HaL Software Systems has announced the availability of Ishmail (Information SuperHighway Mail), a multi-media electronic mail tool for Unix systems. Ishmail features a Motif graphical user interface and extensive support for MIME (the Internet standard for multi-media mail). Extensive on-line help, including a user's guide which can be viewed on-line on the World Wide Web (www.hal.com/products/sw), combined with an industry-standard user interface, make this product very easy to learn and to use. Ishmail is available on a variety of Unix platforms, including Linux, SunOS, Solaris, AIX, HP-UX, DEC OSF/1 and Novell UnixWare. Compatibility with the most common Unix mail-folder formats ensures easy transition for new users and coexistence with other e-mail programs.
In addition to on-line documentation, Ishmail utilizes the Internet for distribution and technical support. The product can be down-loaded from HaL's ftp server (ftp.halsoft.com) with a 30-day free, no-obligation evaluation license. If the product is purchased, a permanent license is delivered by e-mail. A single-user license is $99. Multi-user discounts, educational discounts and site licenses are also available.
