On brings Net email to Novell LANs

On Technology will deliver next month a version of its DaVinci eMail for Novell LANs that will let NetWare users send email over the Net without asking NetWare administrators to jump through hoops.

On Technology will deliver next month a version of its DaVinci eMail for Novell LANs that will let NetWare users send email over the Internet without asking NetWare administrators to jump through hoops.

Scheduled to be unveiled at the Networld + Interop trade show in Las Vegas in early April, DaVinci SMTP eMail will encapsulate several Internet messaging protocols (Simple Mail Transport Protocol, Post Office Protocol 4, and Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions) but will run on networks based on NetWare's IPX networking protocol, said Steven Guthrie, an On Technology spokesperson. Until now, NetWare LANs could use only applications based on the Internet's IP networking protocol if administrators loaded TCP/IP stacks on every user's desktop or installed IP-to-IPX gateways on the LAN servers.

To make sure that NetWare users don't have to recreate their current address books, Guthrie said DaVinci SMTP eMail will be able to capture those address books off of either NetWare Directory Services, a global directory of server files, or the NetWare bindery. The company has not yet set pricing for the new DaVinci clients.
