SuSE Linux releases second generation e-mail solutions

SuSE Linux has announced the release of the second generation of its e-mail solutions for commerce, public administration, workgroups and all others needing professional e-mail communication.

The SuSE eMail Server II is an Open Source solution based on reliable components consistent with Internet standards such as SMTP, IMAP4, POP3, and LDAP. It allows users to access their messages and folders via the Internet or their company LAN, independent from their respective location and the e-mail client they employ. The server supports all common e-mail clients, including Microsoft Outlook, Outlook Express, Netscape Messenger, and Eudora. It can also be accessed with the included Web-Mail Client IMP. The user interface enables even inexperienced computer users to handle their mail with ease. The number of possible users for each e-mail server is unlimited and is only affected by the performance capacity of the server hardware. The SuSE Linux operating system uses hardware resources economically, allowing large e-mail pools to be maintained inexpensively with the SuSE eMail Server II.

This guarantees low acquisition costs and a high security of investment. The SuSE eMail Server II can be obtained from SuSE or from software retailers from the beginning of February onwards. The suggested retail price for one server is 255 Euro and includes a manual, 60 days installation support and the server backup solution Arkeia from Knox Software. Additional technical support and consulting services for implementing this and a wide variety of other solutions are also available from SuSE. SuSE Linux AG is the international technology leader and solutions provider in Open Source operating system (OS) software. It offers the largest support database to the public, and owns the largest hardware database in the Linux market. Furthermore, SuSE supports more hardware platforms than any other commercially available Linux distribution. Designed for Web and enterprise server environments and efficient as a home and office platform, SuSE's distribution, surrounding features, effective configuration and intelligent design result in the most complete Linux solution available today.
