Kerio MailServer 6.2 – Kerio polishes Webmail with AJAX

By | December 25, 2006

Kerio MailServer, a highly rated email and groupware server targeted to small and medium sized businesses, has been updated again, this time with a broad range of refinements to existing features most users will appreciate. Among the new features are Sticky Notes support, a two-level spam rating system, and private Distribution Lists.

Users of Sticky Notes in Microsoft Outlook can now share them with other colleagues. Colour-coded Notes created in Outlook are automatically synchronised with Kerio MailServer and made immediately available in Kerio WebMail.

The new two-level spam rating system helps users direct messages tagged with low spam scores to their Junk Email Folders for further review, while messages with really high spam scores can be automatically discarded without ever reaching the user’s mailbox. This, combined with user-powered spam training, dramatically reduces the time users have to spend going through their email quarantine.

Distribution Lists, which group private contacts into a single email address, help users streamline the process for sending information emails to large groups of recipients. Available originally only in Outlook, Kerio MailServer 6.2 delivers Distribution Lists in Kerio WebMail, making Kerio WebMail even more feature rich. Distribution Lists are synchronised between Outlook and WebMail.

To support the growing number of global Kerio users, Kerio WebMail and Kerio WebMail Mini are now available in 16 languages, including English, French, German, Italian, Dutch, Swedish, Spanish, Portuguese, Czech, Slovak, Polish, Hungarian, Croatian, Russian, Japanese and Chinese.

“With this release, we focused on small improvements that help users do more with their email client, and do it more quickly and easily than before,“ confirms Alan Hughes, Managing Director for Kerio Technologies UK and Western Europe. “By implementing technologies like AJAX (Asynchronous Javascript and XML), we hope to make our WebMail experience comparable or superior to that of traditional software email clients.“

“Kerio once again provides a solid upgrade to their email server product,” comments Skye Quin, Sales Director of QBS Software, a Kerio Business Partner based in London. “It is very easy to use and maintain. We know that by recommending Kerio MailServer, we can offer customers a highly reliable and versatile technical solution which represents a superb value-for-money proposition as well.”
