 NETMANAGE ENHANCES ITS CHAMELEON NETMAIL FOR WINDOWS;


FIRST NATIVE UNIX MAIL FOR WINDOWS GETS EVEN MORE FUNCTIONALITY
 CUPERTINO, Calif., Aug. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- NetManage continues to bring more power and functionality to its popular Chameleon TCP/IP for Windows software, by announcing several significant enhancements to the programs' NetMail E-mail capabilities.
 By including both a UNIX SMTP mail client and a UNIX POP2 mail server, NetMail now supports multiple users on a single PC, enabling users to share PCs. In addition, NetMail now has a complete address book utility that enables users to perform individual as well as group mailings, an important feature for corporate users. First Native UNIX Mail for Windows
 Historically, corporations have had major problems when trying to integrate E-mail services between PCs and UNIX workstations in a corporate network. NetManage became the first company to address that issue head on when it introduced NetMail in September of 1991. It was the first native UNIX mail for Windows and provided PC users direct access to UNIX mail services (SMTP). PC users were finally able to send and receive mail to and from any UNIX host on the network while still providing users the ability to send and receive mail from one PC to another. Most Powerful E-mail System for Windows
 By adding these additional capabilities, NetManage's NetMail continues to set the standard for Windows-based E-mail systems. Among the program's many features are:
 -Direct access to UNIX mail services
 -Both SMTP mail client and a POP2 mail server included
 -Complete address book functions
 -Attractive, and intuitive, graphical user interface
 -Point-and-click operation
 -Viewing of multiple messages
 -Cut, paste, and insert capabilities
 -Carbon and blind copies are supported
 With NetMail, the PC user can send and receive mail to and from any UNIX host on the network, directly from one PC to the other. NetMail provides a user friendly graphics user interface (GUI) shielding the PC user from the complicated UNIX environment. The user can create, send, receive, print, reply, forward, save, open and insert mail messages via easy-to-use Windows dialog boxes and point-and-click buttons.
 NetMail implements the UNIX mail protocol (SMTP) on the PC itself, so users do not require a gateway. Mail messages are sent and received directly, using the TCP/IP protocol.
 Messages are easy to create using the intuitive Windows editor. Users can view multiple mail messages at the same time and are able to cut-and-paste between them. ASCII files can be inserted into the message; carbon copies and blind copies are supported; incoming messages can be saved, edited, replied to or forwarded. Mail is received in the background, and outgoing messages that cannot be delivered are queued for retransmission.
 Mail can be sent and retrieved using a POP2 (Post Office Protocol, version 2) UNIX mail server for greater flexibility.
 NetMail is shipping as part of Chameleon. NetMail -- Proven in the Field
 One customer who has implemented Chameleon's NetMail is Siemens Nixdorf Information Systems Inc. in Santa Clara, Calif.
 "Chameleon allows those of us on the PC LAN to communicate with anyone on the corporate UNIX network," said Dr. Olaf Kaestner, Director, Technology & Special Projects, Siemens Nixdorf Information Systems Inc. "We now can receive a file transfer from a Siemens Nixdorf engineer in Germany or send mail to a project manager in Singapore as easily as we exchange E-mail messages among ourselves."
 Chameleon (including NetMail) runs on 11 of the facility's 12 Windows 3.1 PCs, allowing them to exchange E-mail and files with employees in the East Coast research and development lab as well as communicate with Siemens Nixdorf employees worldwide. About Chameleon
