Kerio MailServer updated
Kerio today released Kerio MailServer for Mac OS X as a Universal Binary, offering native compatibility to Intel Mac owners. The groupware mail server combines email, contacts, calendars, and tasks in an effort to aid small to medium-sized businesses. The update introduces a plug-in for Clam Antivirus, offering a minimum level of virus protection out-of-the-box by scanning all email messages as they pass through the server. ClamAV is also usable alongside the optional built-in McAfee Anti-Virus to offer dual antivirus control for enhanced filtering. The software supports usage of Apple Mail, iCal, Address Book, or the AJAX-based Kerio WebMail to view, manage, and share contacts, calendars and email folders, immediately syncing all changes with the server. Kerio MailServer is priced at $500 for 20 users or $750 with integrated McAfee Anti-Virus functionality, and requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later.
Kerio MailServer also communicates natively with Microsoft Entourage, a Mac groupware counterpart of Microsoft Outlook. As a result, Windows users connecting through the Kerio Outlook Connector can synchronize their sticky notes.
Kerio WebMail is optimized for Safari and Firefox browsers on Mac OS X, and Kerio WebMail Mini is optimized for PDA displays. Both are available in 16 languages which include English, French, German, Italian, Dutch, Swedish, Spanish, Portuguese, Czech, Slovak, Polish, Hungarian, Croatian, Russian, Japanese, and Chinese.
