1&1's customers will benefit from access to our collaboration software that streamlines communications and can improve users' productivity.
Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) July 9, 2008
1&1 Internet Inc., the world's largest web host by known servers, today announced a new product, 1&1 MailXchange, based on Open-Xchange Inc.'s award winning collaboration technology.
MailXchange is a 1&1 hosted solution-- requiring no server management or licensing fees from customers. Small business owners and private users looking for an affordable alternative to Microsoft Exchange and SharePoint can utilize this hosted and feature-rich email and collaboration service. The service can also be utilized with any Windows Mobile smartphone.
With 1&1 MailXchange users can take advantage of Open-Xchange's advanced web-based personal information management (PIM), providing customers with email, calendaring, contact and task management to enhance efficiency and teamwork. The centralized document management system allows for users to attach documents to corresponding tasks, as well as share them without emailing large files. The web-based MailXchange interface is available anywhere with internet access. This gives companies with multiple locations and employees working out of office, the flexibility to effectively share information. With 1&1 MailXchange users also have the option of synchronizing with Microsoft Outlook.
Oliver Mauss, CEO 1&1 Internet Inc., said, "MailXchange delivers valuable functionality for small businesses and individuals, facilitating effective teamwork and enabling document sharing anywhere, anytime, with any device. As a leader in innovative technology, 1&1 will continue to call upon proven open-source technologies which enable our customers to benefit from greatly reduced licensing costs."
"We're seeing the dawn of a new era with hosted software made widely available to everyone when that was previously reserved only for installations at enterprises," said Rafael Laguna, CEO of Open-Xchange. "1&1's customers will benefit from access to our collaboration software that streamlines communications and can improve users' productivity."
MailXchange offers synchronization with Windows Mobile smartphones. While most email services use 'pull technology,' MailXchange uses 'push technology,' automatically pushing emails, appointments and tasks directly into your account, without needing to actively sync.
1&1 MailXchange starts at $4.99 per user per month, and is discounted with additional users, making the product more affordable and tailored to the customer's business. Users have the option to continue using Microsoft Outlook, and can manage up to five separate email accounts within MailXchange. MailXchange incorporates dependability features such as document version management and integrated anti-spam protection. The product includes the domain of the customer's choice, 5 GB of email account storage and 2 GB of document storage per user.
