Ajax-based system for drag-and-drop of email items
Hostopia, a business unit of Deluxe Corp, has launched a new version of Webmail and an enhanced version of its EasyMail administrator control panel. It has also upgraded its 3 million email users to Webmail 5.
According to Hostopia, the new version of Webmail with EasyMail enhanced features include, Ajax-based system that allows full drag-and-drop of email items; calendar events for an intuitive desktop feel; interface that mirrors desktop applications while being entirely web-based; and ‘Infinite scroll’ feature that allows instantaneous review of large inboxes.
In addition, the new version also features, the capability to launch collaboration features such as calendar sharing and SyncSuite that allows users to synchronise contact lists, calendars and tasks between their desktop, internet and mobility devices; and auto-detect and set up user mail preferences.
Paul Engels, chief marketing officer of Hostopia, said: This email system development exemplifies the benefits of a true, cloud-based SaaS system. Rather than planning through months of expensive and disruptive software and hardware updates, we simply develop, test and propagate updates to the cloud. Our users wake up the next morning to an all-new and improved feature experience – without paying a cent in project or new licensing fees.
