterMail as it continues to focus on improvements in supporting the latest technologies. Whether you or a user wants to try a new mobile phone, tablet or OS you can be assured SmarterMail will meet your needs.
Simpler and Smoother Installation and Setup!
Although SmarterMail is one of the easiest and more lightweight mail servers on the market, we have not stopped improving the process to get new servers installed and setup! SmarterMail 9.x introduces an updated getting started wizard with multiple walkthrough videos to help simplify the process.
Email is Good! Instant Messaging is GREAT!
No matter the size of an organization, the ability to communicate securely and instantly is crucial. SmarterMail 9.x integrates an Instant Messenger seamlessly without any additional configuration. Whether you’re logged into the Web Interface or would like to use a Jabber client on your desktop, tablet or mobile device, communicating with other users in your organization is great!
That’s It? Nope – There’s More!
SmarterMail 9.x includes lots of features and enhancement other than those specified above, here’s some more sneak peak!
