IMA Partners with DynIP

Hong Kong, July 25,2001. International Messaging Associates (IMA) and DynIP, an Internet Dynamic Name service provider, enter into a partnership agreement to provide messaging solutions to organizations connected via broadband or dialup. This permits smaller organizations without their own private Internet IP addresses to now enjoy the benefits of running Internet Exchange Messaging Server (IEMS) 5.

This partnership is targeted to benefit people with changing Internet addresses. With the DynIP service, small organizations and home users are provided a service where the advertised IP address for their name is updated as their address assignments change. The DynIP client allows the users to utilize any type of Internet connection to use this service, including dial-up service, cable-modem, ADSL, ISDN, wireless or LAN connection. DynIP enables the client to host their own web site, e-mail server, FTP site and more at their own location even if they have a dynamically provided IP address. This gives organizations the opportunity to enjoy the full feature benefits of IEMS 5, an industrial strength product, without requiring a static IP. This development provides organizations the ability to increase their Internet productivity and manage their computing resources while minimizing costs.

The IEMS Message Store allows users to access their e-mail anytime, anywhere through any POP3 or IMAP4 capable clients or through an Internet browser using the Web Mail Client. The Distribution List Manager allows users to automatically send messages to numerous lists of recipients by just sending to a single group address. IEMS also includes anti-spam and anti-virus engines, providing protection against threats of spamming and virus attacks. IEMS can also run in a distributed environment allowing computing capacity and resources to be distributed access different networked machines. This is very important for companies that are concerned with maximizing the efficiency of processing while maintaining limited number of machines.

IEMS 5 is now available for downloading and free evaluation through the IMA website at http://www.ima.com while a free 30-day trial of the DynIP client is available for downloading through the DynIP website at http://www.dynip.com

 

IMA Offers Free cc:Mail Connector Licenses for Trouble-free Migration

Hong Kong, July 18,2001. Life beyond cc:Mail just got brighter for more than 14 Million orphaned users. Messaging software developer International Messaging Associates (IMA) offers free cc:Mail connector licenses with its latest product, the Internet Exchange Messaging Server (IEMS) 5. Free connector licenses will be given for every message store license purchased, including the initial 25 free accounts. The cc:Mail connector is now provided for free with every IEMS copy.

IEMS5's message store affords cc:Mail users to extend the capability to browse and operate their email not only through the usual cc:Mail Client, but also through IMAP/POP3 clients such as Outlook, Eudora, and others while giving them sufficient time for transitioning uses to the new system. This gives cc:Mail users negligible disruption in their email operations while under online migration to IEMS5.

"By continuing the use of their cc:Mail client, cc:Mail users shall still retain and enjoy the full use of their email while their respective systems administrators start tests and online migration to IEMS5's Message Store. This will allow the users to access their e-mail using any web browser," IMA President Tim Kehres said.

"In addition, since IEMS can be installed without closing down the cc:Mail Post Office, there will be less migration-related disruption in messaging operations and more benefits to be enjoyed from IEMS5," Kehres added.

Apparently, the impact goes beyond convenience as IEMS5 also offers savings in migration costs. "cc:Mail users will have to face the fact that migration will come sooner or later," Kehres said. "We sincerely believe that IEMS5 is a more cost-effective alternative than spending for completely new server systems and user mailboxes," he said.

The free cc:Mail connector comes with every purchase of IEMS5, which is available at the special promotional price of $795 through the end of July. This includes a 25-user message store and a one-year 24x7 support which will prove valuable when migrating into the new system. Additional user licenses are available to support companies with larger user base.

IEMS5 currently runs on most Windows platforms, including 98, NT, and 2000, as well as most of the popular Linux distributions, including Red Hat, Mandrake, Turbolinux, Caldera, SuSE, and VALinux.

 

IMA Partners with Dynamic DNS Providers

Hong Kong, July 10,2001. Software developer International Messaging Associates (IMA) announces its partnership with TZO, a dynamic DNS provider. This partnership provides significant opportunities for smaller organizations and home users (SOHO) to enjoy the full features and benefits of IMA's latest product, the Internet Exchange Messaging Server (IEMS) 5.

The IMA-TZO partnership signals the availability of the IEMS 5, an industrial strength messaging product, for smaller companies' use. The TZO service allows Internet users maintaining a dynamic IP address to run a complete e-mail server. Since many small to medium sized business are finding that having an in-house e-mail system is both more convenient and cost-effective than having email hosted by the ISP, this partnership comes as a timely solution for this concern. With the dynamic DNS service, it is now possible to run Internet mail servers associated with a customer domain name, while maintaining a dynamic IP address.

Full IEMS functionality provides these companies with a reliable and efficient message handling solution. Through the IEMS dial-up scheduler, the server automatically connects to the ISP at pre-determined times, synchronizing with the TZO dynamic IP service, which provides the real time naming service for the customer's domain. Once the customer's domain is available through the TZO dynamic name service, the mail server can be contacted from any other site on the Internet just as if it had a statically allocated address.

The IEMS Message Store allows users to access their e-mail anytime, anywhere through any POP3 or IMAP4 capable clients or through an Internet browser using the Web Mail Client. The Distribution List Manager allows users to automatically send messages to numerous lists of recipients by just sending to a single group address. IEMS also includes anti-spam and anti-virus engines, providing protection against threats of spamming and virus attacks. IEMS can also run in a distributed environment allowing computing capacity and resources to be distributed access different networked machines. This is very important for companies that are concerned with maximizing the efficiency of processing while maintaining limited number of machines.

IEMS 5 is now available for downloading and evaluation through the IMA website at http://www.ima.com
