Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) June 3, 2010
Atmail, a leading developer of software applications for email messaging and collaboration software, has released version 6.1.8 of their email server software. Version 6.1.8 features two major enhancements for Atmail. CardDAV client support, allowing Atmail to view users address-books within the unified Webmail interface and Webmail theme support in CSS. With this release of CardDAV support, Atmail’s address book can now connect to a CardDAV server via open-standards as the source for all contact information, which is a major bonus for those wanting portable contact information, anywhere, anytime.
“Atmail is one of the first Webmail clients to fully support CardDAV. With a growing number of desktop-clients and mobiles such as the iPhone and Android slated to support CardDAV. Say goodbye to proprietary formats for contact data”, said Ben Duncan Atmail CEO “We are preparing to provide the complete open-protocol messaging solution. The Webmail theme support in CSS demonstrates how easy Atmail front end interface is to customize to provide users multiple Webmail themes”, he added.

Using Address-book Groupware:
Use Atmail to setup a shared address-book for important company and client contacts. Allow users to access the Global Address List to easily send messages to users within the organization. Boost productivity by sharing contacts and information
- Global Address Book entries representing every account on your Atmail system. The GAL (Global Address List) allows anyone in your organization to connect with other users and view contact information and details
- Personal Address-book allows users to separate personal contacts from Global and Shared contacts. These contacts can only be viewed by the individual user account.
- Shared Address-book adds functionality to share contacts with other users (or groups of users). Shared contacts can be assigned read/write permissions which enables the users with whom the contacts are shared to modify the contact entries directly. Optionally, read-only access can be granted to allow the entry to be viewed by selected users, but can only be modified by the original owner.
