Gaylord, Michigan - Deerfield.comŽ, a leading provider of Internet optimization and connectivity software, today announced the upcoming launch of VisNetic MailServer, a mail server engineered with a foundation robust enough to become the supporting cornerstone of an entire suite of messaging solutions.

About VisNetic MailServer

VisNetic MailServer is a multithreaded, multiprocessor capable mail server that supports all of the most widely used mail protocols including SMTP, POP3, IMAP4, HTTP, and LDAP; each of these protocols can be secured utilizing SSL/TLS. VisNetic MailServer is a top choice for administrators looking for stability, security and scalability in email messaging.

Small-to-Medium Business. VisNetic MailServer is easier to install and setup than most email servers. Core features and benefits for small-to-medium sized businesses also include spam blocking, relay prevention, AntiVirus Plug-in support and integrated VisNetic WebMail, for email from anywhere; WAP-enabled, you can even check your email using a PDA or cell phone.

Enterprise/ISP. Large organizations gain peace of mind with the TLS-secured connection feature and true scalability, including the ability to support a large number of accounts. Considered "ISP ready", VisNetic MailServer features also include user configurable remote access and high-speed performance.

"VisNetic MailServer represents the core component of our new VisNetic messaging suite," said Mike Deerfield, CEO of "Recent customer feedback and market analysis strongly indicate that businesses are seeking advanced messaging and marketing tools for better managing email. For example, the ODBC [open database connectivity] support within VisNetic MailServer utilizes an open standard API [application programming interface] for accessing a database. This is important because it allows customers to better manage user databases, perform large installations, and even migrate easily between email servers. VisNetic MailServer is certainly tuned for optimal access and load handling."

VisNetic Messaging Suite

Following the initial release of VisNetic MailServer, will launch VisNetic MailFlow, an email management solution designed to provide a central location for data, effective collaboration on workload, informative reporting and more. Next, will be the introduction of VisNetic MailCast, a useful campaign management tool that enables organizations to efficiently disseminate information to their customers and partners. Additional online communication solutions will soon follow, to further extend the VisNetic Messaging Suite.

VisNetic MailServer Pricing and Availability

VisNetic MailServer will be available at introductory prices ranging from $110.00 USD for a 6-user license for small-to-medium sized organizations to unlimited user licenses for larger organizations for $1950 USD. License sizes of 500, 1000 and Unlimited users include a one year AntiVirus Plug-in Subscription. Public beta will be available Monday, June 3, 2002.
