EmailXtender Now Offers an Even More Powerful and Flexible

Solution to Optimize Enterprise Messaging Systems

Aug 28, 2001, 01:00 ET from OTG Software, Inc.

    ROCKVILLE, Md., Aug. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- OTG Software, Inc. (Nasdaq:   OTGS),
 a leading provider of online data storage, data access and email management
 solutions, today announced the general availability of enhancements to
 EmailXtender(TM), its patent-pending email management solution for Microsoft
 Exchange and Lotus Domino environments.  These enhancements further strengthen
 OTG's position in the messaging management market, while providing better
 performance and stability for its customers.
     EmailXtender automatically captures email messages and their attachments
 from Exchange 5.5, and now Exchange 2000, freeing up message servers and
 increasing server reliability and uptime.  Since email servers and end-users'
 local drives are freed of message saturation, as archived emails are routed to
 alternate storage, and server performance is optimized, the total cost of
 ownership is reduced.
     The addition of Exchange 2000 support will also aid users in migrating to
 the Exchange 2000 platform.  Administrators can migrate the bulk of their
 Exchange 5.5 message store to EmailXtender, minimizing the need to convert
 large databases of aged messages and attachments, thereby maintaining
 visibility to them during the conversion.  EmailXtender seamlessly combines
 aged Exchange 5.5 messages with new Exchange 2000 messages, enabling virtually
 immediate access and continuity for end-users.  Finally, EmailXtender allows
 users to run and access messages and attachments in a mixed platform
     "By understanding customers' needs, OTG continues to stand out with its
 latest version of EmailXtender," said David Druker, Consulting Research
 Analyst, at Ferris Research.  "As more enterprises adopt Exchange 2000, they
 are seeking better ways to manage their messaging system and make the
 transition easier.  EmailXtender and products like it can help."
     "EmailXtender is the answer as enterprises search for powerful and
 efficient management and storage solutions for the ever-growing volume of
 email," said Peter Smails, Vice President of Product Management, OTG Software.
 "The addition of Exchange 2000 support validates OTG's commitment to helping
 businesses better manage their mission-critical information by enhancing its
 solutions to meet customers' changing business needs."
