shared addressbook@Mail Groupware combines the ability to share Address-book and Calendar Items/Tasks among groups of users with optional permission levels (Read/Write and Read-Only).

The system provides a complete Web-based Groupware system for users within your organization. The Groupware module also provides an Outlook-to-webmail synchronization utility, allowing Contacts and Calendar data to be shared between Outlook 2003/2000 and the Web-client.

@Mail Groupware contains three Address-book types:

This is a group of Address-book entries representing every account on your @Mail system. If you are providing public email services, the Global Address-book can be disabled via the WebAdmin control panel. The Global Address-book is useful to an organization of any size.

The Personal Address-book allows users to separate personal contacts from Global and Shared contacts. These contacts can only be viewed by the individual user-account.

The Shared Address-book is similar to the Personal Address-book, with the additional functionality of sharing contacts with other users (or groups of users). Shared contacts can be assigned read/write permissions; enabling the users with whom the contacts are shared to modify the contact entries directly. Optionally, read-only access can be granted to allow the entry to be viewed by selected users, but can only be modified by the original owner.

groupware scheduler big@Mail Groupware Calendar:
The Calendar functionality of @Mail Groupware allows users to assign tasks to one another and set appointments (reminders). Permission level settings are provided, enabling the owner of a task to enable or restrict the recipients' ability to modify the task.

The Web-based Calendar and address-book can be synchronized to a desktop client running Outlook 2000/2003.

Uses for @Mail Groupware:
You can create a global Calendar for your organization, and notify everyone of meetings and important events.

You can schedule and share tasks with other employees, (especially useful for adhoc Groups working on a project where members will be added or removed during the project lifecycle).

You can post a schedule for selected Users or Groups. For instance, create a Group for Sales and post sales leads and follow-ups to your sales team.

You can specify which users have read-only and read-write access to an appointment. In this way, you can allow only a specified set of people to alter the dates and details of appointments.


webmail clientWeb Mail Client Features Include:
@Mail boasts an innovative user interface, pushing the boundaries of the traditional WebMail feature-set:
  • Intuitive GUI
    @Mail includes "Advanced" interfaces for both IE and Mozilla/Firefox that look like traditional desktop clients, utilizing the latest in Javascript/XUL & Ajax technologies. A light-weight "Simple" inteface is also provided, for access via any browser.
  • Groupware support
    Utilizing a permissions-based assignment system, Address Book and Calendar/Task data can be shared with and assigned to other users or groups [within @Mail]. Implement the @Mail Groupware solution to achieve maximum efficiency and enhance team productivity.
  • Enhanced Address Book
    @Mail's Enhanced Address Book functionality allows users to import and export contacts from/to CSV (Comma Separated Values) file format. Search and import functionality via LDAP is also provided. Users and administrators can utilize the powerful tabbed interface of the Address Book to create permissions-based shared contacts, controlling which contacts are visible to or editable by other users. The Address Book can also be configured to disallow permissions controls for all users (useful for free email services where global address book access is not desired).
  • Enhanced Scheduler (Calendar)
    The improved Scheduler interface allows users to manage appointments (tasks) on a quarterly, annual, or daily basis.
  • Outlook-to-WebMail Sync
    Microsoft Outlook can be synchronized with your WebMail account so that Contacts and Scheduler data can be shared between a desktop and WebMail client. If a user adds a new appointment (task) or contact while using Outlook or @Mail, the data will be automatically synchronized between the applications.
  • Start Page
    After logging into your email account, view a summary via the "start page". Here you can check new messages, calendar entries, tasks, and recent logins. This is a great place for placing company news, advertisement banners, or logos.
