Linux-Windows Interoperability, Highlights of Internet Exchange Messaging Server 5

Hong Kong, March 15, 2001. Linux and Windows advocates can momentarily set aside their differences as messaging software developer International Messaging Associates launches the beta version of its latest product, Internet Exchange Messaging Server 5. Internet Exchange 5 supports distributed computing environments and runs extremely well on mixed Linux and Windows platforms.

"Currently, we are working on providing support for several Linux distributions," said Tim Kehres, IMA Managing Director. These Linux distributions include RedHat, SuSE, VALinux, Turbo Linux, Caldera, among others.

According to Kehres, the dramatic increase of Linux shipment from 1998 to 2000 and the dominance of Windows NT in the market account for the continued growth opportunities available in the server-operating environment. These two operating environments control 60% share of the worldwide server market for the previous periods. Projections of a steady 16% increase encourage developers to continue providing dynamic products for this market.

International Data Corporation (IDC) recently reported that Linux is fast catching up with Windows in the server market. According to the report, Windows still held 41% of the server operating system market in 2000, as compared to Linux share of 27%. But in terms of growth, the figures showed that Linux grew by 24%, outpacing Windows which only grew by 20%.

One of the many features of the Internet Exchange 5 is its Message Store component which enables it to be a completely standalone messaging server. Its Message Store includes both the POP3 and IMAP4 servers. These servers are capable of creating multiple threads to support simultaneous access and retrieval of messages in the Message Store. These servers also enable users to access their mailboxes via POP3 or IMAP4-capable clients such as Microsoft Outlook, Netscape Navigator, Eudora Mail, as well as the Internet Exchange Web Mail Client.

Internet Exchange 5's Message Store, however, is more than just a dedicated mail repository for remotely storing, retrieving, and manipulating messages. It also allows capability for limiting amounts of storage space allocated to a user, thus, preventing the user from consuming all of the available disk space in the server. Its mail filtering utility enables the system administrator to define rules so that the Local Mail Delivery Agent (LMDA) can direct message store pre-selected mailboxes or folders other than the user's inbox.

Gigi Resurreccion, IMA Senior Operations Manager, believes that Internet Exchange 5 has the best value-for-money among messaging servers available in the market today.

"Regular retail price for Internet Exchange 5 is US$995," said Resurreccion. "However, customers who will participate in the beta program can get the copy for a special price of US$695. This promotion has increased even more dramatically the price-performance value of our product," she added.

The package comes with free one-year support and free 25-user license for its Message Store. Unlimited number of users may be purchased according to the needs of the organization", said Resurreccion.
