Download Business Mail Gateway 3.1


 

Journalist / Independent Consultant

You have your desktop PC at home and you have your on the road laptop. You want to use the laptop to send and receive email whilst traveling, but when you get home you want to find that you have copies of all email you have received and copies of all email you have sent waiting on your home system.

This makes it an email system that automatically backs itself up so you always have two copies of everything. It won't matter which computer you use, BMG provides the solution.

Of course, the single person benefits listed directly below also apply.


 

Single person with email at home

Q. I am just one person with email at home, what possible use could BMG be to me?

  • At first it was a surprise to us but - real single users - report that they love the new feeling of being in control of their email.
  • Keep using your favorite emailer
  • Automatically collect email from old email accounts, just in case a message is waiting.
  • Second chance sending - If you have sent an email from your emailer but have not yet connected (dialed-up) you can delete it.
  • If your email provider's mail sending service deteriorates then you can easily switch to another provider without changing a thing on your emailer.
  • Get a log of all email sent and received.
  • Optionally - keep your dial-up connection up. Ideal for dial-up ISP's that have no connection charge but will drop the line if you do not use it for a few minutes.
  • Get an archive of all email sent and received. If you delete an email by mistake - no problem simply re-receive it from BMG.
  • Optionally re-direct your email to another email address.
  • Set computer to collect (and forward) email while you are away.
  • Set your computer to collect email at night.
  • Local loopback - BMG can be set to send you back a copy of any email you send. On many emailers this copy is much easier to "thread" than the "Sent Items" copy.
  • For people who don't want to, or can't be, on line all the time (e.g. Laptop users), BMG converts any emailer into a great off-line emailer. How? - it lets your emailer work on-line all the time! It IS on line all the time, on-line to BMG. And BMG does all the email side of being on/off line with your ISP.
  • You have more that one computer and a home LAN (Local Area Network) and want to read email on another PC. e.g. for a guest.
  • Adds Authentication to an emailer that does not support it. Laptop owners often need SMTP Authentication when traveling and logging in from strange networks. BMG does the Authentication so your emailer need not.
  • You can run fully professional List Server software. BMG has built in support for LSoft's Listserv, (noncommercial users can use LSoft's no charge license).
  • Expansion - the future - your requirements may change. BMG is at its most powerful when two or more people each in their own home appear (as far email is concerned) to be in the same office.
  • And of course to you BMG is free, as you are "less than five" users.

Small business - handle all work email both at home and at work

All the benefits above plus

  • Keep using your favorite emailer
  • Read/write your email either at home or at work
  • Email you send or receive can be sent automatically to both home and office
  • Have groups of people see all the email sent to an address e.g. sales@... even when some of them are home workers using their PC at home.
  • Have any replies sent to the (e.g.) sales@... address go to all others in the group, even when some of them are home workers using their PC at home.
  • Have any email sent by anyone in the team go to all others in the same group, even when some of them only ever use email on their home PCs.
  • Monitor email sent to or by users, even if they are a home worker using their PC at home. Useful if for legal reasons you need to keep a copy of all email sent by employees. Without BMG, this can be almost impossible especially when staff send email from their home PCs. With BMG it is automatic, even for the home PC.
  • Automatically backup all your email. As you can have all your email on more than one PC in more than one place, you have a natural automatic off-site back up.
  • No computer is the main server, no computer is more important than any other, there is no central weak point to fail. No central point of high cost.
  • Use a laptop computer. When traveling it collects email directly from an ISP but when in the office gets/send its email via the office LAN.
  • Adds Authentication to an emailer that does not support it. Laptop owners often need SMTP Authentication when traveling and logging in from strange networks. BMG does the Authentication so your emailer need not.
  • You can run fully professional List Server software, as BMG has built in support for LSoft's Listserv, (Commercial users need to pay LSoft for a license).

  • Just do it - with BMG the email side is easy.
  • This is a flexible way to run a consultancy with few partners.
  • Each can work in their own home or with their laptop at a customer's site.
  • The partnership can share mail in all the ways described above.
  • No one PC is a main server - any user can stop or go on vacation and the system just keeps going.
