CE Software, the folks who develop personal and group productivity software, has updated QuickMail, their Internet and interoffice e-mail system, to version 3.0 and added Mac OS X compatibility.
Among QuickMail’s primary strengths are automated procedures for handling return receipts to reduce inbox clutter, an improved enclosure handling procedures, including double-click launching and compression, access to Internet and proprietary directories with built-in directory services, and the ability to gather messages from multiple accounts into a single inbox. QuickMail 3.0 features Mac OS X client and server, new address book distribution, and more. It includes updated QuickMail Pro client software for Mac and Windows, as well as an updated version of the QuickMail Pro Server for Macintosh. QuickMail Pro clients are also available separately.
And, according to CE Software President John Kirk, President, QuickMail Pro 3.0 client software spots a new client interface that takes advantage of Mac OS X’s Aqua look and feel. It lets remote users send e-mail through servers that require SMTP Authorization. There’s a new “Show as Plain Text” menu item that allows the user to view formatted text as plain text for easier reading. You can edit and save changes to messages while in the Inbox, as well as drag and drop filed or sent messages into the Inbox. Plus, QuickMail Office 3.0 also features expanded server capabilities such as streamlined address book distribution and SMTP Authorization that prevents unauthorized relaying while allowing remote users to send e-mail.
