Outlook Connector 2.1 Grows with Grouping Capabilities, MDaemon Auto Responders, Multiple-Account Profiles, Roaming Improvements and More...

Grapevine, TX - February 1, 2006 - Alt-N Technologies (www.altn.com) today announced the public beta test and planned release schedule of Outlook Connector 2.1 for MDaemon.

Using plug-in technology, Outlook Connector enables Outlook users to share their calendars, messages, contacts, tasks, notes and other items by using MDaemon as their email server. When added to the built-in groupware functions of MDaemon, Outlook Connector makes the benefits of Outlook group sharing affordable and easy to use for small and mid-size organizations. Users with an Outlook client can participate in group sharing though the WorldClient web mail server built into MDaemon.

"We are extremely pleased with the progress of this release," said Arvel Hathcock, Alt-N founder and CEO. "Outlook has some very popular group sharing capabilities and we are now making those available to economy-minded enterprises with limited to no professional IT support. The additional features of each release mean more people can work together using Outlook and MDaemon."


Outlook Connector 2.1 supports sorting and grouping capabilities. It also has an interface to set up MDaemon auto responders from within Outlook and it supports multiple accounts within Outlook profiles.


Outlook Connector merges several tested technologies into an integrated and reliable tool. These technologies are MAPI, Exchange Client Extensions and IMAP.

Outlook Connector is both a MAPI service provider and an Exchange Client Extension, which makes it work natively with the core functions of Outlook. Outlook Connector translates between the MAPI protocol in Outlook and the IMAP protocol in MDaemon. MDaemon stores all Outlook data in IMAP folders, making them shareable among authorized users.



Outlook Connector 2.1 adds sorting and grouping capabilities, an interface to setup MDaemon auto responders from within Outlook and support for multiple accounts within Outlook profiles. It also includes improvements to roaming profiles, distribution lists, sharing set up and attachment processing, plus several bug fixes.

The Outlook Connector plug-in is scheduled for release during March 2006. Information on participating in beta testing plus a complete list of features and changes are available from the Alt-N web site at http://www.altn.com/beta.


MDaemon 9.0 serves as the platform for Outlook Connector 2.1. Currently in beta testing, MDaemon 9.0 is scheduled for release during April 2006. More detailed news about MDaemon 9.0 is available here.
