Reliable and inexpensive e-mail solution for Linux users

Nuernberg, Germany - January 12, 2001 - Today, SuSE Linux, the international
technology leader and solutions provider in Open Source operating system,
presented the second generation of e-mail solutions for commerce, public
administration, workgroups and all others  needing professional e-mail

The SuSE eMail Server II is an Open Source solution, based on reliable
components consistent with Internet standards such as SMTP, IMAP4, POP3, and
LDAP. In accordance with the IMAP standard (Internet Message Access Protocol),
the SuSE eMail Server administrates mail on a central server.

Users now have access to their messages and folders via the Internet or their
company LAN, independent from their respective location and the e-mail client
they employ. The server supports all common e-mail clients, including Microsoft
Outlook, Outlook Express, Netscape Messenger, and Eudora. It can also be
accessed with the included Web-Mail Client IMP. The user interface enables even
inexperienced computer users to handle their mail with ease.

"The new SuSE eMail Server II allows a new degree of usability. With this new
server application, Linux increases the value of a reliable and powerful
platform that is simple and accessible to even the most "SuSE eMail Server II
is yet another component that builds on Linux performance and durability for
enterprise computing."

The number of possible users for each e-mail server is unlimited and is only
affected by the performance capacity of the server hardware. The SuSE Linux
operating system uses hardware resources economically, allowing large e-mail
pools to be maintained inexpensively with the SuSE eMail Server II. This
guarantees low acquisition costs and a high security of investment.

The SuSE eMail Server II can be obtained from SuSE or from software retailers
from the beginning of February onwards. The suggested retail price for one
server is £170 + VAT and includes a manual, 60 days installation support and
the server backup solution Arkeia from Knox Software. Additional technical
support and consulting services for implementing this and a wide variety of
other solutions are also available from SuSE.
