Paradise Valley, Arizona, October 15, 1999 - - Lockstep Systems™ today announced the release of IGetMail™ version 2.0. IGetMail is an add-on to SMTP-compliant e-mail servers designed to automate and streamline remote e-mail downloading.

IGetMail solves the problem that is created when companies use an Internet Service Provider (ISP) to host their Internet domain(s) and they also use a local SMTP-compliant e-mail server.  Companies in this situation do not receive their inbound mail on a timely, consistent basis.  Popular Windows e-mail servers such as Microsoft Exchange and Eudora World Mail only download incoming mail when sending outgoing mail; creating a potential for time gaps that can leave messages sitting on remote servers.  IGetMail bridges the gap that exists between the servers by systematically checking for inbound mail and downloading messages to the local e-mail server. 

The new IGetMail version 2.0 supports the ability to download and sort e-mail from multiple remote e-mail servers.  This feature is designed for companies that receive e-mail addressed to more than one Internet domain.  IGetMail version 2.0 gives e-mail administrators the ability to centralize the downloading of mail from various remote servers to a single SMTP e-mail server.

Version 2.0 also supports the ability to download incoming e-mail from multiple third-party individual e-mail accounts.  The e-mail administrator can map individual third-party e-mail accounts to an address used by the local e-mail server.  This feature gives the administrator the ability to fetch e-mail from individual third-party accounts and saves the end user time because all their incoming e-mail flows into a single in-box.

Highlights of Version 2.0’s new features include the ability to:

  • Download e-mail messages from multiple Internet domains (multiple remote e-mail servers).

  • Download e-mail messages from multiple individual e-mail accounts.

  • Test the environment configuration “on-the-fly” from within the Administration Wizard.

  • Specify different weekday and weekend downloading schedules.

  • Check mail immediately without disrupting existing weekday and weekend settings.

IGetMail is especially useful for companies that use a local e-mail server and would like to avoid the costs associated with:

  • Hosting their own Internet domain locally, and/or

  • Installing a permanent high-speed connection to their ISP, and/or

  • Maintaining individual e-mail accounts at the ISP, and/or

  •  Maintaining additional virtual domain accounts at the ISP, and/or

  •  Maintaining ETRN accounts with the ISP.

IGetMail version 2.0 is available direct from Lockstep Systems, Inc. and is priced at $79.00 US for a single-server license.  A 30-day, full-featured trial version may be downloaded from Lockstep’s web site:  Reseller pricing available upon request; inquiries welcome.

IGetMail System Requirements: IBM PC/Compatible running Windows 95/98, Windows NT 4.0 (Service pack 3), or Windows 2000; requires 1 MB hard disk space; minimum 2.5 MB RAM; a POP3 compliant remote e-mail server; and an SMTP compliant local e-mail server (such as most versions of UNIX, Microsoft Exchange Server or Eudora World Mail Server).  IGetMail can run as a Windows NT Service or as a Windows application.  IGetMail can be installed on the local e-mail server or on another networked Windows machine.
