SmarterMail is the Microsoft Exchange alternative because it is the only other email server on the market with native support for MAPI, the protocol that powers Exchange and Outlook. That means anything you can do on Exchange you can do with SmarterMail: no plug-ins and no additional software required. SmarterMail offers all of this and more for a FRACTION of the cost of Exchange. And unlike Exchange, features like instant messaging and audio / video conferencing with screen sharing are included at no extra charge.
Compatible with all major desktop and mobile web browsers, using the webmail client eliminates the necessity of any other software, from email clients to calendar apps, freeing up disk space and system resources, and eliminating the maintenance tasks that come from having more software installed on laptops and personal computers.
With support for all major email protocols, including IMAP, POP, EAS, EWS, WebDav, and MAPI, you have your choice of desktop client: Outlook for Windows or MacOS, Apple Mail, Windows Mail, eM Client, Thunderbird, Gmail, Spark, Mailbird, and countless others!
In addition, SmarterMail is the only Windows mail server on the market, outside of Exchange, that offers native support for MAPI as opposed to offering Outlook plug-ins that simply mimic Exchange features. This makes SmarterMail the perfect alternative to Microsoft Exchange.
SmarterMail offers a number of collaboration features that make it easy to work together with team members, customers, and partners. This includes organizational calendars, conference room scheduling, shared contacts, calendars, tasks and notes, instant messenger, Team Workspaces for online conferencing, and much more.
SmarterMail comes equipped with several email security features that are available without spending more money or adding third-party software. This includes industry standard spam filtering as well as enterprise-level antivirus. Additionally, SmarterTools offers enterprise-level solutions such as Message Sniffer that can be integrated seamlessly.
With an extremely simple set up process, getting SmarterMail installed and running takes minutes. From there, SmarterMail offers system administrators a number of administration tools to help keep things running smoothly. In addition, simple tasks can be handed off to domain administrators, freeing system administrators up for the more important task of keeping the server stable and secured.
For those who prefer using email clients, calendaring and notes apps, and more on their mobile devices, SmarterMail seamlessly integrates with whatever you want to use. With support for Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync, your choice of mobile client or app, on iOS or Android, is practically limitless: Outlook Mobile, iOS Mail, Gmail, Samsung Mail, Blue Mail, Spark and more!
