Published on November 22, 2007

Dear AXIGEN Friends,

We are happy to announce the commercial release of version 5.0.1 of the AXIGEN Mail Server. Having enhanced automation and configuration requirements in mind, the new version comes with an important new feature related to domain migration. Within domain configuration, one can specify if accounts should be automatically created in the AXIGEN storage for users who successfully authenticate in LDAP through the POP3, IMAP and/or WebMail services.

In order to upgrade, please visit the Downloads area on our website at
http://www.AXIGEN.com/mail-server/downloads.php and select the desired product kit.

For a detailed description of version 5.0 new features and enhancements, please see the list below.

Best regards,
The AXIGEN Team
