Open-Xchange is giving its Open-Xchange Server 5 a comprehensive feature update facelift in March with its first service patch.
Open-Xchange Server, which had been the engine behind Novells SUSE Linux Openexchange Server, is a modular, standards-based communications server with a WebDAV (Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning) interface.
It can work with both open-source and proprietary e-mail and groupware servers and clients.
Key enhancements include:
- Enhanced usability for Microsoft Outlook users with push technology for real-time connection.
- Server software has been improved to put less of a load on the server. Additionally, it now supports distributed mail servers.
- The new patch also significantly enhances all e-mail and groupware communications by adding in the SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) and TLS encryption protocols.
