Interface Speed Enhancement and Mobility

SmarterMail Speed EnhancementAre 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

Outlook Exchange Web Service Smartermail 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

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.
