AtMail, a Linux-based e-mail management appliances and software provider, has released AtMail 6.0. The re-tooled e-mail system combines the benefits of highly advanced Webmail with the control and security of in-house e-mail. AtMail 6.0 eliminates the need for costly “boxed” e-mail licenses, saves time and headaches associated with traditional desktop e-mail management, and provides a dynamic, single e-mail interface for use internally or remotely via the Web.

AtMail 6.0 is designed for organizations that are looking for new, smarter, and more efficient e-mail systems that cost less, are easier to manage, and promote improved productivity and collaboration through dynamic features such as integrated e-mail thread visibility and Web-based administration. It combines the growing benefits of cloud-based computing with the security and control many organizations require when it comes to e-mail. AtMail 6.0 is a low-cost alternative to Microsoft Exchange and a more secure and robust offering than pure Webmail systems such as Google’s Gmail.

“We’ve spent the past year working with our global customers to develop a Web-based platform that will redefine how e-mail is deployed, managed and used within organizations of all types and sizes,” said Ben Duncan, founder and CEO at AtMail. “E-mail is the lifeblood of how organizations communicate, and AtMail 6.0 takes aim at leveraging the benefits inherent in both on-premise and Web 2.0 e-mail systems for end-users and IT managers alike.”

AtMail 6.0 extends its ability to deploy Web-based e-mail and archival solutions to small and medium sized businesses, government and education institutions. Now organizations of all sizes can easily design and customize an enterprise-grade Webmail and server solutions to manage e-mail and collaboration processes that meet unique demands and changing business conditions.
