DC&R updates MailBurst

The shareware developers at DC&R have released MailBurst 2.3.3, the latest version of the add-on package for Mac OS mail servers running EIMS (the Eudora Internet Mail Server) or SIMS (the Stalker Internet Mail Server).

Version 2.3.3, which is for the traditional Mac operating system, offers performance enhancements and better handling of SPAM addresses (random addresses, crazy variations on what's legal, etc.), according to MacTech magazine. Also, David Dantowitz of DC&R promises that MailBurst 3.0 "will have some nifty tools for spam handling."

MailBurst 2.3.3 costs US$199.95. If you purchased MailBurst before Jan. 1, 1998, you can upgrade to 2.3 for $129. If you bought MailBurst or already upgraded to 2.1 or later on or after Jan. 1, 1998, the upgrade to 2.3 is free.

DC&R is also nearing completion of FaxBee 1.5, a mail-to-fax gateway. It will feature the ability to retrieve POP3 mail, so your fax server can be separate from your mail server, Dantowitz said.

"We've also addressed case-sensitivity in host names for Max OS X Web browsing; formerly, our URLs used case that matched the product names," he added.

Finally, DC&R is also readying the next release of The ZipBurst CGI Pro, a location-based search engine. A lite version will also be available for fast, multi-threaded, non-proximity searches.
