Messaging Architects Releases M+Extranet 3.5 for Enhanced Web 2.0-Enabled Collaboration of Novell GroupWise Users

New Version of M+Extranet Empowers GroupWise Users' Collaboration With Web-Based Social Networking Software, Such as Podcasting, Blogging, and RSS Feeds

MONTREAL--(Marketwire - May 14, 2008) - Messaging Architects, the experts in email lifecycle management and compliance, today announced the release of M+Extranet 3.5. M+Extranet, formerly known as GWExtranet, is a powerful, web publishing solution that enables organizations running Novell GroupWise to collaborate more efficiently with both GroupWise and non-GroupWise users, while taking advantage of the latest web 2.0-based social networking software.

"M+Extranet truly empowers GroupWise users to benefit from web-based social networking software to share and disseminate information directly from their GroupWise platform," says Brian Anderson, M+Extranet developer. "With M+Extranet, employees can share their corporate calendars, folders, address books, publish events, and engage in interactive exchange, regardless of the email platform of their counterparts."

Until now M+Extranet was known to clients as GWExtranet. The change in name is consistent with Messaging Architects' holistic approach to email lifecycle management reflected in its M+Platform. "We developed the M+Platform as a modular and extensible framework designed to bridge email security gaps, automate retention, ensure compliance, and track the entire cycle of the message from the moment it enters the email system to its end-of-life destruction. M+Extranet is the module for enhanced collaboration that we integrated into the M+Platform," explains Ranjit Sarai, Product Manager for M+Extranet at Messaging Architects. "The name change was adopted to illustrate our philosophy to messaging as an integrated platform that serves your business needs."

With M+Extranet, GroupWise users have several choices for disseminating information quickly to a large number of people as a web page or a blog, via a podcast or an RSS feed. This makes it an efficient and cost-effective solution for posting up-to-the-minute content on a company intranet site, a client extranet site, or a student portal. "M+Extranet has become a key element in our communications strategy," confirms Andrea Gilbreath, Technology Coordinator at Tuscaloosa City Schools.

M+Extranet supports the XML open standard to provide a high level of customization and to ensure a consistent brand and end-user experience with the organization's website.


M+Extranet 3.5 is now available. Current GWExtranet clients are entitled to the new M+Extranet 3.5 license as part of their subscription. For more information, please visit Messaging Architects' website at:
