Newark, DE (PRWEB) May 4, 2010
AfterLogic today released a bundled messaging and collaboration solution for Linux, furnishing a modern Ajax interface for Exim and Courier MTA systems.
The package, dubbed AfterLogic MailSuite Pro for Linux, is based on established “gold standard” technologies that have earned acceptance by the open source community and commercial users through the years. What’s new is the slick WebMail interface, which includes shared calendars and an extended address book, as well as a simplified web-based control panel for basic system administration. The overall solution is installed and configured under a common routine and is commercially supported by AfterLogic Corporation, available on the web at:
“Clients typically look for a complete e-mail and collaboration package, something that would be simple to install and easy to manage. And especially where e-mail is concerned, users demand that a messaging solution is built on a rock solid foundation. So we’ve selected some of the most trustworthy and popular open source components and unified them under a common management umbrella. Integral to the overall package is our own flagship product, AfterLogic WebMail Pro, which is widely used all over the world, and is available in 20 languages, including support for Asian scripts and right to left text,” said Vlad Klimenko, Project Manager at AfterLogic.
“Also, gone are the days of high licensing fees. Many enterprise clients are experiencing budget cuts, and hosting providers have to work with ever shrinking margins. By basing the underlying technology stack on tried and true open source software, we are able to provide a product of the highest quality without the need to collect exorbitant fees, especially at a time when clients can least afford them,” he said.
The collaboration suite was put together by AfterLogic using a time tested approach of selecting the best of breed software, in compliance with accepted technology standards. Adherence to standards by the authors of each component allows integrators to loosely couple independent systems and make them work together without intermingling source code. The result may be compared to an assembled jigsaw puzzle where a larger picture emerges even though each piece remains autonomous. The same holds true in the IT world. While each layer of the technology platform could operate independently, the assembled system offers the benefits of a comprehensive integrated solution.
At the core of AfterLogic MailSuite Pro for Linux is a fully preconfigured mail server based on Exim SMTP and Courier IMAP/POP3 MTA. Also included are anti-spam and anti-virus systems, Ajax-based WebMail interface, sharable calendars with collaborative features, address book, integration API, and a web-based administration console. The system is optimized for Red Hat based Linux, such as CentOS. A detailed product description is available at AfterLogic’s web site:
