MailSite Announces Perfect Companion to Apple iPhone 2.0 for Push Email, Calendar and Contacts

New MailSite Fusion Adds Support for Over-the-Air Activesync

CAMPBELL, CA--(Marketwire - June 9, 2008) - MailSite Software, Inc. announces MailSite Fusion 9, the industry's most compatible wired and wireless messaging platform. MailSite Fusion 9 includes a new ActiveSync server with DirectPush and can provide all of an organization's email and collaboration needs from a single server platform without the need for any additional software.

MailSite Fusion 9 pushes email, calendar and contacts over-the-air to every major smartphone. This includes Apple's new iPhone 2.0, Microsoft's Windows Mobile devices, RIM's BlackBerry devices and other smartphones that are compatible with Microsoft Exchange 2007 ActiveSync.

MailSite Fusion 9 continues to provide excellent integration with Microsoft Outlook 2007 for email, calendar and contacts without requiring any plug-ins. In addition MailSite Fusion 9 supports Mozilla Thunderbird, Mozilla Lightning and Google Calendar. MailSite Fusion 9 includes the Kaspersky anti-virus engine and the Mailshell anti-spam engine for protection against viruses and malware.

For small businesses, MailSite Fusion SE 9 runs on low-cost 32 bit servers and includes everything required for a messaging platform. MailSite Fusion SE 9 does not require a dedicated server and can be administered by a Windows administrator. With licensing prices less than 50% of Microsoft Exchange 2007, small businesses now have a low-cost alternative.

For service providers, MailSite Fusion SP 9 is field-proven to scale to over a million subscribers on a single cluster. This offers carriers and hosting companies a low cost and brand-able messaging platform with the opportunity for profit margins that are substantially higher than with Hosted Exchange 2007.

"Adoption of mobile push email, calendar and contacts is just beginning to take-off," said David Ferris of Ferris Research. "The new Apple iPhone 2.0 will take ActiveSync beyond the large enterprise to the mass market and MailSite is perfectly positioned to take advantage of this opportunity."

"The new ActiveSync server in MailSite Fusion 9 just works," said Jaime Bolanos, IT Manager of Associated Foreign Exchange, a MailSite customer in Encino, California. "By configuring your Windows Mobile smartphone with your server name, user name and password, MailSite Fusion works just like an Exchange 2007 server."

"MailSite Fusion 9 is the most exciting release in the history of our company," said John Davies, President and CEO. "MailSite Fusion 9 offers our customers the easiest and most comprehensive messaging platform for wired and wireless users in the industry," continued Davies.

MailSite Fusion 9 will be available in June 2008 from MailSite Software, Inc. and from resellers around the world. MailSite Fusion SE 9 starts at $495 per year for 20 users. Anti-spam and anti-virus subscriptions will be available at additional cost. For more information visit: http://www.mailsite.com.
