Email users no longer need to use other services to share photos or larger files.
Bethesda, MD (PRWEB) December 08, 2011
The new Hero Attach mxHero plugin allows email users to send files of any size. The process is completely transparent to the end user. Email users no longer need to use other services to share photos or larger files.
Hero Attach works by detecting emails above a size set by the mxHero administrator, ex. 10Mb. The attachments in the above size email are removed and stored by mxHero. In their place, mxHero attaches an html file with links to all the original attachments. Recipients of the email can now access the attachments by clicking on the links. For each file downloaded, the sender receives a notification of who accessed.
mxHero is an open source software platform that can be installed with any email system. mxHero extends email’s capabilities through plugins managed by a simple and intuitive interface.
mxHero is being actively developed - the roadmap includes more than 70 functionalities, some unprecedented in email. The current release includes the popular SpamAssassin antispam and Clam antivirus solutions, requiring no additional installation or integration and with the added benefit of visual reports of effectiveness.
Alexis Panagides, CEO of mxHero:
“Email is one our most ubiquitous technologies, but little has changed since its inception more than 40 years ago. With mxHero we hope to breathe new life into email by affording email the evolution it never has fully undergone.”
