Overview - The Exchange Alternative

SmarterMail IS Microsoft Exchange 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, no additional software, it just works! SmarterMail offers all of this, and more, for a FRACTION of the cost of Exchange. And unlike Exchange, features like audio/video group chat and Team Workspaces, which offers audio and video conferencing with screen sharing, are included at no extra charge.

An Ideal Email Solution

SmarterMail is a full-featured email, group chat and team collaboration server that is the smart alternative to Microsoft Exchange. It's the only Windows mail server on the market that offers native support for MAPI, as opposed to offering MAPI plug-ins for Outlook that simply mimic Exchange features. Plus, Outlook plug-ins require additional installation, management, and support, and come with their own overhead.

SmarterMail offers other advantages as well: it has a much lower price point than Exchange, has minimal hardware requirements, offers superior stability, and can reduce maintenance costs. As a result, it has a significantly lower total cost of ownership than Exchange, making it the best-in-class email and collaboration solution for SMBs and enterprises, as well as for ISPs and hosting companies.
