Cary, NC, United States, 2008/03/14 - Kerio MailServer, an affordable alternative to expensive groupware such as Microsoft Exchange, provides Mac users with all of the same benefits but without the high cost - InfTekHosting.com.
Small and medium-size businesses now have access to yet another simple solution: Kerio MailServer, an inexpensive alternative to Microsoft Exchange.
InfTek Hosting, a company that provides web hosting and other business solutions, recently began offering this Mac-compatible groupware. Kerio MailServer functions just like any email collaboration software, but without the expense of maintaining a dedicated server.
Kerio MailServer is completely compatible with both the Mac and the PC. On the Mac, Kerio MailServer works with Microsoft Entourage, Apple Mail, Address Book, and iCal. On the PC, Kerio MailServer is compatible with Outlook, Windows Mail (Vista), and Windows Calendar (Vista).
InfTek's Hosted Kerio service is the Mac user's preferred groupware and email solution. This Hosted Kerio service allows users to synchronize events and To Do’s in Apple iCal on Leopard with Kerio WebMail, or a Smartphone through Kerio MailServer’s CalDAV access. Hosted Kerio accounts support the native Microsoft Exchange features found in Apple Mail, iCal, Address Book, and Entourage. By using Kerio’s Outlook-like webmail, the business’s employees can then access this information from any location or computer. When in the office, businesses can decide whether to use their regular mail client and sync to Kerio MailServer, or use Kerio’s webmail exclusively.
Kerio MailServer is designed to protect a business from threats such as spam and viruses. Kerio’s “smart” servers detect and block attempts to harvest a company’s email addresses. Even if email addresses are acquired through another means, spam is virtually eliminated using the award-winning SpamAssassin, which uses a dual-filter approach: Obvious spam is immediately discarded, while emails with a low spam rating are saved in a junk mail folder for the user to go through.
Kerio MailServer protects the company from viruses by scanning both incoming and outgoing emails. Not just one, but two anti-virus engines scan every email, doubling the chances of detection.
Another useful feature for many businesses is Kerio MailServer’s compatibility with popular cell phones, such as Smartphone, Blackberry, and Apple’s iPhone. WebMail Mini provides access from a PDA, increasing an employee’s ability to communicate on the go.
InfTek performs nightly data store backups of all Hosted Kerio MailServers, protecting a business’s valuable data from being lost or destroyed.
In addition to Kerio MailServer, InfTek Hosting (InfTekHosting.com) offers a variety of services for small and medium-size businesses, such as web hosting, web design, and search engine optimization.
