MailSite Amps Up For ISPs

Rockliffe, which specializes in online messaging services, Wednesday has a new version of its MailSite product targeted to the needs of service providers.

The Campbell, Calif.-based company also known for its Rock-Solid Software says Rockliffe MailSite SP-c has many new revenue-generating features and benefits, such as integrated virus scanning, security enhancements and full clustering.

Prices for single-server MailSite SP-s licenses start at $4,995 with clustered MailSite SP-c licenses starting at $19,995.

The virus capabilities are a a result of Rockliffe's newly formed relationship with Helsinki, Finland-based anti-virus software maker F-Secure.

With the new anti-virus subscription service, MailSite SP-c will automatically download updated virus definition files so that new viruses will be detected as soon as they appear.

"With the new anti-virus and security features in MailSite SP-c, our customers can boost revenues by offering value-added services to their subscribers," says Rockliffe CEO John Davies. "The improved clustering and scalability makes it possible for customers to add subscribers without growing their infrastructure. The new features offered in MailSite SP-c almost make e-mail sexy."

Rockliffe says it has also extended the clustering capability in MailSite SP-c so that all system-wide configuration and mailbox settings can be centralized on one SQL server cluster. This means that customers can configure multiple MailSite Application Server nodes that are completely data-less and fully redundant.

Oslo, Norway-based Active ISP, which currently hosts almost a quarter of million mailboxes on MailSite, says it is looking forward to the upgrade.

"The demand on the product was that it was standards-based and that it had very high availability," says Active ISP product manager Sondre Mjoen. We also had to be sure that the developer would continue to improve the product - it had a to be easily adaptable to our changing needs over time."

And as a final touch, the company included mailbox-level alias addresses, the ability to insert banners in all incoming and outgoing mail, and utilities to remove unused mailboxes and old messages.
