Intuitive Webmail

With a webmail interface that’s intuitive for both casual and power users, SmarterMail provides access to email, instant messaging, calendars, contacts, notes, and tasks from any device or tablet with a Web browser. If you don’t want to use an email client like Outlook, you don’t have to; all of SmarterMail’s functionality is available using a web browser.


Share files and eliminate attachments with cloud-based file storage

Users can turn their SmarterMail mailbox into their own personal cloud and send files of all sizes to friends, family and business associates. By uploading files to the server and sharing them through public links, users will never have to worry that a file is too large. As an added benefit, using file storage to share files improves the overall health of the mail server because large files are no longer taxing the spool.


Better chat than MSN or Yahoo!

Having instant access to co-workers is critical but using third-party services can be difficult. SmarterMail’s instant messaging:

  • Eliminates any additional user management.
  • Offers complete tracking of messages across a server and domain for regulatory compliance.
  • Keeps all communication within the organization versus going through public services or servers.

Touch and go

Emailing a contact, mapping an address or adding an email address to your contacts list has never been easier. SmarterMail’s touch-and-go feature turns addresses, phone numbers and email addresses into links for click-to-map, click-to-call and click-to-mail functionality.


Find attachments easily

Over time, it can be difficult to find a file that you received from a contact or sent in a message.The attachments view makes searching for a file hassle-free by displaying all incoming and outgoing messages with attachments in a single location.


Webmail for all your email communications

Use SmarterMail to manage multiple email accounts. Users can send and receive messages from any email clients that support POP, IMAP and SMTP email accounts and configure different signatures to use with each account.


Auto-complete addressing

Because most users send email to the same recipients, SmarterMail automatically pulls email addresses from sent messages, contacts lists, aliases, mailing lists and the Global Address List (GAL) and uses them to auto-complete the To, Cc and Bcc fields of new messages and appointment invitations.


Everything indexed

With SmarterMail’s search capabilities, users can find any message, appointment, attachment, contact, task or note with just one click. As an added benefit for administrators, the webmail’s search indexing increases the speed in which search results are returned.


Respond quicker with follow-up flagging

With the sheer number of messages users receive daily, it can be easy to forget to respond to an important email from a client, friend, or family member. SmarterMail lowers this risk with the ability to mark emails for follow-up, ensuring that important emails can be identified at a glance.


Easily migrate mailboxes from Gmail, Live Mail, iMail, Zimbra and more

With SmarterMail’s built-in mailbox migration tool, new users can easily transfer their email and collaboration items from another provider to their new mailbox. With its easy-to-understand instructions, the mailbox migration tool guides users through these tasks without help from administrators.


Link tasks to emails for greater efficiency and better organization

Because email exchanges often result in new tasks, SmarterMail includes the ability to link a message to a task. By linking emails and tasks together, users can ensure relevant communications regarding a task are always easily accessible and available.


Unified Email and Collaboration Server

SmarterMail is a powerful Windows mail collaboration server designed to help businesses connect with customers, employees, and partners using today’s most popular email clients like Microsoft Outlook for Windows or Mac and a wide variety of mobile devices. Increase productivity with enterprise-class collaboration features that most people associate with more expensive mail services such as Microsoft Exchange, including email, contacts, calendars, tasks and notes.


Easily find a conference room

It’s just as easy to schedule where to meet as it is to coordinate with meeting participants. A conference or meeting room can be selected as part of the scheduling process, and if there is a conflict, it is prominently displayed so that either a different room can be selected or an alternate day or time can be found.


Support for the latest and greatest desktop clients

SmarterMail is one of a select few mail servers to support Exchange Web Services in place of the deprecated MAPI technology for synchronizing with Microsoft Outlook for Windows and Mac and Apple Mail. In addition, SmarterMail supports CalDAV, CardDAV, SharePoint Sync, SyncML, IMAP and POP to support other email clients like Mozilla Thunderbird, Apple Mail and even older versions of Outlook and Outlook Express.


Mailing lists for large email distributions

Businesses can use SmarterMail’s mailing list feature to send mass email to customers regarding special promotions, product updates, or company news. Manage opt-in email lists and distribute email communications to large groups of people quickly and easily. Automatic detection and removal of bounced emails ensures greater efficiency in mailing list maintenance.


Robust calendaring and scheduling

SmarterMail’s calendaring feature allows users to choose their default calendar view, show task start dates and due dates, specify working hours, and view the 7-day weather forecast. Plus, the free-busy scheduler and appointment invites with availability checking make it easy to find time to collaborate with business and personal contacts from within the webamil interface.


Full mobile support for communicating on-the-go

With SmarterMail, users can communicate efficiently regardless of their mobile platform. Synchronization of email and collaboration items is accomplished through CalDAV, CardDAV, and SyncML protocols, in addition to other sync technologies. It doesn’t matter if users are on Google Android, Apple iPhones or even Windows phones—SmarterMail works regardless of mobile device or operating system.


Full contact management, including attachment, meeting and email history

SmarterMail’s contact management allows users to keep detailed information on each person they communicate with, including the ability to log multiple email addresses per contact. That way personal communication can be separated from professional interactions. In addition, finding information on a contact in your address book has never been easier. Users can track entire conversations with a contact or view a list of recent appointments and attachments related to each contact with a click of a button. Plus, users can download, save or send contacts in .CSV or vCard format.


Complete Mobile Communication

It’s easy to communicate using email and instant messaging from most smartphones and tablets, including Android, BlackBerry, iOS and Windows mobile devices. SmarterMail also supports synchronization of email and collaboration items via Exchange ActiveSync, SyncML, CalDAV and CardDAV giving users access to their calendars, contacts, tasks and notes on hundreds of compatible devices.


Built for quick and easy mobile navigation

SmarterMail’s web-based interface was built for speed and mobility. Even the slowest tablets will notice how fast the browsing experience is, and the best part is that all of the enhancements are magnified for desktop users. Users deserve the full SmarterMail experience, regardless of whether they’re using a mouse or a tablet interface.


Remote wipe for lost or stolen devices

System administrators can now quickly, easily and securely wipe a synced mobile device from anywhere, at any time, using the SmarterMail Web interface. This becomes even more important as people store more and more personal and business data on their devices. Once a new mobile device is acquired, or the old one recovered, simply re-sync it with a SmarterMail account to regain access to all emails, contacts, calendar events, contacts and more.


Interface designed specifically for smartphones

SmarterMail includes a simple, yet fully effective, mobile interface designed specifically for smartphone users. Managing email, contacts, calendars, tasks and notes on Android, iPhone and Windows phones via the mobile interface is hassle-free and easier than ever. While users can always sync their phone’s mail and calendaring apps with SmarterMail, the mobile Web interface is perfect for those times when a personal phone is unavailable or out of reach and you need to borrow a friend’s phone to set up a meeting, check your mail and more.


Easily migrate from any mail service

Move a single mailbox, or an entire domain, from mail services like:

  • Gmail
  • Yahoo!
  • Hotmail / Windows Live
  • Microsoft Exchange
  • Or even mail servers like Merak, iMail and MailEnable
