Idaya launches VSDMail- a new killer app for ISPs

Author: JT Smith

Zoe Knipe writes: "SMEs and corporates often find controlling and reconfiguring their email a cumbersome process. For simple jobs such as setting up a new mailbox, creating an autoresponder or changing passwords, they usually have to contact their ISP?s help desk for assistance. In most cases, the only alternative is to install a local mailserver, costing upwards of $1000, plus ongoing maintenance and licensing."
VSDMail provides a simple, secure method for the domain owner to configure email from their own desktop. From the user?s point of view, VSDMail puts the reconfiguration process at their fingertips, requires little technical knowledge, and means that changes can be effected immediately rather than waiting for technical support.

VSDMail is available to SME and corporate customers running sendmail on Linux. Pricing has been designed to offer attractive margins to resellers whilst also enabling very affordable end-user pricing.

The following features are included in VSDMail:

· Add or remove domain names
· Manage multiple POP3 mailboxes
· Change mailbox passwords

· Email address/alias configuration

· Email autoresponder configuration
· Fully secure - all communication encrypted using OpenSSL
