SmarterMail 4 is the Perfect Windows Vista(TM) SMTP Mail Server Solution

Share Article

SmarterMail is the perfect solution for those needing an SMTP mail server to reside on computers using the new Microsoft Vista(TM) Operating System (OS). A basic SMTP mail server solution has been included in every version of the Windows OS for many years. In addressing potential vulnerabilities and other concerns going forward, however, Microsoft chose to leave the SMTP functionality out of their latest offering--the new Vista(TM) OS.



    Leaving the SMTP mail server out of Vista(TM) may not be a bad thing for everyone. Most Vista(TM) users will not miss it because they use a third-party solution to provide for all of their mail communications needs. But many Developers, System Administrators, and other IT professionals have relied on the SMTP solution inside their workstations to process mailing lists, handle basic mail functions, and for development testing purposes. Upgrading to Vista(TM) now means that a third-party solution will be required to accomplish those goals. SmarterMail fits that bill perfectly.

SmarterMail, developed by SmarterTools, is well known as a rock-solid mail server solution for ISPs, Web-hosting companies, and small businesses. It has been developed using .NET 2.0--the same framework used by Vista(TM)--so it is reliable and integrates well with the new OS. SmarterTools remains committed to having Free versions of its product line available for use by individuals and technical professionals--SmarterMail is no exception.

All versions of SmarterMail 4 include fully integrated SpamAssassin and ClamAV right out of the box. These industry-leading enhancements build upon previously introduced SmarterMail features, such as Bayesian filtering, SPF, RBL, SMTP connection blocking, intrusion detection, and more, to ensure that spam and viruses are stopped at the perimeter--95% (or more) of spam never touches an inbox. The complete set of spam, virus, and attack-prevention features is integrated into every installation of SmarterMail 4.0--including the Free version.

SmarterMail 4.0 has a new, user-friendly AJAX Web interface and custom skins that can be used to make SmarterMail the perfect fit for each organization. SmarterMail 4 also expands upon the tools that business customers demand, including collaboration, calendars, contacts, tasks, folders, notes, and enterprise-level features such as synchronization with Microsoft Outlook(TM) and Pocket PC.
