MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- PostPath, creator of the industrys only email and collaboration server that offers organizations of all sizes a drop-in alternative to Exchange™, today announced PostPath Email Server 3.1. The new PostPath Server makes it practical for the first time for SMEs to implement a full-featured Fortune-100-class messaging infrastructure – with native Outlook support, webmail, mobile integration, big mailboxes, and high availability. Plus, the new server avoids the build costs, migration challenges, closed architectures, and ongoing management complexity associated with Microsoft Exchange.

SMEs Demand Fortune-100-class Messaging and Collaboration

Until recently, SMEs rarely chose to support the full range of collaboration capabilities provided by enterprise-class infrastructure. But SME needs are changing, and in 2008 SMEs are trying to adapt to a host of new demands from users:

  • Full-featured Outlook support. Gone are the days when a typical SME felt its users could live without shared calendaring, document sharing, and the ability to delegate access – full, native Outlook capability has become a must-have

  • Mobile-device support. Once an optional extra for a handful of people, this is becoming a requirement for a large proportion of users

  • Highly functional, highly usable webmail support. Webmail is no longer seen merely as a supplement to an Outlook desktop. For a subset of users – such as those who spend most of their time away from their desks – webmail is an Outlook replacement, which dramatically raises the bar on what they require in terms of webmail functionality and usability

  • Large mailboxes. Now that Linux-based hosting services can provide multi-gigabyte mailboxes for free, many more users demand the same from their corporate email systems

  • High availability. With email so central to conducting business, the need for continuous email service is felt across a broad range of SMEs
