AXIGEN Releases New 7.3 Commercial Version with Identity Confirmation

Category: Product Releases
Published on December 02, 2009

Dear AXIGEN Friends,

We are happy to announce the commercial release of AXIGEN Mail Server 7.3. Only two months after the launch of the desktop-like Ajax Webmail interface, version 7.3 comes to further emphasize the user-centric trend of our solution by focusing on effortless manageability and a higher level of security, through the introduction of a brand new Identity Confirmation system.

-- AXIGEN Identity Confirmation © is basically the implementation of a Challenge/Response-based anti-spam method. It shifts the burden of filtering email from the recipient to the sender by intercepting incoming messages and requiring new or unknown senders to confirm their identity, while still allowing legitimate communications to come through. More info.
-- Version 7.3 also enables users to import/export contacts in WebMail from/to other popular email clients and systems such as Outlook, Thunderbird, or Yahoo! Mail. System administrators are offered the ability to set detailed password expiration policies or to define customizable welcome messages to be sent to users' inbox upon account creation.

For the complete list of new features and enhancements brought by AXIGEN v7.3, please see below.

To download the new 7.3 release of the AXIGEN server and Outlook Connector, simply visit the Downloads Area on our website and select the desired product kits.

Please note that according to our technical support policy, only the current major AXIGEN version and the one preceding it are supported. For example, at this moment, only version 6.2.2 and the 7.x products are supported, while the assistance for older versions is discontinued.

Should you need further details on AXIGEN v7.3, our newly-introduced Identity Confirmation system, or should you be interested in other types of license upgrades or renewals, please contact us our Sales Team at:

Best regards,
