Designed for Mac OS X, 4D Mail features built-in anti-spam, anti-virus, Webmail and more. The company said they spent a lot of time on the anti-spam features of 4D Mail to better help administrators control before it reaches the clients
A recent report by market research firm International Data Corp. said that 31 billion e-mail messages are sent everyday — about one-third of those are spam. That number will increase to 60 billion a day by 2006 with more than half of those messages made up of spam, the company predicts.
“Spam needs to be stopped on the server. We’ve spent a lot of time working on the Spam filter and people have really responded to that feature,” Brendan Coveney, president and CEO of 4D Inc. told MacCentral.
4D Mail is built on a high performance SMTP/POP/IMAP mail server with secure remote administration, advanced relay blocking and allow/deny. 4D Mail is compatible with POP and IMAP email clients on all platforms, according to the company.
“Mail is critical for most people, but even today running a mail server is not that easy,” said Coveney. “We feel that we’ve come up with something that’s very easy to use and easy to maintain at a great price.”
4D Mail is available for US$149 for a 10-mailbox license; a 100-mailbox license will cost $249 with 100-mailbox expansion packs available at $149 each. An unlimited license for 4D Mail will be available at $1499.
4D also announced the availability of an update to WebSTAR, the company’s server suite, bringing it to version 5.2. The WebSTAR 5.2 update also includes an unlimited license for 4D Mail for all owners of 4D WebSTAR V who registered by August 31, 2002. The unlimited-mailbox license option is also available for owners of 4D WebSTAR v4 who upgrade to 4D WebSTAR V and are registered by October 31, 2002.
4D WebSTAR v5.2 is available today as a free update for current registered users of 4D WebSTAR V. Upgrades are available at $199 for current registered users of WebSTAR v4, and $299 for current registered users of WebSTAR v3. Cross-grades are available to Mac OS X Server users for $299.
