SmarterMail 10.x

Posted by CHUG on August 07, 2012

We've just upgraded our mail server to SmarterMail 10.  There are a lot of exciting new features available in this version.  Below are just a few...

New Mobile Interface for Smartphones

A light, yet fully-functional interface created exclusively for smartphones that makes managing email, calendars, contacts, tasks and notes on Android, iPhones and Windows phones easier than ever. The new mobile interface is perfect for times when you can't use a mobile email client, like when you need to check your schedule on a colleague's iPhone or want to check your email on your spouse's Galaxy II.

Support for Multiple Contact Email Addresses

Expanding on SmarterMail's already robust contact management tools, users can now add additional email addresses for every contact in their address book. These additional contact email addresses will even sync across multiple devices when using technologies such as SyncML, Microsoft ActiveSync, SharepointSync, Exchange Web Services and others.

 Conference Room Scheduling

 Just like with Microsoft Exchange, it is now possible to set up conference room resources that can be shared across an organization. This allows users to schedule time in conference rooms and means they no longer need to manage separate documents or calendars for conference room availability. In addition, users can see conference room availability and conflicts when setting up appointments just as they see attendee conflicts and availability.

 Support for Remote Wipe of Mobile Devices

 Mobile devices are used more and more, both personally and professionally. That means they end up storing vast amounts of critical information, including contact information, bank account information and even personal and professional documents. Therefore, a lost or stolen mobile device can mean disaster for the device owner. System administrators now have the ability to reset any mobile device that is synced with SmarterMail back to factory default settings. This can be done quickly, easily and securely, from anywhere at any time, right from the webmail interface.

Page Update

Posted by CHUG on April 13, 2011

The CHUG website is now powered by way of WCMS (Web Content Management System).

A web content management system (WCMS) is a software system that provides website authoring, collaboration, and administration tools designed to allow users with little knowledge of web programming languages or markup languages to create and manage website content with relative ease. A robust WCMS provides the foundation for collaboration, offering users the ability to
manage documents and output for multiple author editing and participation.

This new system should provide us with methods to better interact with our clients.  Since this is still a work in progress, please be patient while the dust settles.
