    PITTSBURGH, Jan. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Internet email software maker Cyrusoft
 International, Inc. today announced a February 2nd ship date for the
 Unix-based version of their Mulberry Email Client package.  The software is
 currently available for public testing and download at the company's website.
     Mulberry is a leading cross-platform IMAP and POP email client, with more
 than 500,000 users worldwide.  Version 2.0.5 has been previously available for
 Macintosh and Windows 95/98/NT/2000/ME operating systems.  Mulberry first
 shipped in 1996, and has long been known for its outstanding support for IMAP
 and related remote access protocols.  Support for POP3 and a unique
 disconnected mode was added in 1999.
     Versions of Unix currently supported by Mulberry include Red Hat Linux
 versions 5 and later and equivalents, Linux PPC 2000, Solaris 8 and later (x86
 and Sparc).  Other versions of Mulberry for the Unix family of operating
 systems will be released in stages during 2001.

     "We're delighted to finally make our Linux and Solaris versions
 available," said Cyrusoft CEO and founder Matt Wall.  "Mulberry is now the
 only commercial-grade combined IMAP and POP desktop client available on all
 three major desktop operating systems."
     Wall added, "This release should be particularly attractive to companies
 moving into Linux which need a robust email client that works with the more
 traditional systems.  Mulberry's interface is virtually identical on Linux,
 Solaris, Mac, and Windows, and users can readily switch back and forth."
     Mulberry 2.0.5 now fully supports SSL transport-layer security encryption
 with any SSL/TLS-compatible IMAP or POP server.
     "Combined with Mulberry's previously-available message-encryption, secure
 administration, spoof-proof, and anti-message-tampering features, SSL now
 provides enterprises with complete end-to-end security options," said
 Cyrusoft's Chief Technical Officer, Dr. Cyrus Daboo.  "Mulberry is the only
 email tool that can provide both the productivity features business and
 enterprise users demand and the tight security options network managers
     Mulberry's SRP is $39.95 for a single copy with the PGP option, $35.95
 without, and is available for direct purchase from the company's website.
 Discount and site licensing programs are available, including a special
 discount program for non-profits and educational institutions.  Pricing for
 multi-user systems and for sites is based on the number of users, with each
 user being allowed to use Mulberry on all their available systems.
     "Why pay twice or even three times for the same software?" Wall asked
 rhetorically. "That's what our competitors force you to do.  Mulberry's
 pricing structure is based on the simple premise that people use software, not
 computers, so once you have a Mulberry license, you can use it on any computer
 you have access to."
