Software.com Offers Mail, Calendar Tools

Software.com, Inc. this week introduced WebEdge Mail and Calendar, Web-based tools designed specifically for small to medium sized Internet service providers.

Using these tools, ISPs can provide their customers with customized, branded e-mail and calendaring options that can then be accessed from any Web browser, the company said.

Some of the features supported in WebEdge Mail include
multiple folders for storing messages, searching,
in-line attachments, signature files, address books,
and spell checking. And WebEdge Calendar boasts
to-do lists, event notification (sending E-Mail to the
user to warn them about up-coming events) and
multiple calendar viewing options among its feature
set.

Designed specifically for the service provider environment, the product is a multi-threaded Web
server engine that will work with any POP3 or IMAP mail server. The end user look and feel is provided
via customizable HTML templates, meaning that
providers can brand the service to reflect their own
corporate image. The user accounts and
applications themselves can be managed on-site, or
remotely through a Web-based interface.

WebEdge Mail and Calendar is available
immediately from the Software.com Web site.
Pricing is server/volume based, beginning at $249 for
a single server license including 100 mail accounts
and 10 calendar accounts.
