Stalker Software Inc. has introduced CommuniGate Pro Groupware, which allows the CommuniGate Pro messaging server to replace or run alongside Microsoft Exchange. The server is compatible with a variety of operating systems, including Mac OS X.

The CommuniGate Pro Groupware connector runs with Outlook on the desktop, facilitating Outlook’s collaboration functionality while connected to the CommuniGate Pro server, according to Vladimir Butenko, president and CEO of Stalker Software. The connector is a message store and transport MAPI “provider” that can compose and parse MIME messages. It maintains a constant connection to the CommuniGate Pro server, allowing its engine to complete MAPI to MIME conversions on-the-fly. Once converted, data is stored in the standard Internet format on the CommuniGate Pro server.
CommuniGate Pro supports standards such as SMTP, POP and IMAP. It offers the functionality of shared folders, Webmail, LDAP Directory, personal Web pages, S/MIME, Mailing Lists and SPAM/Virus protection for clients in the enterprise, telecommunication/service provider and education markets. On all platforms, CommuniGate Pro presents the same interfaces and uses the same file formats.
CommuniGate Pro with Groupware offers a “seamless” path from Microsoft Exchange, providing migration with no disruption to the end user, said Butenko. Users can continue to send e-mail, arrange meetings, share folders and reply to requests in the familiar Outlook interface.
The CommuniGate Pro software is available from Stalker FTP and Web sites, and their mirrors, on CD-ROMs, and from other sources. For licensing and pricing info, go to the
