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. Information and direct download links are available at http://www.mulberrymail.com; screenshots are available at http://www.cyrusoft.com/mulberry/unix/screens.html; links for all Cyrusoft products are at http://www.cyrusoft.com. "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 require." 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."
