 BEYONDMAIL FOR WINDOWS BETA SCORES HIT WITH MAJOR ACCOUNTS
 CAMBRIDGE, Mass., May 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Beyond, Incorporated, a leading enterprise-wide e-mail and workgroup applications vendor, today announced that BeyondMail for Windows Release 1.0/MHS is being rolled out in an aggressive beta program. Amoco Corporation, Baxter Healthcare Corporation, BMW Financial Services of North America, Kemper Service Company, U.S. Shoe Corporation and more than 30 other corporations, are currently testing the Windows beta product.
 The soon-to-be-released BeyondMail for Windows takes full advantage of Windows 3.1 functionality and extends end-user and administrative configurability for unmatched ease-of-use and management. It combines e-mail with forms management to provide customers with simple and sophisticated mail-based workgroup applications.
 "BeyondMail for Windows was designed with the needs of both end- users and IS managers in mind," said Charles Digate, president and CEO of Beyond. "It delivers the highest levels of configurability and advanced functionality to allow end-users and IS managers to customize the product to suit their particular work environments. We're seeing major interest in BeyondMail for Windows as companies recognize the value of an enterprise-wide e-mail system that can also provide workgroup and corporate-wide applications."
 BeyondMail for Windows builds on the capabilities of BeyondMail for DOS. It adds new mailbox management features, including Auto Forward(tm), Message Clerk(tm) and While I'm Out(tm) rule templates, to help end-users quickly build customized filtering and routing applications.
 "I have seen nothing on the market today that comes close to BeyondMail's ability to manage messages and related information," said Chris Means, technical consultant at Baxter Healthcare Corporation, Renal Division. "It provides an excellent yet intuitive interface for sending, receiving and managing messages, while at the same time automating and integrating mail management processes both internally, and with other applications. The new BeyondMail for Windows provides the best Windows e-mail interface I've seen yet. The implementation and configurability of the icon bar is simply beautiful."
 The new product incorporates full Windows functionality, including support for Object Linking and Embedding (OLE) and both client and server Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE). OLE and DDE greatly extend the flexibility of messaging, allowing data from diverse applications, including sound, complex graphics, and spreadsheet data, to be included in BeyondMail messages and enabling BeyondMail to be accessed from within any Windows application. The product supports customizable icons and rich text, allowing users to personalize their icon bars and change the text, font and color of their mail messages.
 BeyondMail for Windows offers more than 100 end-user configuration options. It also provides another level of configuration options designed for administrators. Among the more helpful are full management for end-user rule accessibility, privileges, default settings, and workgroup profiles.
 "BeyondMail's ability to act as a powerful mail applications integration tool distinguishes it from other e-mail packages available today," said Terrence McCarthy, managing director of Neoteric Inc., a New York-based systems integrator specializing in messaging and workflow solutions. "At first glance, customers immediately start thinking of the myriad mail-enabled and workflow-type applications they can build with the product. The combination of BeyondMail's rich feature set, open systems and client/server architecture, and the company's outstanding support, make it an ideal product for us and our customers."
 BeyondMail for Windows was developed under Windows 3.1 and is fully compatible with Windows 3.0 and BeyondMail for DOS. BeyondMail for Windows will run on NetWare, IBM PC LAN, 3Com and 3+Share, Banyan VINES and Microsoft LAN manager networks and is priced at $995, for a 10-user license. The remote access edition is available at a price of $295.
 Beyond Incorporated, based in Cambridge, Mass., is the leading developer of enterprise-wide, e-mail software that delivers advanced workgroup application functionality. Privately held Beyond has regional offices throughout North America as well as a network of international distributors.
