Just six months after its last release, Kerio Technologies, is launching a new version of Kerio MailServer, its popular groupware and email server suite for small and medium-sized organisations. By adding mobile email, calendar and contact list synchronisation for Research in Motion BlackBerry devices, Symbian and Palm phones, Kerio MailServer completes its transformation into a comprehensive mobile groupware server. With this new release, Kerio MailServer now supports all major mobile smartphone devices, including Microsoft Windows Mobile devices. On the desktop, users will get new options to automatically synchronise their iCal calendar application and Address Book on Mac OS X and share and publish calendars using Vista Calendar which ships with the new Windows Vista operating system.
Kerio MailServer 6.4 provides support for BlackBerry through a hosted service called NotifyLinkÃ¢â€ž? for Kerio, offered by Notify Corp. Once signed up for the service, users can download and install the NotifyLink client directly to their BlackBerry device and have their email, contacts and calendars synchronised with Kerio MailServer.
Kerio MailServer 6.4 supports the new groupware client Outlook 2007 from Microsoft. For small businesses or startups with a preference for low cost groupware solutions, Kerio MailServer now supports the new Vista Mail and Vista Calendar applications that Microsoft includes with the OS. Users can get email, manage contacts, and subscribe or publish calendars without having to purchase a full-featured groupware application such as Outlook.
The new Kerio iSync Connector provide Mac users the ability to synchronise their Address Book and iCal calendar application data with Kerio MailServer. This two-way synchronisation of calendar and contact data combined with Kerio’s support for the Apple Mail application allows organisations to rollout professional groupware to their employees using just the built-in applications and technologies in Mac OS X.
Administrators can install and test the new version of Kerio MailServer on Windows Vista, Fedora Core 6, SUSE Linux 10.1, and Red Hat Enterprise 5.
